Is this good enough recording quality?

Post by hectoring » Sat Jul 21, 2018 4:19 pm

Hi, I'm new here. I'm hoping to get feedback on my playing and maybe participate in some lessons. As a test I've uploaded a quick video recorded using my phone. Is the quality good enough, or do I have to invest in some recording equipment?

Plenty good enough I would say.

I think it's good. Which equipment do you use?

Thanks for the replies! This was taken with my smartphone (Galaxy S7). I've been doing some recordings, when I do some uncopyrighted works, I'll post them on the forums :)

You have the answer already about recording quality (and I agree) but in addition I want to say, after listening to the Brouwer studies on your YT page, that you have a fine sense of dynamics.

Thanks! I've really enjoyed working on some of these Brouwer studies - I wanted to do some simper pieces to get used to recording (I get nervous and focus too much on playing the right notes) - but I was pleasantly surprised to find a lot of challenges in dynamics and interpretation in them, compared to the more "classical" studies.
