#2: Important audio and video tips!

Play Video

To help you do lots of great business and have your appearance generate a huge impact, this is email two of five valuable videos and resources that will help you increase the impact of your podcast & video guest appearance.

In today’s video, I outline all the equipment and software I use for audio and video. It took me time to get my setup right, so learn from my mistakes. Please don’t forget to watch yesterday’s video if you haven’t done so yet.

There are four mics I personally love and the company I prefer doing business with since they are audio experts and will help customize each setup to best suit you. Each can be connected via USB or XLR, but your sound will be better when connected through XLR. Each can either be on your desk or on a boom, some come as a pack with headphones and boom, and some you’ll want to buy and customize yourself. I don’t get kickbacks; I just prefer patronizing smaller, boutique companies like my own.

One final thing to consider, which an expert can help guide you through is:

Dynamic vs Condenser

Dynamic microphones are less sensitive than condensers, making them a great choice when recording multiple people in the same room or if you don’t have a quiet recording area. You will usually need to be very close to the mic as well. Live performers commonly use dynamic mics so they don’t pick up the other instruments as well.

Condenser microphones are more sensitive and precise, making them a great choice when recording solo in a quiet environment. They require external or “phantom” power, which most decent digital audio interfaces have, but it’s something to be aware of.
