High Quality Audio for Videos
Anyone have any suggestions on how to capture high quality audio for your 1RAD videos? I know there’s a better way than recording with my iphone mic.
I have an interface for my computer and an iRig but I’d ideally want to capture video and audio at the same time through my phone, unless anyone can suggest some easy video editing tools.
Hey there! So I got the IK Multimedia iRig Mic Studio for the sole purpose that I could plug it directly into my phone for recording videos. Before I had that, adding a boost pedal to my board helped with some added volume.
I like to record my audio in a DAW in real time as I film, then I edit it on top of my video so that the sound is really crisp and clear (also mixing the track in stereo is great, especially when posting to Instagram. I use iMovie to combine the .mp3 and video tracks-hope this helps! 🙂
@damsch so are you recording yourself on audio with one device and then video on another device? I have an iPad Pro, and I just plug into my focusrite with my guitar and mic, I use garage band and set it up to use in the background and I just use my camera on my iPad to take video. But I have no idea how to take audio and video at the same time, I think would need a separate device like a phone or a real camera.
Fantastic handle/username btw 🙂
I record audio on my computer’s DAW and play at my desk where my phone camera is positioned so everything is close at hand. So I would say if you have a basic DAW on a laptop, use that to record audio and then use your phone as a camera!
@damsch Nice! That’s perfect too if you’re making your own stuf too so you can capture that. I still haven’t got into making my own riffs or music just yet. I have some songs written but have no idea the key, it’s just all in my head at this point, but I can see myself just recording like that so I can work things out. Last week I thought=ht I was recording with my iPad with the video, and I lost some good stuff I had worked out lol
@damsch Oh one more thing, my user name is my Drag King alter ego. I’m @radioactivequilts on IG. I’m a sewist and quilter too. Too many hobbies...
I use the recording from my Logic Pro DAW which I am recording at the same time I’m having my camera record me. I get a good take of video then I quick mix the audio for good enough binaural panning then export and take the video and audio importing it into adobe premier pro and sync them up manually. Render and export then upload.
i know this is not an option for all but I figure to tell you that it’s a bit more labor intensive to get high quality then what you are using currently. Investment of time to learn DAW/video editing on a computer (don’t worry there are YouTube videos to help!) and money for it all.
I have a background in video editing and I’ve been learning through internet asking of kind people I’m in a gear group with and also YouTube to trouble shoot my journey into learning how to record and mix my own music. So I’m a bit tech saavy because of my graphics/video degree. Feel free to ask me anything honestly I’ll help you f I can. @iamjoanofheart on IG.
