We are all spending a lot of time online these days. Many of us are also preparing and recording lectures. But how do you improve the quality of your sound when streaming and recording? In this demo-lecture, I will give an overview of microphones and present some tips to enhance your existing equipment's audio quality. I will also discuss some differences between setups for streaming and recording. Finally, I will give an overview of RITMO's resources for streaming and recording.
