Hey guys. I’m getting very close to starting my YouTube channel, and I need some tips and advice. I have both OBS Studio and Audacity installed, but I was wondering, since OBS can already record my microphone’s audio, what is the point in Audacity? Should I be recording audio with both, or just the video with OBS? What are the dis/advantages of either? Also, what are the optimal settings of Audacity to get the highest possible quality audio? I have a Blue Yeti Pro, if that matters, though I’m not using the XLR input yet (still gotta get the thing it plugs into, which is another topic entirely because I don’t know a single thing about those).
I don’t know what most of the settings in either program mean so the more details provided the better. Explain like I’m 5 please. (If there is a place I’m not seeing that lays out very simply what every single setting and button does, that would be awesome, but I didn’t see one.) ^-^
