The importance of audio quality is easily overlooked. Most people who watch content on their phones don’t take audio fidelity into consideration, but when producing quality content it becomes crucial. Capturing good audio can be tricky, but there are a few simple methods that can make big improvements.
Most phones, tablets, and laptops have cameras and microphones that can perform surprisingly well, especially for recording a single voice and acoustic instrument. These devices have been designed to capture and reproduce the human voice intelligibly and with ease. Where they have difficulty is when expanding to louder sound sources or increased distance between the performer and the device, or when trying to achieve detailed sound or pleasant soundscapes.
