Take a look at the final project that will be discussed and deconstructed in this Camtasia 9 course focused on editing.
- [Instructor] Throughout this course we'll be deconstructing the audio interface project. All of the skills and concepts we'll be exploring are embedded in the project. We'll be pulling each one apart, looking at it from different angles and finding a way to make it work for you. If you have access to the exercise files, feel free to dive in and pick it apart. Let's give it a looksy. I'm going to show you how to use a field recorder as an audio input device with Camtasia. I've used this setup with condenser mics, broadcast headsets, the recorder stock mics and even wireless lavs, all with markedly improved audio compared with a standard USB headset.
Another nice feature of this setup is I can take advantage of the onboard recording tools like low cut, compression and limiting. I'll be working with the Zoom 86. If you have a different model, as long as it's able to function as an audio input device the steps are basically the same. First I need to install the driver. I'm going to head over to the Zoom downloads page and pick out the HF series ASIO driver. And install it. I'm going to connect my device with a USB cable, things seem to work better when you plug 'em in, and walk through the device set up steps to get it talking to my computer.
Next I need to make sure my Windows audio settings match up with Camtasia specs. I'm going to search for audio, choose manage audio devices. Then the recording tab, select Zoom recording mixer, properties, the advanced tab, and from the drop down I'm going to choose two channel, 16 bit, 441. And down here I want to make sure both of these boxes are checked.
And then okay my way out of here. Next I'm going to fire up Camtasia, and walk through the usual record setup. Choosing Zoom recording mixer as my microphone. As for setting the levels, I've had the best luck pushing the Camtasia input all the way to the top and adjusting my mic levels on the Zoom until I get a clean, strong, distortion free sound, that's it, I'm ready to record. This setup expands my recording options, provides clean, clear sound and I can easily pack up everything for projects on the go.
