Sound Advice

This week’s e-learning challenge was all about how we record our audio. Being a musician, I thought this one would be right up my alley. The question and answer session starts now:

1. Tell us about your recording setup.
What type of microphone do you use? Do you record directly into your authoring tool, or do you record with a third-party application like Audacity? Do you record in your cubicle, or do you have a specific audio recording room?

I use an Audio Technical Special Edition AT4033. This mic is excellent for vocals and acoustic instruments. You get a nice crisp clean sound. I also have a screen attached to my mic stand to keep out the pops. Although this would be overkill for someone just doing narration, I just happen to have Cubase SX recording software. I like using Cubase because I can do VERY precise editing. I can also apply a noise gate, compression, and all sorts of effects if I want. My recording studio is also my office. There’s no sound proofing, just a rug on the tile floor to kill some of the natural reverb.
