    Hi,
    I just got a new mic for recording. It's pretty cheap. Cost only $7 on Amazon.

    But I can't help to notice that there's still this ambient or wind sound on my recordings. So, after a bit of research, I found a good way to remove those pesky, annoying background noise on your recordings.

    Voice Meter + VB Cable Driver

    This program is like a virtual audio mixer. You can change the settings of your mic to fit the voice that you want easily. Thanks to Alphaa for the tutorial.

    If you don't like his settings, you can use mine.

    Audacity

    Audacity has a lot of features and you are free to explore them. But the most famous one is the Noise Reduction effect/tool. With the right settings, your voice can actually sound clear and crisp.

    Here are the settings I use:

    Noise Reduction (can go 12-18)
    Compressor (Makes loud sound softer and soft sound louder)
    Equalization (Different output for each different microphone)
    Normalize (Smoothens peak levels)

    Special Thanks to KyleBlane for the other settings.

    Thank you so much for the helpful info! I've been looking into options as far as mics go and don't want to break the bank! :)

    Yep, Voice meter is awesome. I use that too :) VB meter seems a bit complicated to me though.
