Audio-Technica is offering the “Basic Audio Techniques for Video” tutorial series on YouTube, which offers more than a dozen different videos covering the basics of handheld and lavalier microphones, wireless systems, boom mics and more

The videos are short and designed to be easy to follow and filled with useful information. Most of the techniques outlined in these videos are applicable to both a home setup and the wider world of video production in the field.

For example, in “Selecting the Right Handheld Mic,” different types of handheld mics are compared and contrasted, with a short demonstration of the properties of cardioid pickup patterns. Additionally, lavalier mics are outlined in multiple videos, with an overview of different types and their uses, the technique of “reflected lavalier miking” (which uses a lavalier taped to a hard surface as a boundary-type microphone), strategies for hiding lavaliers out of sight, how to use a tie bar clip to fasten a lavalier to a video subject, and the basic use of lavalier windscreens.
