  • Connect your headphones directly to the computer instead of to the interface to minimize any echo.
  • Speak directly into the mic and position it about 3 to 6 inches (2.54 to 15 cm) away from your mouth.


  • The SM7B needs more gain than what most entry-level or mid-tier preamps and audio interfaces can deliver. Connect an inline boost amplifier if your preamp does not have more than 60 dB of gain.
