Everyone knows that person who has a heavy footstep, a booming laugh, or talks way too loud, and it always seems to be magnified when recording audio. Often you’re working in less-than-ideal environments, trying to make the best of what you’ve got, and you don’t always have time or tools for editing. When you don’t have a professional studio to record audio, the struggle is very real.

Did you hear that? Didn’t think so. In this session, you will learn techniques to help turn a less-than-ideal recording situation into something more manageable. From setting up equipment to final publishing, a few simple steps can improve audio recording quality. On the other hand, if you are next to a busy road with sirens and horns going off almost hourly, editing is a must. Don’t feel pressured to re-record! With a few clicks, that wailing siren can be quieted or removed altogether—all without a recording studio.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to calibrate a microphone so it only records what you want it to
  • How to address some of the most common recording challenges, like the “pop” you get at the “p” and “th” sounds
  • Considerations in setting up your recording space
  • How to edit audio and remove ambient noise


Designers, developers, and managers.

Technology discussed in this session:

Laptops, microphones, Adobe Audition, and Audacity.
