The first step in creating a great screencast is to capture the best quality audio you can, and that begins with selecting the right microphone for you. Learn how to make this critical purchasing decision.
- [Narrator] Before we go any further,…we need to take a few minutes and talk about microphones.…That brings us to my first rule…of creating great screen casts.…Never ever use the built in microphone…included on your Mac, especially if…you're recording on a laptop.…While it may be convenient to have…a built in microphone in your Mac,…the placement of that microphone…is not ideal for capturing your voice cleanly.…Yes, it does work in a pinch…and it will get you by, but you're going…to pick up a lot more of the noise…coming out of your computer.…
The pounding of your fingers on the keyboard.…The fan that's built into your computer.…Plus, your voice is not going to sound…as clear as it will with an external microphone.…If all you have is the built in mic,…then by all means it's better than nothing,…go ahead and use it.…But to really take your screen cast…into the next level, invest a little bit of money…and get a good quality external USB microphone.…These can be picked up for anywhere…from 30 to a couple of hundred dollars…
