    The ATD-GTC Training Community of Practice Presents

    Delivering Professional Audio on a Budget

    You've probably heard it before: "Recording good audio is tough." And it's even tougher to do on a budget. Professional-level equipment can be expensive and there are a lot of options. Plus, after you record, what tools should you use to edit and share? All of this can be overwhelming and it's easy to overspend.

    Join the discussion on equipment, editing, common pain points, and the three lowest-cost contributors to recording quality audio:

    • The top three lowest-cost contributors to quality audio recording: Does professional quality audio for eLearning and video need to cost a fortune? We'll discuss the greatest factors that contribute to a high-quality audio recording that you can put into effect today for little-to-no cost.
    • The best equipment for the task at hand: Microphones? Digital audio workstations? Accessories? We'll discuss what you (actually) need to buy and when should you use it.
    • The basics of audio editing: What basic software editing tools or features should you be using to create clear, consistent, professional audio? We'll discuss a variety of functions available in almost all software editing tools, and concepts around how best to use them.
    • Your greatest challenges: What are your pain points or challenges when recording or editing audio.

    Presenter: Tyler Jaax, Lead Documentation & Training Specialist

    Questar, Inc.
