Presentation Recording Tips

The rest of the show was dedicated to audio and presentation quality tips from all of us. The jumping-off point was Anthony Nocentino’s post on his recording setup, which led me to pester him a bit and then buy the same stuff he has (though no amount of audio quality will give me Anthony’s dulcet tones!). Solomon also asked a very similar question right before the show started, so we spent a lot of time talking about audio, using OBS Studio, video editing products like Camtasia, and a detailed discussion on different levels of quality and roughly how much they cost. The most important takeaway is that you can create good presentations without spending a lot of money on professional-level gear. That stuff is for people who make a living (or a serious part of their total income) creating recorded content. Otherwise, you can sound great with a $50-100 microphone.
