Get Your Audio Right with These Basic Techniques

So with everyone stuck inside, there has been a near overnight explosion in live streams. Big and small businesses are trying to get it right. Unfortunately, most have the video down but not the audio – and without great audio how valuable is your video?

Bad audio ruins good video.

Thanks to the folks at Audio-Technica, they’re offering a series of resources designed to help livestream newbies adjust to the circumstances brought about by the current health crisis, including blog posts and tutorials educating on best practices and ideal solutions for content creation and live-streaming, developing a home setup and more.

Since stay-at-home orders have essentially turned many into self-taught video producers, the “Basic Audio Techniques for Video” tutorial series on YouTube features 13 different videos covering the basics.
