Using the smartphone’s microphone

Using the smartphone’s microphone

Well… it may work. Really! While I would definitely suggest you to use a standalone condenser microphone for your recordings (and a pop-screen and a vocal booth as well!), yes — you still can try to record yourself through your mobile device’s microphone. Just keep in mind these simple rules:

  1. Don’t be too close to it
  2. And don’t be ‘on axis’ (see the image)

The reason is — plosives. They would be considered as a defects and your engineer will spent a lot of time (and your money) to reduce them.


If you need an advice or assessment, or you want me to prepare your audiobook for publishing, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

And always work with those you want to hug ツ
