Hello,

I am new to this forum but not to smule, I am wondering why my voice is crystal clear while recording but later when I save the song and publish , my voice quality is like 30%-35% lower which is not exactly as being recorded. am I missing any tips / Hardware requirements ??

I use :

IPAD PRO 2018 ( the one with USB-C and with no headphone jack )

Apogee Hypemic 

Steelseries Arctis 7 Headphones

What does that mean exactly?

Hi, 

While recording, I can notice that my voice quality is much better than after saving the song. I was wondering if i am missing any tips or any additional hardware needed to make the quality of saved songs as same as while recording

That didn’t help. Again, what is 30% reduced quality? Is it noisy, distorted, muffled … whatever. What changed? If you think you can “measure” it, there must be way to describe it. 

The quality shouldn’t change at all. I mean, the final song uses a lossy compression algorithm to reduce the file size, so there will be some quality reduction, but it should be at a level most people can’t perceive and it also shouldn’t be selective to the voice.

you are right , I guess because of the algorithm which changes the quality a little bit . I am always used to sing with regular earbuds which sound very good . I just started using Apogee Hypemic hoping to have better sound quality with adjustable gain which is really good , though after saving the song . I don't see huge difference among them .

I am using steelseries arctis 7 as my headphones for recording . I am happy with it , but is there any other suggestions you have for better headphones ?
