What You’ll Learn

In this comprehensive course that includes over two hours of video instruction, you'll gain a solid understanding of recording audio in video projects. Audio expert Dave Bode will teach you everything from the fundamentals of placing the mic and getting audio into the camera right through to the details of level setting, AGC and limiting, and monitoring your audio in the field.

He'll also give you a comprehensive guide to the gear you'll need, the different kinds of microphones and accessories you can choose from, and how each of them works.

By the end of this course, you'll know how to record great audio without losing focus on what's happening around you or the picture in front of you.
