Let’s Edit with Media Composer – ADVANCED – Recording Voice Overs

I get a lot of tutorial ideas from questions that are sent to me via e-mail, as well as questions that I see asked via The Avid Editors of Facebook page, and there was one that caught my eye a little while ago, and it was about how to go about recording voice overs from an external USB microphone, directly into Media Composer to either have it as a clip that you can drop into your timeline, or as a direct to timeline record, almost like a commentary for a DVD or Blu-Ray.  Well, this lesson focuses on that, and if you work on longer format productions, this tutorial should really help you out!

Whether you’re going to be recording tons of dialogue for a documentary, or you’d like to record voice over to something you have in your timeline, the process is pretty straight forward, once you know the tools you need to use.

Which version of MC are you using in this video? We are having trouble getting Avid to recognise the USB mic – it doesn’t show up in the audio input tab as an option, even though the PC knows it’s plugged in.
