My Mic is working, now I'm wondering what's the best way to tune it or are there recommended general settings for best audio? I'm new in the podcast realm. Thanks!

What mike are you using? What software are you using?

Every voice is different so EQ and compression is really dependent on the individual. Getting a good clean signal is the most important step—don't overdrive the preamp, yet don't be so quiet that the noise is louder than the voice. The best way to get a strong signal is to keep the mike close to the spaekers mouth—eat the mike. We are conditioned to like the sound of close miking. It sounds fuller and has less environmental noise and reverb which can lessen intelligibility.
