Improvements to Home Studio Vocal Recording

Dear All,

I am trying to record some vocals in my home studio using a Rodes NT1a mic in front of a SE Reflexion Filter Pro, connected to Focusrite Vocal Master.

The acoustic at home aren't great, so before I put too much effort into these recording, I was wondering whether someone would offer their opinion on the quality on the recording and suggest any improvements which can be made.

I have uploaded a sample here:

Thanks a lot!

Treat your room. A few thoughtfully placed sound panels in the room your vocalist will be in will work wonders.

Recording sounds fine.
If you don't have a pop filter, it's good to have one in case.
I can highly recommend the JZ pop filter. Expensive but really worth it !

Many people will advise you to treat your room and whatnot. Honestly though, with proper EQ and Compression you can make any recording sound stellar.

I tend to put a Hi Pass Filer somewhere between 80-100hz, and a Hi shelf around 5k. Notch somewhere between 200-400, and make very fine adjustments between 2k-5k

Edit: These are very general numbers and your results may vary GREATLY
