How to Prevent Pops & Hisses

Right now we going to discuss the proper microphone technique that you can utilize to prevent a pop or general hiss sound in any karaoke performance.

For most folks, especially the ones new to a microphone it is natural to place a microphone generally right in front of one’s mouth. However what most doesn’t realize is that with today’s technology being so advance, the microphone has the ability to pick up sounds from any direction and is also therefore very sensitive to each and every sound that you may project as well.

With the above being said, it is strongly recommended moving the microphone further away from one’s mount, angling the mic to one side or lower, or angel it towards the establishment ceiling or roof thus allowing the microphone to become less sensitive and prevent any unwanted pops or hiss sounds during a performance.

However keep in mind, any of the above adjustments to the placement of microphone can also vary depending on the establishment general equipment settings, type, and overall quality.

Don’t Forget to Breathe

When you utilize a microphone effectively it cannot only hide a signer vocal stamina but can also enhance the overall performance. A prime example of this can be displayed through a common technique that is practiced in the karaoke industry.

This technique hides the singer inability to sustain breathing by holding the microphone far away when the singer voice is strong and powerful. Then the microphone is brought closer in as the vocal note loses volume and strength.

Overall the audience will never notice this minor technique, however they will think that the singer can maintain control, volume, and the overall strength of the note. Keep in mind though never to try and stretch a note beyond your comfort level.
