Welcome to the Indestructible PR Podcast with Molly McPherson Greenroom!
We’re excited to have you on the show, and we want to ensure that your experience is smooth and enjoyable. To help you prepare for your interview, we’ve put together some tips and best practices for recording using Riverside. Following these guidelines will ensure a high-quality recording that showcases your insights and expertise.
1. Review our equipment guide:
Make sure you have the right microphone, camera, or other input device for the best possible recording quality.
2. Adjust your computer’s microphone sensitivity:
This can help ensure clear audio during the interview.
3. Test your internet connection:
A stable connection is crucial for a seamless recording. Test your connection here.
4. Use a supported browser:
Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge are currently the recommended browsers for Riverside.
5. Close unnecessary tabs and application:
This will help reduce any potential interference with the recording.
6. Disable VPNs, browser extension, content blocker, and firewalls:
This can sometimes cause issues with recording quality.
7. Test screen sharing:
If you plan to share your screen during the interview, test this feature in the Riverside Studio before the recording begins.
1. Wear headphones:
This helps prevent echo and improves overall audio quality.
2. Use an external microphone:
External microphones provide better sound quality than built-in mics.
3. Choose a well-lit space:
Record in a room with daylight or a lamp in front of you to ensure proper lighting.
4. Position the strongest light source in front of you:
Avoid having bright lights behind you.
IMPORTANT: Remember that your locally recorded track will be higher quality than what you see and hear during the live call.
Wait for the upload to complete: Keep the Riverside browser window open until you see “Upload Complete” or “100% Uploaded.” This ensures that your recording is saved properly.
