    So I started recording Hokuro's triphones (..or..trying. It all kind of went tits up.)

    But there seems to be a quirk to my mic (Logitech Clearchat) that is making this process damn near impossible.

    See, it'll record the first 4 sounds in the sequence hunky dory. :D Then I get to the last, and just EXPLODES the volume. Seriously. It yodeling spikes. I guessed at first my inflection was doing this, and tried changing it. No good. It always does this.

    It mostly strikes the consonant, so when I bring it into UTAU, it'll try to level out the vowel sound, resulting in this horrible distortion and icky sound in the background.

    :C

    Any idea how to fix this? Save getting a new mic? Because I've gone through more of these yodeling things than I probably should ever need. Not getting another so soon.

    Note: I'm recording this on a different comp (The new one = terrible for recording), so I don't have the audio forms on me. So no pics.

    You mean the consonant for the last one explodes?
    Is said recording one of the following?
    -Any sound with "P"
    -Any sound with "K"
    -Any sound with "F"
    -Any sound with "B"
    -Any sound with "T"
    -Any sound with "G"
    -Any sound with "A"

    If so, you sir, should get a pop filter! They kill the air the get into the recordings that are from your breath and the popping sound you can get from the above sounds.
    If NOT, I have NO idea. ._.; Sorry 'bout that. You could try de-amplifying the consonant so UTAU doesn't level out the vowel, but I don't know what would happen.

    The consonant I first noticed it was actually 'N'. ._. and it does this to ALL OF THEM on the last sound. Not just the obviously loud ones. And sometimes even the entire sound ('i ni' just got outright slaughtered.). It's just that the consonant is where it most obviously suffers.

    Otherwise I'd gladly invest in a pop filter to solve the problem.

    I really don't trust myself to adjust the volume in audacity, either...

    edit: Er. On further investigation, I have NO idea how I'd work a pop filter on this thing. It's a headset. ._.

    Weird indeed, considering it was amazing for my diphonic banks. 8 |
