SHOW PREP NOTES

I’m excited to chat with you! Here are a few notes to ensure that we get the highest quality recording.

1. Backup Recording

It’s always great to have a backup of the recording. While 99% of the time it’s not needed, it will help cover for times when the internet connection might lag or a file becomes corrupt.

I’ll remind you to record your side before we get started, but please practice in advance. It’s super easy.

On A Mac

  1. Open QuickTime Player and go to File > New Audio Recording
  2. Click the tiny arrow next to the record button and select the microphone you will be using and Quality = Maximum.
  3. Drag the volume slider all the way to the left (off)

On A PC

  1. Search for Voice Recorder from your apps (or Sound Recorder before Windows 10).
  2. Click the big blue button to record.

When complete, please save your file as [your-last-name]-guest.

2. Improving Audio Quality

Wear Headphones

Headphones will help reduce feedback and echoing. Headphones with a built-in mic often work great, just be careful with excessive movement as they will pick up the harsh sound of the microphone rubbing against your clothing.

Record from a Quiet Place

Whenever possible, try to find a quiet place for the recording.

 

Other Helpful Things

  • Pause Dropbox and other cloud syncing services
  • Connect via Ethernet right into the modem or router (when possible)
  • Use a mic other than the one built-in to the computer
  • Restart your computer and click on the Zoom link in the calendar invite right before our call
