Tip: By following these steps you’ll soon become a MyVoiceCloud ninja.
Our main goal at MyVoiceCloud is to create the fastest, most advanced audio enhancement recording service that is out there.
To achieve this, we make sure it is based on the latest technology available.
Here are the system requirements you need in order to use MyVoiceCloud.
(If you are not sure whether or not your computer or phone support this, contact support).
All the latest versions of mostly used web browsers for Mobile and Desktops does support MyVoiceCloud. The ONLY exceptions we know of is Google Chrome on iOS, Microsoft IE and Opera Mini, which are not supported.
If you’re on a Android Mobile, you’re free to go fully in with any browser.
On an Apple iOS device you’ll stick to the Safari browser to rock’n’roll.
When recording from your desktop we highly recommend to use an external professional microphone. As an alternative the microphone on your headphones can be used as you can position the mic using your hand to move it into an ideal position in front of your mouth.
All mobile microphones will make a decent recording as well.
Try to make your way to the best result by doing a couple of takes and compare.
Headphones must be used at all times when recording with MyVoiceCloud. We give you the opportunity to listen to the background audio meanwhile you’re recording your voice, if headphones are not used the audio will bleed into the recording and create phase issue and unwanted artifacts. And you don’t want that, neither do we. So please use headphones while recording.
For best result, pick your spot carefully. Choose your conditions carefully from a calm and quiet perspective and an acoustic ideal. The latter meaning a room or space where the background noise is low and the reverberant is shorter. Bluntly laid out; a toilet or a bathroom full of glazed tiles is probably a very bad choice of space to make a good recording compared to your bedroom.
This advanced audio enhancement recording service has a powerful audio engine which demands high quality audio tracks to process data accordingly to provide an excellent end result, every time.
To give you the best of experience the audio you upload to any product at MyVoiceCloud has to be at least:
Resolution: 16 bit or higher (preferably 24 bit)
Sample Rate: 44100 Hz or higher

Hit STOP once you’re done recording and the session will start processing for you. This might take a couple of seconds depending on the length of the recording.
Wait for the processing
A new button appears saying “Wait While Saving…”.
What’s happening is that your recorded voice is shaped to fit the background audio. We do some careful adjustments including cleaning out background noise from your environment, equalizing low rumbles and harsh frequencies, slightly compression and levelling the volume level.
Once everything uploaded and mixed the button gets active and says “GO TO LIST”.
Click on GO TO LIST to see your recordings and start listening to your new masterpiece.
