Hands on Review

If you're a musician who wants to film your practice sessions or a fan in the crowd recording your favorite band, here's a common problem that can often occur: the video you shoot will end up looking OK, but the audio sounds weak and thin. For a medium in which audio is the key component and portability is important, there are relatively few options.

This USB headphone amplifier simulates various monitors and room environments to give you a better idea of how your mixes will translate. The VRM Box software overcomes the major obstacle of mixing through headphones by providing multiple perspectives on your mix, as if listening through speakers in different acoustical situations.

One way to improve the quality of your in-camera audio when shooting video with an HDSLR camera is to utilize an external adapter box (called a Camcorder XLR Adapter). These gizmos attach to the base of your camera and enable you to connect multiple XLR microphones to your camera’s lowly mini-plug mic input.

When people complain about modern music, they often cite obnoxious, unnatural pitch correction as one of the main culprits for their dislike. Whether you agree with this assertion or not, it's important to understand that some of the tools that are used for pitch correction can also sound as natural and emotive as a stark and unprocessed Joni Mitchell recording from 1971.
