Audio Resources/Advice and Help
An introductory guide to recording an audio podcast on a computer with a microphone and free open-source software. This advice document will help users with little or no experience of recording audio to record their voice onto their computer using free software and simple peripherals. It then covers basic processing and editing of their recording and mastering it to a final format - in this case MP3. Simple instructions are then given for delivering this recording as a podcast through an institution's VLE and for archiving projects.

JISC Digital Media Older | Newer By Zak Mensah on Monday 11 April 2011 We are always keen to see other peoples set-ups and as fans of the show this is particularly exciting. Seeing other people's set-ups and approaches to production is a great way to guage potential new workflows and identify kit that may suit your needs. Dan Benjamins guide features excellent advice on choosing equipment, such as which microphones work best in noisy environments, and which microphone stand to choose, all based on experience rather than simply on cost and features, and he comfortably explains the compatibility of different bits of equipment. Through the podcasts we have produced here at JISC Digital Media, I can't be as enthusiatc as him about the Rode Podcaster Microphone.

Audio: Microphone Guide This guide looks at some of the different types of microphone you may encounter, and gives an introduction to some of the features which may help you choose the right type for your needs, and the techniques you can use to get the best from them. Types of Microphone Microphones are normally categorised by two characteristics, the type of transducer (i.e. the way sound is converted into an electrical signal) and the direction from which they capture sound (the 'pickup pattern’). Microphones most commonly use two types of transducer, dynamic and condenser. Dynamic microphones do not require power and are generally less expensive and more robust than condenser microphones.
