Obtaining a good sound design for you videos is essential to make you video work. If your sound is bad, your video will be unwatchable. There are a few steps you can take when recording your footage, but in this tutorial we are going to explain how you can create a professional sound in post production. We are using the new Essential Sound panel from the latest Premiere Pro update to soundscape or video to perfection.
Before you start adjusting your sound in post production, there are a few things you can do to enhance your recording quality. The most obvious one is the right recording hardware. You’re not getting the same quality when you record your sound with your phone then with a microphone. Also the internal microphone from a camera is that good, we recommend an external microphone. We use the Rode VideoMicro, compact budget friendly microphone perfect for vlogging or recording ambient sounds. Another tip is creating the perfect environment for you recordings. When you are filming indoor, try to acoustically treat it to reduce echo and extra noise. If you want to sound proof your room, you can do this on a budget with our DIY Sound Panel Tutorial.
In our lives we are constantly flooded with sounds and images. Being a sound designer is paying attention to these sounds and taking advantage of the opportunities. You have constantly be scheming and searching for the best way to create soundscapes and experiment continually. The trick is to think outside the box and constantly be creative.
