I have followed Mike’s guides on Youtube for setting up a DBX286S, installing VST plugins for OBS and I do not get the voice characteristic I am looking for that many Twitch or Podcasters have.
For reference this is what I have in my chain at the moment which I feel sounds too dull, nasal and immature which I really hate when I hear myself or watching playbacks.
- Rode Procaster with official windshield / pop filter
- Triton Fethead
- DBX 286S
- Zoom UAC2
- Asus STX Soundcard
- Windows 10 PC

Mike’s voice and other podcasters/streamers have sparkle whilst retaining warmth and punch, dynamic range, colourful, presence etc which I am trying to achieve.
I have recorded some examples of my voice
Local straight to Audacity
I am at my wits end that I think that a new microphone may help but it’s some serious investment. A mic recommended on Audio forums is the Warbler mkIV, Shure SM7b, EV-RE320 but if my voice just sounds lifeless and there is no magic fix then I guess I am stuck with what I was born with. cries
Would a Spectragraph or analysis of my voice put into Audacity help reduce the voice signature that bothers me? If so what would I look for and what should I fiddle around with in OBS’s VST ReaEQ plugin. If a new mic does help what sound signature do I look for? The Procaster iirc has low end + punchy sound signature.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
