Sound recording 101

Home Recording Studio has 6 easy to follow tutorials for making classier sound recordings than you normally do. It was going to be my project this year to get better sound recordings in class. I am half way through the year and I have done some sound recording work with students which they really enjoyed. I still haven’t set up my recording equipment at home , though, so I can improve my skills and knowledge. This video is where I am up to. I have all the equipment and as I was putting it all together today I realised I cannot connect the mixer to my computer to record. I don’t have a lead. I now need to work out which lead. When I put myself into learning something I am clueless about I do it one step at a time and make sure I know what I am doing before I go to the next step. I have all the other leads, some nice microphones, a sound mixing board, a microphone stand and I do have headphones with a mike as back up but the sound quality won’t be as good as when I finally get this all sorted! One more cable. When I learn this way I can see I have come a long way because I now have some idea of what I am talking about and realise I could have made some better decisions along the way. That doesn’t worry me. The fact I now know this has made it a worthwhile journey. I have some very good video software, a good computer and now some good sound equipment. It has not cost me a fortune. I have also had a good chance to look at “how to” videos. This guy is good because he is not too fast, not too slow, has pictures, information and best of all he explains why you should be doing something . He is even better he gives you a chance to choose. Hate the word empowering, but his videos have the added benefit of empowering you with some knowledge so you will choose one thing above something else. This means you are engaged in the process of learning. So, shopping trip for me to get my last cable and I am glad I have come this far. It has made me very aware when I am teaching not to take anything for granted and to support my content with sound, images and good explanations.
