- [Instructor] If you follow a few simple guidelines,…setting up a lavalier mic isn't hard.…The most important thing to keep in mind is placement.…Where you place the mic can have a profound effect…on sound quality.…Button up shirts and jackets work great.…Attach the mic at about sternum level.…It's okay if it's off center a bit.…Make sure the mic is pointed toward your subject's mouth.…T-shirts are my least favorite to work with,…but I've decent luck with placing the mic on the collar.…
It's a lot easier on a V-neck tee,…but regular tees will work as well.…Or if looks aren't a big issue,…attaching the lav directly on the T-shirt…at about the sternum will provide good sound.…It just looks a little wonky.…If you have a flat mic,…make sure the microphone is pointed out.…Otherwise you'll get muffled audio.…Also make sure that clothing…won't be rubbing on the mic.…This can make a really unpleasant sound.…Next, hide the cable as best you can.…
If possible, run it inside clothing…and out the back of a jacket,…the bottom of a shirt,…
