If you wish to utilize your computer to its fullest potential, you must understand the concept of screen recording. Sometimes, recording your screen can be a frustrating experience due to the presence of background noise from your computer or surroundings.
The following is a tutorial for recording your screen on your Mac without recording background noise. The keyboard shortcuts Command + Shift + 5 can be used to screen record on a Mac without any background noise.
The toolbar will appear with several options for recording a screen. Enable audio recording by selecting “Options”, then “Built-in Microphone” before starting. The audio can then be edited using third-party applications.
I will provide some additional information on how to avoid background noise during screen recording.
Using Mac’s screen recording feature
In recent years, Apple has added a growing number of applications to its devices. However, the ability to record and capture screens is not a new function. Mac computers are equipped with two recording options that can be used to capture screen recordings.
The first possibility is to use the screen capture option. To launch the screen recording toolbar, press Command + Shift + 5 on your keyboard. There is an option in this toolbar for recording the entire screen, a part of the screen, or even a specific application.
There is also an options button that allows you to select different windows and determine whether or not a delay should occur before the recording begins.
Make sure that you select the “Built-in Microphone” option in the “Options” tab before recording your screen. You will not be able to record sound if this option is not selected.
You can also record your screen via Apple’s software, by using the QuickTime Media Player.
You can take screen recordings using this app, which comes with your computer. The media player offers a variety of options that are not available by pressing Command + Shift + 5.
You may also find it useful to know that the QuickTime Player offers you the option to select the audio input for your screen recording.
Despite the difficulty of recording sound from other apps running on your computer, you can select the microphone of your computer to act as your audio input device.
Any remarks you make will be included in the screen recording if you choose the internal microphone as your audio input device. If you have achieved this, you can then edit the sound and video files to include the desired parts.
The easiest method of recording whatever you desire is by using a portable recorder. However, this method adds unwanted background noise to the recording.
You will need to find a way to eliminate background noise if you want to be able to record only your voice. You may wish to record in a quiet environment, however, this may not always be feasible.
The good news is that one can cancel out other background noise while maintaining one’s voice. The first thing you can do is edit recordings to remove background noise.
The first step is to open QuickTime Player on your Mac and play the screen recording you have taken. Then select the segment of the audio from which you would like to remove the background noise.
Last but not least, click on Noise Removal under the “Effects” tab and adjust the amount to suit your preferences. The larger the scale, the greater the level of background noise that will be filtered out of the audio.
Most of your sound files should be capable of being edited to remove background noise with this simple tool. You may also wish to explore other alternatives. This could include the use of a headset with a microphone.
There are usually noise suppression mechanisms built into headset microphones so that they only record your voice. The team will still perform well even if they do not perform perfectly.
Alternatives to Screen Recording
You can still take screen recordings while filtering out background noise even if you are having problems with screen recordings or do not want to use QuickTime Player. The easiest way to do this is to use Zoom.
Zoom allows people to make video calls easily. Many businesses and schools use teleconferencing to facilitate student, teacher, and coworker communication. The Zoom software can be easily adapted to someone who doesn’t need background music in a screen recording.
You can do this by opening Zoom and starting a meeting. Then just click the screen-sharing icon in the center. You can select which windows to record or if you just want the entire screen recorded.
When you’ve got your screen sharing set up, you’ll need to get your audio settings, which are by the mute button.
You can adjust input sensitivity in the audio settings. If you increase the sensitivity of your microphone, you can pick up on small and quiet noises. You can tell your microphone to ignore everything except your voice by lowering the sensitivity.
The options button can be used to start a recording. From there, you can choose whether to record to your machine or the cloud. Zoom will begin recording your screen and audio once you have selected an option.
By pressing the mute button on your Zoom headset, you can easily mute your microphone. It is also possible to include a video of yourself in your recording, which can be helpful depending on what the recording will be used for.
Regardless of the method you choose, removing the background sound from your screen recording should not be a problem. There is a lot of great software available from Apple and Zoom that will allow users to record video and sound as they desire.
