Can anyone show me the way on how to setup voice recording?
I am using Behringer MX602A, Realtek line in input, I have Audacity and Wavosaur installed, both support VST's, Wavosaur in real-time.
Microphone is crap cheap Panasonic, 'tis all I have for now, I will try to borrow Shure or AKG from work. For now, lot of hiss because very high gain is needed.

My question is, how to keep the almost same voice loudness throughout the recording? I know I have to try to talk almost the same volume all the time, but are there plugins which will do voice normalization? Free, preferably.

I am amateur in this, and I am trying to do fairytale reading, also will try recording guitar and vocal, so I would need reading on these subjects, too. Googling revealed nothing usable on these subjects. I was thinking first recording guitar, then voice, and mixing them in audacity. It doesn't need to sound professional, but I would like to learn about the process.

You give the first best answer right here:

Practice, practice, practice. I do a little of my own VO. and getting levels right is the easy part. Getting the proper emotion into the recording is far more important, not to mention far more difficult. No software product I know of will do that for you.

The second best answer is learn how to fix it in the mix - manually.

Resorting to software is the worst way out. If you want robotic results, use robots e.g. software.

If you want human results, use humans. If you want good results from humans, practice, practice, practice. Record/mix/listen repeat.
