This guide will cover Elgato Wave DX and how to get the best sound.
Table of Content
Speak into the end of Wave DX and keep a distance of approximately 8-12 cm | 3-5 in for optimal voice capture.
Recommended Microphone Gain (dB)
Try starting with 45 dB Gain and adjust from there.
If you’re used to using a condenser mic, don’t be surprised if you need to raise the gain a bit to sound as loud as you did before.
Audio Effects — Equalizer, Noise Gate, Noise Removal
We recommend using Audio Effects (VSTs) alongside Wave DX to get the best sound quality. Elgato has some available at https://elgato.com/downloads.
