I was hoping to get some advice on optimizing my audio when recording gameplay footage.
Right now I use a blue snowball USB microphone. When I record on PC I use that microphone along with Shadowplay and when I record console games I use the same microphone and I use an elgato HD60 S.
The problem I keep coming across is there always seems to be a low hum when I record with the elgato and I can't find a way to record the audio and gameplay separately so I can try to edit the audio. Not that I would even know what to do but it would be helpful if I could at least get to that point. The hum has happened with both my PS3 and PS4.
When I record PC stuff there is a buzzing when I talk. Sometimes it isn't that noticeable and sometimes it is loud. The most recent recording I did the buzzing was very loud and I could not hear anything else in the video.
The only thing I could think to do with the pc recording is to record the commentary with the elgato sound capture and see if I can edit it that way as a separate sound file but I haven't tried that yet and I don't have audio editing stuff in the first place.
This has caused a lot of frustration for me and has made it very hard to progress with this.
Any advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
