I’ve recently moved to the worlds most echoey office.
From journeys in the MOOCosphere so far we know that learners really value good quality sound – so I was keen to test out what microphones I could possibly use next time we needed to record a soundtrack for a VideoScribe or Camtasia project.
- A Logitech web cam (this really shows how nasty the room is)
- A Plantronics dsp 400 USB mic
- A lapel mic I got with a digital recorder
- A Plantronics audio 300 USB mic
You can hear how I got on with this audio track
… and my conclusions – either of the USB headset microphones sounded just fine!
NB: I used Audacity (free) to create this track, saved the file on our streaming server (stream.ncl.ac.uk) and have inserted the track into the blog via the url.
