What will be the best way to record the audio, does anybody have any actual experience on recording Skype conversations for projects? I have a set of headphones / mic from Maplins which plugs directly into my PC. In regards to software, I have software which records whatever audio is coming into the system - but is there anything a little more polished that anybody has used?<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p>Thank You for any help.&nbsp;</p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/recording-audio-skype-commentary#comments Audio Mon, 11 Jul 2016 12:00:47 +0000 DP2012 1056778 at http://www.dvforums.com College and News Radio audio assistance please http://www.dvforums.com/forums/college-and-news-radio-audio-assistance-please <p>I wonder if you can help.

Sadly I am not a professional and didn&#39;t realise that even though the video was looking fine, the loud music and close speakers would later destroy the audio&#39;s recording.</p> <p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/would-fixing-loud-and-distorted-audio-be-possible" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/would-fixing-loud-and-distorted-audio-be-possible#comments Audio Mon, 09 Nov 2015 17:42:53 +0000 NeLk 1056581 at http://www.dvforums.com MiniDV tape with no sound http://www.dvforums.com/forums/minidv-tape-no-sound <h3> <strong>The audio on my JVC MiniDV camcorder is not working.

However a minor issue we had this week has been a certain audio file that when rendered and finalised onto DVD the audio level has been very low when playing back. All other stuff has been fine except for this particular audio file. One suggestion has been that the &quot;fullness&quot; of the audio track hitting 0dB affects the Dolby set up to reduce the output level. A solution has been to reset the audio to work on MPEG 1 Layer 2 or even PCM and watch the audio levels manually.</p> <p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/mpeg-1-layer-2-or-dolby-digital-2-channel" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/mpeg-1-layer-2-or-dolby-digital-2-channel#comments Audio Wed, 26 Aug 2015 22:58:12 +0000 caryjoy 1056494 at http://www.dvforums.com Radio Mic frequencies for live sound http://www.dvforums.com/forums/radio-mic-frequencies-live-sound <p>Hi everyone,<br /> Can I ask for assistance from you audio experts on radio microphones, frequencies &amp; licencing.</p> <p>I look after the sound for a small Baptist chapel, and we have had for some years a 110V line amplifier, speakers and originally fixed mics. We then added a couple of Shure VHF radio mics, and 3 years ago replaced these with 2 Sennheiser Freeports (1 clip on &amp; 1 hand held). These were set for the unlicensed UK band (I was very careful not to use licenced frequencies without a licence, in fact some people thought I was overly paranoid about it).</p> <p><a href="http://www.dvforums.com/forums/radio-mic-frequencies-live-sound" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/radio-mic-frequencies-live-sound#comments Audio Thu, 20 Aug 2015 19:23:15 +0000 davemitch 1056489 at http://www.dvforums.com Suggestions for excellent studio headphones, please http://www.dvforums.com/forums/suggestions-excellent-studio-headphones-please <p>Yes, looking for suggestions for excellent studio headphones, please.</p> <p>Noise isolation isn&#39;t a big requirement, but comfort and accuracy are important. I prefer over the ear headphones to on-ear ones. I find the Sennheiser HD-25s I use when shooting aren&#39;t comfy for long editing sessions. I&#39;ve also a pair of DT-150s but likewise I don&#39;t find them comfortable to wear for long periods.</p> <p> Your suggestions welcome!</p> http://www.dvforums.com/forums/suggestions-excellent-studio-headphones-please#comments Audio Wed, 29 Jul 2015 13:39:13 +0000 Mark M 1056462 at http://www.dvforums.com
