I’ve been thinking about getting this lavalier mic: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/650292-REG/Sanken_COS_11D_BK_COS_11D_Miniature_Omnidirectional_Lavalier.html

But then, I guess I’d also need to get a XLR -USB connector to hook it up to my laptop.

Did you use any bad language? It might have been deleted for that reason.

You also might email the editor – psd[at]tutsplus.com – to sort out the issue.

Hey guys!

I help out around Envato, and am the editor of Nettuts+. I was wondering if I could steal a bit of your collective knowledge. While my question is not specifically related to music, it does concern the process of recording audio.

On to my question: I’m now recording visual intros for the screencasts that we post on Nettuts+. I generally record about five feet from my DSLR . What I’ve been finding, though, is that, in my recording room, the sound quality of my voice is less than optimal. I get a touch of echo, and my voice sounds like it’s a bit too far from the mic.

I’m using an Audiotechnica 2020 condenser mic that sits about a foot above my face. That way, it doesn’t show up on camera.

Do you guys have any advice on how I can get a more professional sounding result? Should I use a lavalier in order to get my mouth closer to the mic? Are there any software plugins that I could put the audio through to help boost and improve my voice?

All advice is immensely appreciated. :D

Yeah – that’s referencing the Marketing category on ThemeForest: http://themeforest.net/category/marketing

When it comes to the photos used in demos, authors must obtain permission from the creators. In terms of movie photos, my best guess is that authors have not done so. When it’s free promotion for the studios, they generally don’t say anything—but that’s still a bad way to run your theme business. Better to always use photos which you have permission to use. :)

I don’t think you’ll have anything to worry about. The bigger concern, in my experience, is going in reverse. You should be good. :)

Definitely a good idea. It’s been on the agenda for a while now. There’s much more important things on the docket, but hopefully, a feature like that isn’t too far off.
