Learning To Use The Audio Section

Here's where you breathe some life into your video by recording your script in easy to read sentences. When recording, remember to be energetic so viewers are engaged and can focus on the message you're trying to deliver.

Allowing Content Samurai Access to your Microphone

1) If this is your first time here you'll need to give Content Samurai access to your microphone - if you've already done this you shouldn't see this prompt

If you are having problems getting the microphone to work, here is an article which may help you troubleshoot any issues.

Learning the Buttons and Recording

1) In the Audio section, you should see a Recording Volume bar in the top left corner, which gives you an average input volume from your microphone.
If the bar turns red, you need to lower your voice a little bit, lower the input volume of the microphone, or move back from your microphone.

2) You will also see a green Next button, above a Play and Record button on the right-hand side of this section. These are the buttons you use to record and navigate through the recordable chunks of script.

Note: The green Next button will be a green 'Record' button if you haven't recorded anything yet, which will change into what you see in the image after you record the sentence.

Pro Tip: You can either click the Record Button, which turns into the stop button when recording, click it again to stop and then once more to move onto the next section.
You can also use Keyboard shortcuts to navigate through this section with ease - the right arrow and spacebar will start then stop recording then move onto the next section, so you can flow through the recording without taking your hand off one key.

Where to From here?

When you've finished recording all of your script and selected background music, you're ready to move on to the Preview section by clicking the 'Preview Your Video' button

Remember all of your work saves automatically, so there's no need to press a save button before you continue.
