Calco UK is located in a rural setting and as such ambient or background noise is generally low. It therefore made commercial sense to record voice-over material for some of the videos and tutorials we produce, rather than travel many miles to a recording studio in an urban environment.
We acquired a couple of recorders and microphones and fed the results into our PCs. The results were far from perfect, but generally above the average youtube quality.
Two of the staff play instruments and as such we began to incorporate background tracks into the sound productions and generally be creative.
Suffice to say we now have a good selection of instruments, amps and sound production equipment as well as access to musicians and a professionally trained sound engineer.
