The following are the best option/settings for
2. Solo Recordings
3. Weekly episode with the *same* co-host.
Riverside is the most popular video/audio remote recording system for podcasters. Here are the best settings to prepare your show for us to post produce.
Click the gear icon top left:
“Record Only Audio” – Turn this ON if you don’t *need* video
“Use Noise Reduction” – Off
Turn Echo Cancellation Off – This prevents one person’s voice from muffling the other persons but requires that each mic can only hear the person using it and not the person on the other end, so no loud speakers to hear your guest, only earbuds (for a more technical explanation ask me in slack)
If you want high quality video, upgrade and update this to enable 1080p, if you are recording solo (or with the same remote co-host every week) see OBS below.
If you’re recording audio only you can record directly into Descript, if you want to record audio and video you have a couple of free local options, local means not over the internet and will always be better quality and no need to download files.
Quicktime is the perfect option to quickly and perfectly record your audio/video solo episodes and shorts etc.
For this option you and your co-host will both be recording Audio/Video locally in perfect quality then combining and syncing in Descript.
For this we use OBS (Open Broadcast Software) click here to download
After you install it and launch if for the first time, you’ll see this permissions page, be sure to grant access to Camera and Microphone
