If you are going to be releasing a streamed version of your gameplay video you may be interested in recording voice to play over top of game audio. Sound recording and then dubbing the sounds on top of the gameplay can be a difficult task especially if you aren't that familiar with recording game audio and film editing. In this article we'll discuss some of the main setup steps for recording voice and game audio at the same time.
To begin with the setup you will need a microphone, recording program and a set of quality headphones at a minimum.

A top-quality editing software that can merge together the footage as well as the audio will help to ensure that you can professionally edit the video after you are done.
How to Record Gameplay Audio and Commentary

Filmora scrn is a powerful but easy-to-use screen recorder & video editor. Some of its main features include recording high paced games at up to 120 fps, recording screen and webcam simultaneously. Apart from that it's also a handy video editor tool, with which you will be able to do basic editing, add annotations/text/callouts and more. Download the free trial version below.
To begin using this software you just need to install it from the website. After it is installed you can download the software for your OS and setup the main dimensions for recording.
Step 1. After setting up the part of the screen that will be captured, you will set the sources for capture on audio. Scenes and sources will allow you to change the resolution and the quality of video as well as the focus on audio. Be sure to pick out your soundcard for audio record and then make sure that your microphone is plugged in so that you can record yourself speaking into the mic over the game sound FX.
Step 2. Get the game sound levels right and make sure you can speak over them by doing a few cast recordings.
Once you are satisfied you can just click start recording, begin playing your game and then choose an upload or save button when your recording is complete.
