This tutorial is about getting good audio levels. I’m using a Zoom H4n audio recorder but that isn’t as important as the concept behind using your meters to help you record good quality audio to tape.
Let me know if you have any questions in the comments section below or via the Vimeo channel.
Another tutorial for you… and by you, I understand that I am targeting a very narrow audience here. Not many people even know what VCDs were, much less do they care about converting them to other formats. But, for any of us who have spent time outside of America in the late 90s, early 2000′s, VCDs were the easiest way to make your own digital video disc because DVD recordable media was expensive and not everyone had a DVD burner like we do now (if we even have optical drives anymore!).
So, this tutorial is for the 3 people who want to know how to convert a VCD to an MP4.
You’ll need an optical drive and MPEG Streamclip (free software download by clicking on the link).
As a part of my new tutorials series, here’s one on getting more out of your Mac OS X trackpad – whether the built-in trackpad on your laptop or a wireless bluetooth trackpad, the same principles apply.
