Quick Solution to Mic Static and Noise While Recording

The main issue with recording on a PC or Laptop is the great amount of static and noise in the background, even if a decent microphone is being used. The fix is a quick and easy one and can cost less than $20. Basically, all you need is any USB sound card of decent quality. Try to stick to known brands such as Creative and stay away from the $5 ones on eBay. Also, a decent mic would help but that will only increase the quality of the recording and not so much the decrease background annoyances not due to actual background noise present in the room. It turns out that my motherboard makes a lot of static and noise when using the internal mic inputs and just by using a USB sound card, a huge difference was instantly noticeable. It seems that by isolating the A/D converter from the rest of the components, I was able to now record clean, static free sound. Check out the video below for some details about the sound card I used.
