Recording Classical Guitar with the Edirol R-09HR

I wanted to make this video for those who would like to record but don't have a lot of money to spend on a recording project. As fearful as it might be, recording is probably one of the most important exercises a musician at any level can do. The beauty of the classical guitar is that we are able to record whenever we want. I hope this helps those who would like to record, but may have been thinking that it's too complicated or expensive to do. We are very lucky to be living in a time when it's not.


Please support this video by purchasing the Edirol R-09HR at Amazon - thank you

Kevin,

Do you record audio with the Edirol when your making a video, and add the audio to the video afterwards? Would love to hear what you use to do that. I also use an Edirol, and am very pleased with the simplicity and quality. Thanks for all your insights on this blog.

Thanks for such a great blog Kevin, i have gotten alot out of reading your posts.

I would be interested as well in how you sync your audio and video.

Hi Kevin,

I recently purchased the Edirol and found it to be a great way to really hear how I sound - both the good and the bad. Best price I found is $308 at Amazon.

Thanks for the blog. I always walk away having learned something new.

Hi Everyone -

I'm just using an old Vegas program for video editing. Basically, you just need to cut the audio from the video, and then paste the Edirol's audio into the video. It's not that hard in Vegas to figure out, but you would need software for that. Some free software that is supposed to be excellent is WAX http://www.debugmode.com/wax/
It's probably similar to Vegas.


I hope this helps. Enjoy your recording,

Kevin
