This class is a broad introduction to field audio recording. You will learn principles of recording audio, popular microphones and gear, common field recording setups, and have a chance to practice some of your own field recording with our digital recorders and mics.

This is a non-certification course, but we encourage you to take Video Production in the Field as a companion course.
