Guidelines for Good Recordings

Use a quality microphone

Pick a quiet place with little background noise or disturbances.  Both recorder and 'talent' should remove all accessories which may interfere with the recordings (ex. jewelry, keys, phones).


Depending on the pronunciation of the 'talent' you may need to adjust the position of the recorder. Generally, a 45 degree angle downwards from the mouth works well. Additionally, a 1 inch gap between the mouth and the recorder is recommended.
