Minimize background noise. This may mean: closing windows, locating the interview away from heaters or air conditioners, moving away from HVAC vents, and possibly moving away from some types of fluorescent lights.
Do a 30-second test of your recording.Is the recording clear? Can you hear both the interviewer and interviewee? Is there background noise? (It is best to listen to the playback with headphones when assessing quality.)
Pro tip: record 10 seconds of silence to discover any ambient noise issues.
Whenever possible, set your device down approximately 6-12 inches from each party. Ensure that your microphone is placed optimally between each person.
Leave 5 seconds of silence before you begin recording and once you stop, ensuring that your words – and those of your interviewee – are captured.
