Reality Check!

So I have been planning on setting up a vocal studio of sorts in my house but I just recorded a short bit of a song on my $50 old phone and sounded totally different than what I expected...in a bad way, lol. I have included the song in this thread. Please listen on decent headphones or monitors if you can because I don't have any monitors or anything yet.

Will a good mic and acoustic treatment with a DAW make a big difference? HELP

For some reason the song doesn't play from the screen so you have to click the mp3 link to hear it.

Of course it will. What type of recording were you expecting from a cell phone?

Not sure what advice you are looking for beyond that. Your voice has a nice tonality. A good mic + pre and treated space can only improve things.

If you are wanting to record different singers, have a look into the Slate VMS mic system.

Please make an effort to paste in the appropriate forum thank you! High end is for...well, expensive gear and high end questions!
