WEBCAMS AND MICROPHONES

So how can you get started recording if you don't have any recording tools? If you're reading this from a modern laptop, you probably have the basic tools needed to get started.

Most laptop computers come with built in webcams these days. Simply find the webcam program on your laptop's desktop, open it and click the record button to get started. 

Most audio recording software will recognize your webcam's microphone.

If your computer doesn't have a built in webcam, or you would like a better one, check out the following links below. Most desktop computers don't have built in webcams.

NOTE: Even if you already have a built in webcam, it is still possible to add another one or a better microphone.

Also, most audio programs will automatically use your built in webcam unless you specify otherwise.

CREATING YOUR OWN STUDIO FOR MODEL WORK AND VIDEO

In addition to using your webcam to record audio, you can also think of it as a tool for creative modeling.

As an artist, the webcam can help build your image along with your music.

One way to have an instant backdrop is to use a black display board. Many are available for around $5.

WANNA RECORD THIS?

PORTABLE RECORDERS

 CAPTURE THE MAGIC OF THE MOMENT

Creativity does not fit nice, neat schedules. If you want to capture the spontaneity of the moment, we recommend using a portable recording device.

For the purpose of capturing a clear surround sound, we recommend the Zoom or the Olympus portable audio recorders.

The Zoom is a product capable of capturing sound from multiple directions.

Simply place the Zoom down on the ground and capture a three dimensional sound. This is great if you are trying to record your at home garage band.

The Olympus also carries a reliable line of products that we have been using over the years.

More expensive audio recorders will allow you to plug in a guitar directly.

RECORD WITH YOUR PHONE

If you can't afford to buy a portable recording device, but have a smart phone, you may want to explore the option of using your phone as a recording device.   There  are a number of programs.

Your phone may not have the same sound quality as the digital recorders mentioned above, but it can still get the job done.

For example: If you have an idea for a creative guitar riff at 3 in the morning, you can record it on your phone with the click of a button.

AUDIO SOFTWARE

WARNING: When downloading any kind of software from the internet, make sure you have a reliable firewall and virus detection program.

 AUDACITY (FREE SOFTWARE)

Okay, so you want to get a bit more technical, but you don't have a lot of money.

Audacity is one of the most prominent free audio software products today.

It is easy to use and contains a large number of audio effects.

The only problem with Audacity is that you can't automatically save a file as an MP3.

You have to download the encoder listed below to do this.

AVS AUDIO SOFTWARE

We ourselves have used AVS frequently for audio recordings.

The great thing about AVS products is that they are all part of a software suite that works together.

This includes video and photo editing programs as well.

The entire software suite includes 18 different products total. $59 for lifetime use, $39 for one year use.

These are the AVS products we recommend for the recording process.
