Mods, please accept my apologies if this is the wrong forum. I just thought it would get the most visibility here.
What equipment are those of you posting your own youtube videos using?
I'm not talking about the pro stuff. The home recorded things is what I'm curious about.
And for audio stuff like when you're playing with a backing track or even just a solo piece, what are you using?
I need to get my act together and pick up some gear to do the same.
Studio time is expensive, so looking for suggestions for good audio quality but affordable ideas.
Thank to all in advance!

I have a sennheiser e906 mic that goes into a presonus firebox. That goes into my computer via firewire. I use a program Reaper to record, mix and render my clips. Lately I have been using my iphone for video (it is better then my old camera. I am hoping to by a better video camera soon but nothing that expensive.) I take the audio and video and put it into an inexpensive video movie making software by Sony. Can't remember the name of hand. (Sony video studio?) You just have to line up the video and audio in the program which is pretty easy and can make a bunch of different edits and add effects ect. I am sure there are better ways but this is what I do and pretty inexpensive IMO. Hope this helps.

Yeah Pinner!
That's what I'm talking about. Not sure if my pc is up to snuff but if I can figure out what peripheral gear I need then I can deal with that.
Your stuff always sounds great and you've got a very cool style.
Thanks for the info and keep posting your stuff man!

For good quality you need.

1. Some type of interface, the thing you plug a mic or guitar into, that connects to the computer. Like these.

2. Mic if you are recording your amp.
https://www.google.com/search?sourc...=hp...0l5.0.0.1.98587...........0.RTZMRp4Yv6o

3. Some type of audio recording/editing software, DAW, digital audio workstation. 3a. Speakers to monitor the audio.

4. Guitar software or a hardware amp sim if you want to record direct/not use an amp.

5. Video recording/editing software.

6.Camera/camcorder/iphone to record video.

Or just use your iphone/android to film/record with and edit that with some cheap video software. Many of the YT videos you see of amp/pedal demos are done this way. Audio quality is not as good but it generally captures the sound in the room.

Or you could use something like this to record higher quality audio without the whole home recording setup.

Basic setup looks like this.

There is a recording gear emporium here were you can buy this stuff used.
