I see a lot of videos where people cover tunes on multiple instruments on youtube and its great.

I have no idea how they record the video/audio and get it to sync. Anyone have any insight on the process? seems to be quite common

i did a couple of these for my last album. dealing with the extra hassle of video while doing all the production and playing was a huge hassle. not sure if i'll ever try to do that again...

Cool thread, I love this stuff and the clips are great. I'm still trying to find the video of the guy going from room to room playing different instruments that I saw a few years ago.

cool, how did you do it?
I recorded every instrument into Logic Pro, while shooting video with a Q3HD.
I then mixed the audio tracks, exported the mix into Final Cut, synced every
video clip with the audio mix, then got creative with video editing for switching
angles (in my case the different video clips).

As others have said above, it's quite painful. I recorded every instrument late
at night, after work, when my internal clock is usually out of whack. Playing
along a track you previously recorded and keeping time is even harder than
playing along somebody else, as you can't remember whether you were ahead
or behind the beat in the current bar - that is obvious in the final clip.

i had similar problems. 99% of my tracks were recorded between 10pm and 3am, so my sense of timing isn't as sharp as it could be, especially on the drums. I have enough skill with time-stretching to fix it in post, but that presents its own challenges when trying to sync video, because if your anchor points are a beat that was fixed for performance reasons, then your whole track is off by that much, and you end up chasing your tail syncing it all. headache.
