How to Record Audio in DaVinci Resolve?

Step #1. Set up your microphone.

  • Close DaVinci Resolve.
  • Attach your microphone to your computer.
  • Launch Resolve. Now it should recognize your microphone.

Step #2. Create a timeline (if not already) which should have your video.

After launching Resolve, on the “Edit” page, create a new timeline using your video clips (if not already created).

Step #3. Create a new audio track

  • Go to the “Fairlight” page.
  • Right-click on the track header and click on “Add Track” > select “Mono“. (Mono is preferred for dialogue, you can also add “Stereo”).
  • It will add a new Audio track. This is where you’ll record.

Step #4. Patch the microphone input to your desired audio track.

  • Click on the menu “Fairlight” > “Patch Input/Output“.
  • From the “Source” > select “Audio Inputs“. It should display your microphone.
  • Click on the microphone.
  • From “Destination” > select “Track Input“. You’ll see your added track here.
  • Click on the desired audio track.
  • Click on “Patch“.
  • Now your microphone input is tied to your desired audio track.

Step #5. Solo your track if needed (or mute other tracks).

Click on “S” (solo) under your required track.

Step #6. Arm the track by clicking the “R” button.

Click on the “R” button to enable recording.

As soon as you click on the “R” button, you should see the decibel level of your microphone under Mixers > your audio track (A1 or A2 or …)

Which means the attached microphone is working.

Step #7. Mute your audio to stop hearing yourself while you are recording.

Step #8. Start recording.

Click on the record button (circle) to start recording. Make sure before recording, you set your playhead to wherever you want to record within your audio track.
