I am new to recording, I've started trying to record some of my guitar/vocals. I recently brought a mic but my budget was limited, so it was only around 40£. Whenever I record with it there is a distracting hiss over anything i record, are there any ways I can eliminate this?
So far I have tried a basic noise gate, but when I am recording sound the hiss is still present over the guitar/vocals when I am creating enough sound to go over the noise gate. (Here is a sample recording showing the problem.)
I am recording using a subzero dynamic mic with an XLR to USB connector straight into my MacBook running GarageBand.
