Recording Vocal For Audition Using DMC Equipment

A group of PhD students majoring Vocals from Shepherd Music School learned about DMC resources from the introduction DMC director Jane Zhao gave during graduate student orientation at the beginning of the school year. Lindsay Brown was one of many who took advantage of DMC equipment and software to shoot and edit their audition videos and were very happy with the video and audio quality. Not only they got advices from the DMC staff members about what equipment is best for shooting musical performance and how to set up and use the equipment, they also got hand-by-hand help when it came to edit and audio/video synchronization in professional video editing software Final Cut Pro X.

Below is a snippet of Lindsay’s recording:
