Ensuring high quality sound is key to a good production, and DVE Store has the gear you need! Whether you are a beginner musician, podcaster, video creator, or record audio in any way, good audio is a very important part of your craft. Having unwanted sounds in the background - such as wind noise or environmental noises can cost you an entire production or even worse lots of money. Here are some tips & products to help you stay ahead of the game.


The Importance Of Audio

For Filmmakers: Films include different kinds of audio: voice, music, and sound effects. It is no surprise then that film makers are always on the look-out for the best audio possible. In film, sound tells a story and convinces the viewer on what is happening on-screen. It is important that there is harmony between visual and auditory senses for your film to be easily understood and felt by the viewer.

For Musicians: If you are a professional musician, you already know the importance of audio producing and how time consuming it can be. You have already spent a lifetime honing your musical craft, do you really want improper or incomplete audio recording compromising that?

For podcasters: It is important to record top notch audio THE FIRST TIME! No one wants to have to re-record an entire podcast simply because it’s difficult to hear, and if you have a guest, re-doing it simply may not be possible! Starting off on the right foot is your safest bet when podcasting, so you can focus on making great content!


Basic Audio Recording Tips

Before starting : Remember when first recording sound to consider your surroundings, and the potential background (or foreground) noise that could interfere with or even dominate the audio. For instance, refrigerators, electrical cables, shirts that may pick up static, or even furniture that may squeak if your talent moves: The microphone stand itself could be guilty if you aren’t using a shock mount, so it pays to pay attention!

Tips for microphone setups: Moving away and closer to the microphone may result in inconsistent audio.

Words with consonants such as "shhhh" pppppp" and "bbb" may result in popping of the microphone. Make sure you are positioning your microphone according to the mic you have purchased, & you may want to include a pop filter.

Record in a quiet environment: Unless that is the vibe you are looking for, make sure there are no outside noises like a loud highway or a loud crew while recording. Avoid recording in a room with echos as that may cause corrupted audio. High static areas may also interfere with audio signals. Remember: you can always add background noise to well-recorded audio, but it’s very difficult (sometimes impossible) to remove such noises from your track.
