Wallup! this is Ben from Life in 360 What’s
up guys this is Ben from Life in 360 What’s up guys this is Ben from Life in 360 This
is Ben from Life in 360 I’m here in Melbourne today This is one of my favorite buildings
to shoot next to, the old St. Paul’s Cathedral. It’s absolutely stunning and the question
I’ve been getting a lot lately for my vlogs is “Ben, which sound set up do you use?” Something a lot of people don’t realize is
that when you watch a video, it’s not just video you’re watching. The video watching experience is 50% video,
50% audios so knowing how to record audio professionally goes a long way to producing
professional work. So if you are going to start using sound or
talking in your videos you will wanna consider umm using professional sound set up. So I’ll walk you through what I use for my
videos. Whenever I’m doing a vlog for example and
I’m on the go I need something small and compact so I use this Zoom H1 Recorder. It’s very light, compact, fits in your pocket. The moment it goes for under a hundred dollars
on Amazon, I’ll put a link down in the description but this is an excellent, excellent recorder
that will give you really professional sound. Then attached to the recorder, I have the
Rode Smartlav. So this is a little lapel mic. So normally I put the recorder in my pocket
and I put the lapel mic underneath my shirt and then I’ll just clip it on to my collar
there. And it’ll deliver incredibly clean sound every
time that is so much better than recording through the actual 360 cameras. 360 cameras are just not good for sound. Even though if someone do have special audio,
which is an awesome feature, umm it’s still just not enough. It’s not clear. You need something like this. I always use this when I’m recording 360 videos
so we use the Rode Smartlav. Again I’ll put that in the description, where
to where you”ll find it on Amazon. Again this is under a hundred dollars and
you will need an adapter for it because this mic is built for smartphones. So umm you plug this into your smartphone
and you can record sound however you will get much better quality if you plug it into
umm a sound recorder. This is the cheapest one I could possibly
find that does good way for quality. So I would recommend this one 1000%. Then when I’m back in Sydney I do use a slightly
different sound set up. I use the Rode Filmmaker Kit. I’ll put a link for that down in the description
as well. This is for more professional stuff, it’s
kind of the next level up. And I use it to record alongside my Sony A702. It plugs right into my camera and it is just
really good professional solution, this is more on the go. So I would recommend these three and get them
on Amazon for under $200. And really it makes the world of difference. Let’s just compare the two right now. So this is what I sound like talking into
the microphone and this is what it sounds like with smartphones’s sound. And I’m using my Iphone7 TL. And it records quite decent sound but compared
to this, you’re going to give your viewers a much more pleasant experience and they’re
actually much more likely to watch the end of your video if the audio is professionally
recorded. So I would highly recommend if you are looking
to take your video productions skills to the very next level and produce professional content,
you will wanna invest in a proper sound set-up. This is why I’ve been able to grow my YouTube
channel quite quickly because I’ve produced firstly professional video but also professional
sound. Because it just creates that professional
look that it gets people coming back. So yeah, again I’ll put the links to all these
things down in the description so you might wanna check them out. Look what just arrived in the mail, I got
myself a second set of this sound set-up. I’m finding more and more that I’m needing
a second microphone in my videos now that I’m doing more vlogs and interviewing people. So I thought I would get myself a second pair. Then I found the same recorder, the white
version is on sale on Amazon so I picked up the second one, excellent. Looks good, nice and clean. It’s a nice little device, fits in your pocket. I really like it. Looks good. Then we have the SmartLav. So this is built for smartphones. You can use this with your smartphone if you
don’t know the road up. Let’s have a look. There it comes the nice, little bag, instructions
and there it is! Nice, nice and little clip in there. Okay we are in business and then finally we
have the adapter which combines the two. And I fucked it. I’m not gonna reuse this box anyway. Raaaarrr!!! And here it is. In terms of the post production workflow,
it’s really simple. You just insert the micro SD card from here
into your computer , back up the file and then drag it on to your timeline whichever
editor you’re using. Personally I use Premiere and there are tools
to help you sync it up like PluralEyes. You will probably have to buy them but Premiere
obviously can do that manually and doesn’t take that long. And Premiere does have syncing tools that
will save you hours of frustration and wanting to put a fist through your computer screen. Alright guys I hope this was helpful, don’t
forget to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and Twitter for more video tips as
well as obviously 360. But essentially my background is as, is as
a filmmaker and a lot of the stuff I learned in film school, I’m still applying to 360. Stuffs like cinematography and sound recording
cause it does still cross over. So learning how to produce professional videos
will actually help you with your 360 video and photo production. Alright guys until next time. Keep capturing your world in 360. See you in the next video.
