Help W/ Audio on Camtasia

4 replies

Can someone tell me how to clean up the noise on the audio for Camtasia?

I can record videos but would like to improve the audio quality.

I speak to the monitor as I am recording presently.

I have a USB microphone but don't know how to integrate it or if something else would be better.

Can someone lend a hand and help me out?

    There is a noise reduction feature in Camtasia Studio, but I rarely use it because speaking into my microphone is quite clear. The audio I did in this video was recorded real-time with no enhancement after the fact.

    What microphone are you using? That can make a huge difference, as does how it is positioned, room noise, and PC settings. I use something very close to this:

    and it does a fine job.

      I will have to do Camtasia recording very soon for the step by step method that I will use on my landing page video and its really important that it offers quality result. Thanks for sharing the heads up, guys.

    Personally I use the Samson C01U USB condenser mic and it does a fabulous job... It's completely plug and play.

    The mic cost me under $100 and I've had it for years now... it's the only mic I use and I'm extremely happy with it.

    I tried a lot of different mic's and headset mic's over the years and found my head was too big for the headset mics - they didn't pick up my voice properly... Since finding the condenser mic I have been spoiled...

      Don't be fooled into thinking the "automatically try to detect noise on timeline" will work. It's not the best way to go about removing noise.

      Many times you will have a consistant noise produced by either your mike, or a background noise such as a fan.

      Use the "manually select a region of audio" function, and stretch your timeline out to get the most accurate view of where you want to select the 'noise' from. Try to use a dead spot with no vocal, music, or intended sound.

      And whatever you do...get Audacity and learn that program. It's free...and it kicks butt.
