Basics: Recording Audio In Your Environment
A key element of a great video is good audio. Having bad audio is the easiest way to lose your audience. Many people tolerate video glitches but are less likely to continue watching a video if it doesn't sound good.
Good audio starts with assessing the environment you're working in. This course addresses common sources of room noise that can ruin your audio. We also walk you through audio recording basics, recommendations on mic placement, and which types of microphones you might want to use and when.
