Thread: Recording audio

  1. #1

    Default Recording audio

    I am using Sony Vegas 7.
    I am recording video guitar lessons, and up to now i have been recording audio through a 'tie-clip' microphone that plugs into my camcorder, and it works great at picking up my voice and also my acoustic guitar.

    Now i want to start to record my electric guitar but the sound through my 'tie-clip' microphone is not clear enough.
    I was thinking about still using the 'tie-clip' microphone plugged directly into the camcorder to pick up my voice and maybe use a mini disc recorder to record the audio from my guitar or maybe record the audio from my guitar directly into my laptop using sony soundforge.

    I was wondering if there is a 'standard' for recording seperate audio in this way, and how easy it is to sync it together in Vegas.

    Any advice that anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks,

    That sounds a pretty "standard" way of doing it to me
    Syncing is a doddle. At the beginning of each take simply name the take - eg "C Am F G7 progression 3 take 2" (it's surprising how important this is) then "3 - 2 -1" and snap your fingers or make some other quick loud percussive sound.

    When you have the Video/Audio and guitar audio on the timeline, you should see a sharp brief peak on both audio tracks where the "click" is. Turn OFF quantise and move the GUITAR track to allign the two.

    Job done.

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks for the reply.
    I thought i could do it like the way that i said.
    I just wanted to check with somebody else before i spent time in setting it up and finding out that it wouldn't work.
    Many thanks,
