When was the last time you upgraded your equipment / software?

Hey there fellow content creators and educators,

 

I'm always looking to improve the quality of my courses and part of that is making improvements to my equipment or software.

 

I was wondering how many of you do the same thing? 

 

I've just invested in a new wireless mic system - the Rode Go Compact Wireless Microphone System - I move about a fair bit while presenting and keep getting tangled in wires so I wanted something wireless with excellent audio quality. This Rode system certainyl provides that and I'm super happy with the upgrade!

 

Do you have a consistent drive to upgrade and improve and of so what was your last upgrade?

@GrahamNicholls  The day before yesterday I have placed order for Audio Technica ATR 2100 USB mic with arm stand on Amazon. Hoping to get by Tuesday.

Right now I am having Samson Go mic but its very hard to record when there is some noise in background so I am going to try ATR 2100.

I just found a great app for audio recording. It works for voice over which is the majority of what I do. It is called Krisp. It is a noise filter. While programs like OBS allow you to select noise and filter it out this does a better job. It will even hide someone talking outside.

Yes, not all the time, but whenever it makes sense.

Ordered this, not arrived yet.

Early on I got new stuff to significantly improve quality, now it is more how can I make the process easier (minor quality upgrades as bonus).

Now that I'm happy with my setup, I don't want to change anything. The reason is that if I add new videos to an older course, it's a bit awkward to have the AV quality suddenly change for one video.

Just bought a new mic from amazon. My voice is clear now and I record with my phone which makes the task super easy!

I also record onto my phone and I use it as a camera. I found it gives me the best audio and visual results. Like you say, it also makes life easier!

Hi Graham, I just did a major update for my camera, till now I shot with a Logitech webcam and I have to say it did a great job but now I wanted to change with something more professional and I bought a mirrorless Sony A6500. It should arrive in some days and I'm pretty excited about it! Smiley Very Happy

I tried to get everything right by researching but I made one mistake. My tripod wasn't tall enough. I had to stand it on cat food boxes! Now I have bought another tripod. It is a joyous thing!
