Why Hire A Professional Audio Engineer?

May 11, 2015

There are certain things you should leave to the pros and recording your events is definitely one of them. If you want to make sure everything is captured, clear and heard without any problems hiring a professional audio engineer is a must. After all, you have plenty of other things to take care of during the day of the event.

Why Record Your Event?

Whether you want to use the content in your next podcast, in a future promo video or simply to look back on as a fond memory, it’s always a smart choice to record your event.

Experience Is Key

Why leave something so important in the hands of an amateur? Recording your live events is something that shouldn’t be overlooked and if key pieces are left out, you’re going to regret it. That’s why you should choose somebody with years of experience and technical training, like the pros at CitiView.

Want your audio to sound to be crystal clear? With state of the art equipment and technology you’ll get exactly what you’re looking for. This may not be the case if you decide to go with a beginner.

For High Resolution Audio, Does The Format Really Matter?

Jun 08, 2015

MP3, FLAC, WAV. does it really make a difference? When it comes to listening to music, high-resolution audio is the way to go. But what’s more important, the quality of the gear used to record or the format?

Before we get into the details, it’s vital to point out that sound quality is determined by the quality of the gear used to record and the skill and expertise of the audio engineers. If you have bad equipment and the audio engineer doesn’t have much experience, chances are the audio won’t sound very good.

You can think of it all in terms of a high-definition television. Look at the difference between a sporting event or a movie broadcasted in HD and then compare it to a black and white film from the 60s. Even if you transferred the old movie to a 1080 Blu-ray, it wouldn’t make the film any clearer and the same holds true for audio.

When it comes down to it, high-resolution audio files are more expensive than standard definition files, so is it worth it? There are a few things to consider before making a decision:

  • Do you have high quality speakers or headphones?
  • Is the recording good enough to benefit from high resolution mastering?
  • Will the audience or listeners be able to tell the difference?

At CitiView Audio Visual, our expert audio engineers are highly skilled and have years of experience and training. We know exactly how to make your event sound spectacular and reach your entire audience so give us a call today at 212-632-5196 to learn more!
