HOW CAN WE RECORD AUDIO WITHOUT SOUND AND NOISE AND IN CLEAR DENSITY?

Firstly, the equipment we use must be OF quality equipment in the market. We can mention many brand names here but I am only aiming to contribute to your quality perception so that I won’t promote anything. A German businessman has a good saying. ‘I’m not rich enough to buy cheap goods’ I think this is a promise that should be considered only in all equipment supplies, not only the voice-over equipment. If you want to passivate the voices outside the directed area, you should use a ribbon or cardioid type microphone and adjust the pattern. Using a woolly microphone head called pop filter will make a great contribution to noise in order to minimize environmental noise and wind.
