Which Will Be The Best Sound Recorder For My YouTube Channel?

Postby Guest » Thu Jun 04, 2020 9:24 am

Zoom H1, H1n, and Tascam DR-5 Handheld recorders are the sound recorder which I used till now for making YouTube Videos and satisfied till last week. I do not know the issue but one thing for sure that my viewers complain about the sound which heard like an eco one.

I have to back on the track and make videos for my website and channel so that I can pay my bills. So here I came because I wanted to know that which is the best sound recorder for a middle-class guy who wanted to shoot videos for YouTube.

Thanks for having me here which I always wanted to ask but today I actually get the time. I do not know that I write related discussion here but I know that you guys will help me as soon as possible.

I'm not sure what you are asking for, but any of those three devices are capable of producing good quality audio.
Perhaps you have changed your workflow recently?
You might need to give more details of your gear, i.e. the microphone, the environment you are recording in etc.

If the problem is echo then I'm guessing you're in a room with no acoustic treatment. If so, you have two main solutions:
1) get very close to the microphone so that the primary signal is much louder than any room reflections, or
2) acoustically treat the room so that reflections are reduced.

Agree with Kwackman, seems more likely to be an issue with accidental misconfiguration more than equipment. If you have the same echo effect with all three recorders, it's something downstream in your recording chain (likely the computer). If you have changed recording room, it's likely the new room.

Just very remote possibility?

Look at Windows 'Volume Mixer' and mute any sources you don't actually need.

I have to mute 'Stereo Mix' on my living room desktop to kill an echo when listening to Radio3 through my hi fi.
