Help! Maybe I am making this more difficult than it should be. I have a new Macbook Pro 13″.
I want to get the best sounding audio from my acoustic guitar onto Youtube along with decent looking video. This would be my first time upload.
My first idea was to use my dv camcorder and plug my guitar into a mixer, have it go back to the camcorder mic input so as not to use the camera’s lousy internal mic. Then put all of this to iMovie, edit and upload it to YT.
My second idea would be to mic my guitar using an Apogee Duet ( not purchased yet ) and use GarageBand for the audio. For the video portion, I also learned i can maybe upgrade its quality by using the iSight camera through iMovie instead of the camcorder.
My problem is that I do not know how OR if both audio & video can be used together this way while recording an event at the same time. I want to use the iSight camera to record the video, but have the advantage of superior sound using Apogee/Garageband while doing it and not the internal Macbook Pro mic.
Am I making any sense or am I lost, clueless, and making this into a bigger thing than it needs to be? Thanks!!
