What to consider when choosing recording software

You don’t need to be in a studio for professional results. Look for recording software that records high-resolution audio and video. Aim for a minimum of HD resolution, but go for up to 4K video if you want top-quality recordings. With audio, we suggest a minimum of 44.1 kHz. Planning to record on the go? Choose software with remote recording features such as local recording, an easy mobile app, and remote guests. All-in-one recording software that simultaneously captures audio, video, and your screen will save you money and storage space.

Although, we recommend making sure you can download separate tracks. Separate tracks give you more editing freedom without having to record video and audio separately. Even though recording software’s main aim is to record, check out what editing features are available as well. Smooth automatic editing tools save a lot of time and in some cases, you can even create publishable content without needing specialized editing apps. Extra features include live streaming capabilities, automatic transcription, and easy clip creation.
