Default Shurre MV51 microphone

Hi, I bought this one, but for some reason I can't get the best sound from it. I use a guitar with the recommended distance. I think its the DAW i use most likely. I only can afford a free DAW

Anyone knows this micro? Any advice?

Choose a Quality Free DAW:

While you're limited to a free DAW, there are some excellent options available. Audacity, Ardour, and Cakewalk by BandLab are popular choices. Make sure you are using the latest version of the DAW for potential bug fixes and improvements.
Microphone Placement:

Ensure your microphone is positioned correctly. Experiment with different angles and distances to find the sweet spot for your particular microphone and instrument. Follow any guidelines provided in the microphone's user manual.
Room Acoustics:

Consider the acoustics of the room where you are recording. Minimize background noise, and if possible, use acoustic treatment like foam panels or blankets to reduce reflections.
Use the Right Input:

Check that you are using the correct input on your audio interface or sound card. Some devices have multiple inputs, so make sure you have the right one selected.
Adjust Input Levels:

Set the input levels on your audio interface or within the DAW. Avoid input levels that are too low (resulting in a weak signal) or too high (causing distortion).
Check DAW Settings:

Review the settings within your free DAW. Ensure that the input source is correctly selected, and the recording settings match your microphone's specifications.
Experiment with EQ and Compression:

Even in free DAWs, you can often find basic EQ and compression tools. Experiment with these to enhance the tone of your guitar recording. Start with subtle adjustments and listen for improvements.
Learn Basic Mixing Techniques:

Familiarize yourself with basic mixing techniques. Adjusting levels, panning, and applying simple effects can make a significant difference in the overall sound quality of your recordings.
Explore Free VST Plugins:

Look for free virtual instrument plugins (VSTs) and effects that complement your recording. There are many free options available that can add depth and character to your guitar sound.
Community Support:

Join online forums or communities related to your specific DAW. Users often share tips and tricks that can help you optimize your recording setup within the constraints of a free DAW.
