I don’t know whether I should ask questions about vocal recording in this page but I really want to get some inspirations.
I am using a condenser mic (Focusrite CM25) for vocal recording.
When I stand far from the mic, it seems to pick up everything in my room in addition to my voice.
It is noisy as if I am using a cell phone to record.
But when I stand close to the mic, the frequency around 200-250 Hz would suddenly become boosted.
Turns out the sound was too much bass.
I searched on the internet and found this is what they call the proximity effect.
I tried to use EQ to lower down the frequency but it ended up with unacceptable distortion.
What should I do? Do other mixing techniques help? Or is it intrinsically the problem of the mic itself?
Plus, I am using the Elements version so there is nothing much I can do with vocal processing
