This wasn't very good because my video editing skills aren't stellar.

About two years ago, this young lady and I played a cover of The Band Perry's "If I Die Young." Of course, I wasn just getting into video and sound editing then, so meshing the two audios together and sinking it up was a challenge. Tell me what you think, how we could've made it better. I appreciate any feedback.

Hi Fijabam:

I thought it sounded good. It was synced pretty well. It looks like you had earbuds in, so I'm assuming you were listening to her recording when you recorded yours. I didn't see any earbuds in her ears, so I'm also assuming that you were not both using a click track.

That's something you could consider in the future. It's how Fiddlerman does his group projects, and how we did our mini group project: The Ash Grove.

As you may have seen on the Pachelbel Canon project page, there's a click track that everyone is supposed to listen to in-ear when they are recording. This ensures that everyone is playing at the same tempo, much like I think you did by listening to the cellist's video.

The advantage of a click track, I suppose, is that the click helps you stay on tempo better than just listening to someone playing.

Beyond that, you could work on sound mixing. In your video, the violin overpowers the voice somewhat. But, if you wanted the cello under the violin, you could consider recording an additional separate voice track so you could bump up the level of the voice.

That's my two cents. I love that song, by the way. Nice job!

Hi Jasmine.  I know nothing about recording so I can't help you.

 

@Diane Your reply actually made a tiny bit of sense to me.  I'm learning so very much.  Thanks.

@Diane...Oh yes, those are all great ideas! I am not sure what Garageband is capable of as far as mixing goes, but I'm sure if I keep playing around with it, it's magical secrets shall be revealed to me.

 

@stonedog...I'll keep the dancer in mind for the next video. bunny_pole_dancer

FYI, I have done the video / audio editing for one virtual ensemble and will be doing another in June.  The first one I did, I did all the video and audio synchronization in Final Cut Pro X with some minor audio editing using Audacity.

The upcoming ensemble has many more participants and is longer so the methods I used last time will not work.  For the upcoming virtual ensemble I will be using REAPER, an inexpensive Digital Audio Workstation, for all the audio work.  From what I have learned so far, REAPER is an awesome tool for recording, editing, and mixing multiple tracks.
