Do you want to record clean audio at your event? We show you the three best ways to record audio at your event, so you can get a clean recording with clean audio that you can keep after your event.

Quick Answer: The three best ways to get a clean recording at your event are using your phone with an XLR to lightning cable, using an audio recorder, or renting a digital mixer, especially if you want to do multitrack recording.

1 – Use your phone

The cheapest way to record clean audio is using your phone. But we don’t recommend using the microphone on the phone as it won’t give you good results even if you put your microphone right up against the speaker at an event.

So, what you can do is you can use a cable with XLR on one end, which will come from the soundboard, and a lightning connector on the other end, which will go into your phone. This will give you super clean audio all the way from the board plugged into your voice recorder app on your phone.

2 – Use an Audio Recorder

Using an outboard audio recorder, such as  Tascam DR40, is a good option if you don’t want to tie up your phone for the entire day. This recorder will record to an SD card. There is also a built-in microphone in the recorder, so you can use it if you don’t have a soundboard. In addition, it can take both XLR and ¼ inch as well, so you can also plug it into any soundboard and record clean audio.

3 – Use a Digitial Mixer

Using a digital mixer is another great way to get a super clean audio recording as most digital mixers also record straight to a USB drive. So, for example, if we’re at your event, you can rent a mixer, give us a USB, and we’ll put a USB in it the mixer to record your event.

Not only does the mixer allow you to record the output of what you’re hearing, but it can also do multitrack recording or record each channel separately.
