    Recording Voice

    Editor Naama

      Hello all,


      Is it better to record voice on a DV camera or on the computer?

      What do you think about most simple small mini DV cameras + microphone for VO recording?


      Using a computer, is it better to have a sound card other than the on board one?(gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128423


      Here are the audio specs for the mobo:

      1. Realtek ALC889 codec
      2. High Definition Audio
      3. 2/4/5.1/7.1-channel
      4. Support for Dolby® Home Theater
      5. Support for S/PDIF In/Out
      6. Support for CD In


      Would that give good results?


      Often I read on this forum, recommendations stating the sound card is not needed for an editing system. What do you think about that regarding voice recording and simple sound editing?


      I read somewhere that a sound card (sound blaster) by creative is recommended, and somewhere else it was condemned. Would gladly hear your opinions.
