Guest checklist and tips: Recording on a computer

« to Best Recording Practices: Overview

Before you join a Studio session with your computer browser or the Riverside MacOS desktop app, follow these tips for a seamless recording experience:

Before recording

During recording

  • Wear headphones to prevent echo and increase overall audio quality.
  • Use an external microphone rather than your computer's built-in mic which picks up more noise.
    • We recommend a wired microphone. However, a wireless microphone or a microphone built into wired headphones is also suitable.
  • If possible, record in a space with daylight or with a lamp in front of you.
    • The strongest light should be in front of you, not behind you.
IMPORTANT:
Keep in mind that your locally recorded track will be higher quality than what you see and hear during the live call.

When the recording stops

  • Leave the Riverside browser window open until you see Upload Complete or 100% Uploaded.
