Recording Checklist
Here are some tips to make sure you have an optimal recording setup:
- Use a computer with a Chrome browser that’s up-to-date.
- Check your internet stability. Ethernet cable connections are preferred over WiFi.
- Use an external mic, if possible. Even the mic in your ear/headphones are better than your computer microphone.
- Use headphones/earphones to prevent echo and increase audio quality, even if they don't have a microphone.
- Close all other applications that don’t need to be open during the recording. This prevents CPU overload. Important: Please close all other programs that try to use your mic/camera.
- Turn on Do Not Disturb on your computer to prevent any notifications or alerts.
- Video is a priority for these shows so make sure you're prepared to appear on camera and your setup is camera-ready (as good as it can be). Avoid having any bright light sources directly behind you, like a window.
- Riverside will be uploading your video in the background, so once we end the recording stick around for a minute until the upload finishes.

If you have any questions just reply to this email. Looking forward to chatting!
