My setup is very cheap. I consider myself a beginner, so I wanted to learn and let this learning journey progressively unveil the need for better gear.
Cable mic to audio interface: No Bull Music Gear' Premium XLR Cable (Black, 3m)
Audio interface: Behringer UMC22 Computer Audio Interface
Operating system: macOS Catalina version 10.15.7 (19H1323)
By this default setup, I get a very metallic sound for my voice, with almost no low end.
Question 1: Is this expected? Why? is it because the audio interface does not enjoy of any processing from sound drivers, whereas using a mini plug cable into the audio jack does?
Question 2: How can I fix this? Do I need a physical mixing board to provide better equalisation into the audio interface, or can I use a DAW to devote an auxiliar track to receive input from audio interface, apply better equalisation to it, and outputting to a custom MIDI interface that I can then use for both Zoom and OBS?
