I was able to record two videos the other day with a pretty low budget setup that I feel produced at least passable results. See my two latest videos on https://www.youtube.com/user/SRImperio
. If there is anyone out there who wants to know the nuts and bolts of the process, feel free to comment or pm me. I've discovered that it is a lot easier than I thought to produce a video/audio recording.
-Tascam DR-05 (I bought this years ago. I believe they released a second version) - $99
-On Stage Stands MS7701B Tripod Boom Microphone Stand - $21
-On Stage CM01 Video Camera/Digital Recorder Adapter - $10
-VideoPad editing software - $50 (I'm sure there are free solutions out there for basic video editing).
I didn't include the camera used (Canon SX240 HS) in the cost since even a smartphone with HD recording can produce good results. I may want to record another video using my phone as a second camera one of these days.
The Tascam DR-05 is exactly 61cm away from the guitar at a 40 degree angle to the left of me. The mic is also level with the 12th fret, and pointing to the 12th fret. Input/gain level is 69. Room is small with normal low ceiling and rugs on the floor and a lot of wind noise outside. Next time I'll lower the gain and play around with the mic position as I believe there is a lot of room for improvement.
