What is the best thing to do when you want to use an amatuer song for a video project..? This video I'm working on today is using a song in the background that has no MP3 or file anywhere I can find except the original YouTube video by the composer..? I've checked Itunes and all of the regular stores and would be happy to buy it, but it doesn't exist on any album or CD, it's just a song on a youtube video..?
I have a patch cord 1/8stereo male to 1/8stereo male that I plug directly into my PC headphone jack to my PC microphone jack, then I make a voice recording of the song, which I did in this video today... But there is a hiss, and lack of sound quality... ? Or maybe it sounds okay, and I'm just too much of a perfectionist..??
My question is, is there a better way to capture audio from a source like this, when you can't purchase an MP3 or the song commercially..?
