Hi All,

I have a Logitec quickcam 9000 to record my video which is just fine apart from the audio! The audio is terrible!

Can anyone suggest something nice and cheap that will get me some decent audio to compliment the video?

Cheers All smile.gif

It has been a great entry-level interface for me over the past year.

The above will do you fine, man.

Could grab one for around £50/60 here. When I was making the same search you are, I couldn't find anything for < £50 sad.gif

interesting - so the guitar plugs directly into the pod then the pod into the computer? What about my amp? Sorry to sound thick but i'm new to this recording stuff smile.gif

Correct. You will not need an external amp. You will run the Pod Farm software on your computer, which emulates various amps and effect pedals. You can use the preset tones, or modify/create your own tones.

It has taught me a lot about tone and how different amps/effects sound. Otherwise I would have to spend hours in guitar shops testing different gear or listening to video clips of other people.

Does it sound as good as an amp?

Using this, plus various VSTs, is the cheaper way of having access to loads of effects, amps, cabs, etc.

It won't sound as good as the real thing, but it comes (depending on what software you use) close. It's crazy how many sounds you can get.

The pod provides software emulation if you want it, or you could come out of the line out of your amp in to pod. I use a USB mixer and a microphone for my voice and three for my guitar, run that in to the mixer and then that goes usb in to the computer. My Camera connects via firewire. You can tell your recording software to pull audio and video from two different places. If you get an audio interface with more than one input you get more flexibility, but also greater cost.

VST = Virtual Studio Technology.

When you start one up, you get a few interfaces, be it the EQ settings of an amp, an effects pedal you want, etc. You then tweak those to get the sound you like.

VSTi's (VST instruments) such as drum machines, give you the ability to add more instruments to your songs. Lay down a quick drum track, record a rhythm with the VST, a lead, and edit it in a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation), such as Reaper. Now you have your track smile.gif

It's reaaaaaaaally fun stuff.

POD is basically an external sound card for you system. You plug it to your PC via USB and connect your PC speakers to it.

The difference with POD is that it is a sound card with focus on guitar recordings. If you remember, you have line input in your regular sound card. Well, POD has guitar input. This means you can plug in your guitar, hear it, and record it on your PC.

In addition to that, POD comes with POD Farm software, which emulates the tones of famous amps/stomps/effects. It can process your sound to make it sound realistic. However, don't expect studio quality, or real-sounding amp. It's more an emulation, but a rather good one - certainly enough for demo recordings.

Last, you will need a software that will enable you to record that guitar sound. With POD you get Abletone Live Lite (if I remember correctly, please correct me if I'm mistaken). I would recommend Reaper or Cubase for that purpose.

Hey man,

I've been using Pod Studio GX for 2 months and i can say it's really great for recording.Nothing complicated, just plug it to your PC and you are ready to record smile.gif I'd suggest that to you also. And let me know if you buy it. I can send you really cool presets wink.gif

PS:Sorry for the late answer, been busy with midterms lately smile.gif

Dogukan,

Yep, let me know if you need any help with the Pod GX. I can't help much with other gear.

Pod GX is great. The only problem is that you can't add effects "live" in the middle of a song such as clen/distortion/chrorus etc., since you don't have a pedalboard with it.

Some suggest adding your real stomps in front, but I've never tried that.

What i did in the end was get a podx3, which has a pedalboard, so that I can record and play almost the same way I use my amp & real pedalboard. Then again it's hard to obtain the same tone you get with your amp with these modelling devices, at least for me, maybe because I lack patience to tweak so many settings, store patches, etc.

And one last solution would be recording the dry signal, and then add the effects afterwards, but I've bnever tried that.


GX is awesome. But these are my thoughts after three years "fighting" with these devices. Not a big deal if you won't be changing your tone in the whole song, but a bit annoying if you have to play clen and distortion parts in the same track, or add any other effects on/off while recording. If that's your case I'd suggest getting some device that includes foot switches too.

Actually, POD Studio UX1 and higher models have footswitch option. Generally you can use your pedals without problems in front of this device and leave it to act and simulate "amp".

I recommend it for all the home recordings needs. It's simple to use and sounds decent.

Does it sound like a real amp?

- No. But it is really hard to get a good home recording of a real amp - so yes it will most likely sound much better then a poorly recorded real guitar amp at home.

Just a small correction. POD Studio UX1 doesn't have the footswitch option.
