I was over on LinkedIn the other day, and Tiffany posted this question in a VO group I’m in there:
Does anyone have a recommendation for laptop w/ great sound intake? Not looking for a mac just pc……
Puzzled at the phrasing of the question, I tried to help. And this is what I said.
Great sound intake? I’m thinking you may be trying to ask about a particular computer’s ability to record sound, but I’m not sure – if not, please correct me.
If so, rest assured that any computer is just fine – they all record the data in virtually the same way, so don’t worry at all about that. If the computer you choose has a USB port and can get on the Internet, you’re good to go.
A more important question would be about fan noise and hard drive noise, because some computers are louder than others. And if the computer’s in the room with you when you record, your mic may pick up its various noises. Not good.
Laptop or desktop, it really doesn’t matter so much these days. Just get something quiet.
Hope this helps.
