So i would like to start recording audio/video, but i have no clue where to start. i want a very cost effective solution, because i currently have no source of income, and only about $36.54 on hand (of course i don't expect to solve my problem with just $37, but you know) i suppose i want to know-


-Should i buy a mic, or is there a more cost effective alternative to record audio?

-What kind of camera should i get? (I'm totally in the dark with this one, i have no idea what kind of video recording thing i should get. i have a digital one that can record video, but it only lasts 46 seconds.)

-What kind of program should i use? i currently have a copy of Cubase my uncle gave me awhile ago, but a friend of mine told me that i can't use it in accordance with video recording. (???)


As you can see, i do have some light in this metaphorical cave, but I'm pretty far in. Any help at all would greatly be appreciated! wink.gif

Do you wanna record guitar only?


I advise that you check out Toneport GX (or POD Studio GX as the new model is named). This will solve the audio problems and it costs around 45$.

Regarding video, I'm not sure I understand about your camera. How can it record only 46 seconds?? Is it a DV camcoder? How does it record? Does it have a Firewire interface?

Regarding video software, you can use Windows Movie Maker, it's free ( when it comes with Windows), or Virtual Dub (freeware) for some simple linear video editing.

BTW, Cubase is fine for audio work. You need 2 apps, one for video and one for audio.

For good quality recording and most effective one I would suggest toneport gx as Ivan said.Its an audio interface (now called POD studio gx) that will allow you to capture good guitar sound with no latency...Also I would suggest getting a MiniDV camcorder (possibly used one).Those camcorders transfer video data via firewire port so make sure you have that interface in your computer (you can buy firewire PCI card for PC for 10$).Also regarding camcorders , if you can find one with Mic input on it it would make you recording even more efficient.You can check for used MiniDV camcorders and find a good one.

If your camcorder doesen't have mic input you will need one software for video capture and one for audio capture and then you will synchronize both files.

If your camcorder do have mic input then you can skip the sync part and record whole mix directly to tape or your PC.

how exactly does the POD studio GX work? like do i plug my guitar directly into it or?????

my camera isn't a camcorder it's just a camera with a built in video feature. i don't think i'll keep worrying about that and just throw it aside, but i still don't know what i'm going to use. any suggestions on what type of DV camcorder i should get? trying to keep it cheap, since i can't afford anything.

i do know what kind of software i'm going to use, so that's not of my concern anymore...

Yes. Here is all the hook ups on it. Line6 stuff is so easy to figure out even I can do it. They got pretty pictures.

Had a guitar hanging, just about waist high, and we are going to play these things until the day we die.
