How to do commentary for video game videos / Let’s plays, recording, gear and post production for beginners

Today we have guest post from Beranie from Pred and Beranie, enjoy!

Hello dear readers of Sunesha’s cool blog of coolness,

My name is Beranie and I thought I’d share a video guide that I’ve made recently here with you.It’s a basic step by step instruction on how to record good clean usable audio when doing Let’s Play or any kind of commentary audio, spending as little money as possible.

I go over the gear first, obviously you need a microphone, but it doesn’t end there. You’ll need a boom stand also, aaaand a pop filter. The latter two can be built yourselvesif you have a knack for DIY’ing and the right materials. RL crafting so to speak.

Then you’ll need the right software and the know how to use it to record your signal. And when you’re done recording it’s time for the most fun part! POST PROCESSING! I’ll show you how to use a simple one band EQ (high pass filter or HPF) to cut out undesirable low frequencies and slap a decently set up compressor on that sweet signal of yours.

Have fun.
PS. I’m bad at math, BTW 😛 DS
