Recording Solutions for Social Media image 1

As a musician on social media, you don't just want friends to hear what you post — you want your music to reach new ears. If you capture your creative expression with studio-level sound quality, you'll soon find that your engagement noticeably increase — that's just the nature of high-quality content. But how can you enhance the sound quality of your social media posts without investing in a whole studio's worth of audio equipment? Thankfully, you have some simple solutions to elevate your audio far beyond what your phone or camera can provide, and you won't need to set up a recording studio to do it.

Enhancing your sound quality for content creation

While smartphone cameras and microphones continue to improve year by year, you're limiting your potential if that's all you use to produce social media content. And whether you're an instrumentalist or a singer-songwriter, you have more options than ever to improve your sound quality. Modern content creation can be as simple or complex as you want it to be, and your workflow can be as personal to you as your music is.

While your options for enhancing your sound quality are seemingly endless, the principles of audio production still rule: capture a good performance with a good microphone and a good recorder, and the results will speak for themselves. As a musician on social media, you could invest in individual components like a microphone, a high-quality recorder, and other processors to finalize your sound, but that's not the most efficient route for musicians that want to share their music on social media. Many are turning to dedicated recorders like the TASCAM Portacapture X6 that combine all the elements above, essentially giving you a mini recording studio that fits in your hand.

Portacapture X6 is optimized for content creation

There are a wide range of portable handheld recorders available for various applications, but the TASCAM Portacapture X6 stands out for musicians and content creators. With built-in stereo condenser microphones, plus the ability to connect external microphones and instruments, the Portacapture X6 capture rich, detailed audio that far surpasses the fidelity of a smartphone or camera mic. Its app-like interface provides fast access to optimized settings for music recording, dialogue, ASMR, and more, which means you can set up and start recording optimized audio with just a few button presses. And because the Portacapture X6 supports advanced 32-bit float recording, you'll be sure that your audio levels are always optimized without even having to set input levels.

Once you've recorded your performance (you can record up to six tracks at a time), the Portacapture X6 has everything you need to add that final polish. Add reverb to vocals, balance your mix with EQ, and maximize your sound with compression, all right from the Portacapture X6's simple Launcher interface. Whether you're recording your music in your home, or out wherever your inspiration takes you, the Portacapture X6 gives you the tools you need to produce better-sounding content for social media.

Portacapture X6 vs. built-in mics: the results are clear

It's obvious how much you can improve your sound with a dedicated recorder like the Portacapture X6 when you hear the results. In this comparison video, musician Aaron Kellim demonstrates the difference between his iPhone, camera microphone, and Portacapture X6. Even if you're not listening on headphones, it's clear that the Portacapture X6 sounds wider, deeper, and more detailed than the phone and camera.


Present your music with the sound quality it deserves

If you've poured your passion into your music, it deserves to be heard with the best sound quality possible — and you'll be amazed at what you can achieve even with a simple handheld recorder like the TASCAM Portacapture X6. Enhancing your sound quality means you'll capture listeners' attention faster, and they're more likely to engage with your if it has that professional-sounding polish. And with the ability to connect external sound sources, plus support for wireless sync with Atomos devices, the Portacapture X6 can become an integral component of more complex production setup if that's where your content takes you.
