Audacity +Best settings for recording speech
I'm currently working on doing a couple of short demos of Windows 8 using Camtasia studio. The problem I have is that the voice track is awful. Lots of noise, echoey voice etc. So I decided to record the voice track using Audacity, which has improved things...slightly. What can I do to improve the capture quality, or clean it up afterwards within Audacity? I've had a look at their forums and advice bounces around the place with nothing really being the answer I was looking for.
I'm capturing my voice using a Speedlink Medusa MX 5.1 headset mic which in normal operation works wonderfully, just not for this
Any help will be much appreciated as I've spent a day doing this now with no real joy and it's beginning to irk me.

I have to add that I have a Realtek HD audio chipset on my PC, not a seperate sound card. Could this be causing issues I wonder?

are you boosting the mic signal in the sound driver software as well and Audacity as it might be you are "overdriving" the signal and creating the hiss.

No. There are no boosting options set.

echoey voice might also be a sound effect which the realtek software can put on inputs had something like this before on realtek audio pc's but if everything is standard i doubt it is this

Well, I've just used Audacity on the office Mac, and it records wonderfully. I suspect it's the PC's Realtek Chipset. I'll do the voice track on here I think.
