Hi guys, I’m just interested to hearing opinions from you youtube performers on the best, inexpensive and portable approach (not being tied to a big desktop computer) for capturing performances. Any ideas?
Could you give a little more info on your performance situation/setup and desired quality?
Sorry, yes. So, the nature of the videos would be tutorial style. I want to have the camera look down as if it is sitting above from the user’s viewpoint. Quality-wise, I’d really like a HD resolution.
Yeah, I’m thinking connect audio output to my laptop and then line up audio to video later. I have a Nexus 5 phone at the minute, I think it records HD.
Are there iPad apps that do anything to help where I can cut out the computer?
Just seeing how you guys set up…
The iPad has iMovie, but it could prove a bit tricky importing long audio files and merging them with the video. Don’t really know, as I haven’t used them.
Great topic! Thanks @hudson. I love to do small Instagram (@rgarrell) videos of my OP-1 beats, but sometimes I really struggle to record with the iPhone and play/turn the knobs.
Regarding where the phone goes when filming, I have my eye on one of these http://www.amazon.co.uk/Joby-GripTight-GorillaPod-Stand-Smartphones-Black-Charcoal/dp/B009GHYMB6
You can plug in the audio directly to the nexus 5. When I’m rehearsing with the band I’m recording with my nexus from our DAW. Just line-out to one of those 4 pole 3,5 mm split y-cables to the phone.
It’s an easy way to share jams with the band.
So you can line-in using one of those cables through the Nexus 5 headphone out?
Bump for a dumb question…
a couple come to mind:
I use a line 6 Sonic Port @Zzzach. $100 max new, and it has a 3.5mm stereo input. Just don’t lose the cable it’s $35 lol…
Check around for deals I’ve seen them go for $60 I want to say.
@josker - mono is fine. I want to keep these unpolished and fun.
Cheers guys. I’ll check these out. It really is a bummer that the CCK doesn’t transfer audio.
Blue Mikey Digital (if you’re on a more recent iPhone, I think iOS 7 or above) does the trick for me. Although it’s a microphone, it has a stereo input jack. The standard camera app recognises this as audio input.
