How To Make HyperX QuadCast Sound Better?
HyperX QuadCast is a top-quality microphone that goes neck in neck with a blue yeti nano in terms of sound quality and performance. Even though it sounds great but some things cause it to sound low and bad. There are a few ways to achieve richer sound out of this bad boy. So, you’ll be making the most out of your microphone.
- The first and most important thing to do is you can get it off its mic stand and onto a boom arm. Taking it off the mic stand remove it away from any noises, that might include keyboard and mouse clicks, and other sounds on your desk that could otherwise, negatively impact the sound quality.
- Also, getting it on a boom arm, means that you can move it closer to your mouth, which means that you can turn the gain down, which makes a drastic difference in the amount of background noise that it picks up and also improves the overall quality.
- Several boom arms are cheap and work well with HyperX QuadCast such as the Blue Compass boom arm.
- After getting it on the boom arm, the most important thing is that it’s facing the right direction because this microphone can capture from multiple different directions but in an ideal world you should be talking into the front that’s where the logo is so roughly there where RGB lights are.
- Now, one of the other things to do is to make sure that it’s in cardioid mode, so you have a polar pattern selector on the rear and you want to select a cardioid that looks like a bottom or an upside-down heart. What it does is, makes sure that it picks up the sound from the front of the mic and minimizes any other sound from the surrounding areas.
- The next thing to do is go to the start menu
- Microsoft store
- and download HyperX’s ingenuity software. This is free software that you can get from the store download and install. After installing, launch it. This will check the firmware updates. Open the software
- Click on Settings in the bottom left
- check to make sure that you have the latest firmware.
If you don’t then you should see a prompt that’ll let you know that you need to download an update. After updating, you should be on the latest firmware.
Making the sound better is pretty easy. The HyperX is a sensitive mic that picks up a lot of surrounding noises, so just make sure you’re speaking into the mic and is close to your mouth.
