Figuring out the best use of my limited space to record vocals!

Hey yall! Very new to all recording but I wanted to make a little area in my room for recording vocals, but I'm not sure what my best options are! I made a little video to show what I'm working with specifically, but I've been doing research and some people say use your closet but others say dont if it's too small, and I just want to hear any opinions on where to go from here. I cant spend much more than I already have but can make some small purchases if it would make a significant difference. All advice is appreciated!

Izotope Ozone 9 lets you re-balance vocals in stereo mix.

This is a great new feature! Something i think we have been wishing for, for a long time. Adjust vocals, drums, and bass individually, right from the stereo mix! I skipped the upgrade from ozone 7 to 8, but did take advantage of intro pricing on 9, mainly for this feature. Check it out, seems to work very transparently. Between this, and superior drummer 3s ability to extract individual drums (and midi) from a stereo drum track, things are getting quite cool. We can now evade commitment even further in the process lol. Finally moving passed just emulations of great analog gear.

delay is picking up previous vocals

Hi! i am trying to use the WavesH delay on a couple single lyric words in pro tools, i have the half bar delay on a bus track and am feeding the audio into the aux by automation but when i feed in the audio for the one word i want delayed, it has all the previous lyrics also flooding in. is there a way to only activate the h delay plugin when i tell it to? how can i just have the single word be delayed? thank you

Vocals aren't clear, how to fix them?

First post for critique. I was told the vocals weren't clear enough, so I'm wondering if I fixed that.
This is kind of a weird peace that started as a folk-ish tune, but turned to "something" else entirely. I got to messing around with Uhe's Tyrell and Zebralette and a few ideas came out. Sort of new for me since I'm not very much a synth kinda guy, but at the same time, I'm pretty opened minded about music. I think my eclectic taste is to my detriment sometimes.
I sing and play everything except the chorus vocals, which were done by a friend of mine.

Blue Spark vs. MLX 990s for home recording (acoustic & vocals)

hey all. visiting family & planning on doing a little recording with my niece. the only mic i've ever really owned is a studio b1 from like 2002. it died on me & i need to get one really quick and don't want to spend more than $100. I know...not much.

Guitar Center has a MXL 990s Patriot Edition for $55 brand new, but someone in the area has a blue spark for that they'd sell me for $75 that is new too.

Market Price on the Spark is $100 more than the MXL, so I'm guessing it's worth the extra 20 to get the Spark?
