Hope this helps,
Soundbooth is also a great way to go. Intuitive and fast. Lots of eq filters that are simple to understand. Make a wav file which you then import into Pr.
If you do this somewhat frequently, it is worth to invest in a good condenser studio mic and use something like the http://www.samsontech.com/products/productpage.cfm?prodid=1901
Great sound, easily transferred and inserted into your project. Like this:
I have seen the unit H4-Handy Recorder
Ok,, let say I have a 1 hour Video, and I need to add 1 hour of my sound into that video, It seems like with this unit, I have to download all the sounds into my Timeline, and later adjust where I want each sounds to appear in my Movie, Am I correct ?
But with the Microphone, i am adding the sound Manually into my Timeline, because it is done at the same time. Am I correct or Not ?
There are various ways to do it. My preferred method with documentary style movies is to have the voice over lead the images. So you adjust the length of a scene to follow the voice over, not the other way around. If you follow that route, you just record your one hour voice over as one file, import it and put it in the time line. Of course, you will have instances where noise from outside (a passing truck with a defect exhaust for instance) will ruin the recording of a sentence, so you have to do that sentence over and cut out the ruined one. But that is pretty straightforward.
The alternative is to record to separate files that you import and drag to the correct location.
Whichever way you choose, it is beneficial to use either a teleprompter or read out from a printed script, as shown in the picture. You will have much better sound than doing it manually, because you can make your voice over in a very silent room and not have background noise from a computer running in the background.
Interesting the H-4 Handy Recorder. I might get one sometime. Here are some reviews on Amazon about that product that might be helpful to others:
