Seeing many music shows and future music stars made me do this post.
Many of you don’t know the power of your smartphone or tablet.
You don’t have to have a very expensive equipment to record the perfect audio or song.
I bet you are reading this on your smartphone.
Well, you are holding your equipment in your hands right now.
Don’t worry, I’m going to share few tips how you can take the best of it.
Let’s jump in:
Eliminate the distractions
You have lots of applications that will distract you from recording the perfect audio.
All those notifications and messages can ruin everything.
Recording an audio for your next song is a serious thing so make sure you turned off the phone and messaging capabilities before you start recording.
Configure your smartphone/tablet
Most of the times these fancy new smartphones come with the lowest quality factory settings for recording.
That’s because they are made to save space.
Don’t worry about space because you are going to transfer everything on your computer.
Increase the recording quality and you can always compress it during post-production.
There are applications that come equipped with set-for-recording settings.
Calculate your surroundings
Every room gives you different surrounding.
It’s very easy to hear those little sounds created by something in your room.
Take short audio recording just to sample all the sounds in the room.
That way you will become aware of all of them after you listen to the recording.
This advance care can take you on the right way.
Almost every smartphone or tablet comes with an output jack.
Although all devices have their own microphones, the external one will give you more quality.
These microphones come with sensitivity control that will give you more flexibility for making great recordings.
Use tape in loud environments
Yeah, you heard me right.
When you have to record in a loud event, the sound might get ruined from the surrounding.
Using a bit of tape and placing it over the smartphone’s microphone will mute the input and record sounds that will be beyond the sensitivity range of the microphone.
It’s important for you to know that different kinds of tape will give you different results.
Now… when we know all the tips we need to record a song, let’s see the apps that could make the process easier.
