How to Create a Training Video

I need to learn how to create a training video. It needs to be able to capture what I am doing on my computer screen, while recording my accompanying dialog. I see these all the time on youtube, but I am unsure how to get started. Where can I find some free training, and/or what kind of software/equipment do I need? Thanks!

wireless transmitter receiver set for home studio headphones?

I currently use a nice set of wired headphones attached to my audio interface in my home studio. The wire is a pain especially when playing guitar or drums. What's the best/cheapest way to get a transmitter attached to my audio interface and a receiver plugged into my existing headphones? I understand that the receiver will likely be battery operated but if the transmitter could be plugged into a power source that'd be a bonus. Specific product recommendations especially welcome. Thanks!

Floating audio widget for recording comments in OS X

I'm responding to student papers that are stuck inside our school's LMS. The software has a recording feature, but it is clunky and sluggish. What I would like to do is leave audio comments as a read the paper, hitting record and pause until I reach the end, then save the recording as an mp3. Quicktime would work perfectly for this if I could get the recording window to stay in the foreground. [more inside]

Sur la terre, les animaux. Du plus petit au plus gros.

Another geeky field recording question! I live in L.A. and would like to spend Memorial Day weekend in a "primitive camping" situation, surrounded by noisy nocturnal wildlife, to make long-form field recordings (6-10 hours). Birds and beasts are a particular interest. I'd like as little human company and contact as possible. Where would you go within, say, a six-hour drive?

You got a TIGHT PAIR, how did it get that way?

I know nothing about recording or making music. How is something like Tight Pair by LIPPS, Inc recorded? When Cynthia Johnson comes in @ ~30 secs, she sounds like she is singing really loudly. At the same time, she sounds further away from the front of the music than the instruments. I'm curious how this effect is achieved, what volume Ms. Johnson was actually singing at in studio, and any other interesting things I don't know to ask about.

Dictation App for iPhone?

How do I make a group of non-singers sound good?

On Monday afternoon I will be recording a group (6-7) of non-singers singing a parody song for an event. The song being parodied is a novelty song and the only instrumental/karaoke versions of the song I've been able to find are rather sparse keyboard or guitar only tracks...which means that the non-singers will need to carry the tune. This isn't a singing competition so while the key priority is everyone has fun, what are the "simple" things I can do to make it sound like we can sing even just a bit. [more inside]

Start recording at Bang

I want to start a few seconds video recording prompted by a gun blast. Plan is to attach a USB camera to a spotting scope and have my Mac start recording a few seconds of video the moment a shot is fired. The start and stop of the Video recording can be done with Automator ad/or Apple script. I am looking for an app or hardware solution to prompt the recording. It could be an application that starts a script once a sound exceeds a certain level. Perhaps even better a motion sensor that will sense the shock in the rifle stock. Thanks for your help. Rogier

Recommend a microphone/usb setup for recording voice to accompany piano

My son is trying to record his voice along with his piano and he needs a microphone/usb setup to record his voice. He wants to sing covers of songs by Coldplay or Adele, if that helps. (this question is eight years old so it seemed like it was time to re-ask.)

Getting an estimate on song royalties

I've started to consider the possibility of recording a covers EP. Before I do so, I'd like to find out how much it would cost to get a license to release these songs. Most of the places I've seen online look like they have an application process, but is there a way to find out what the royalty rate would be before I record these songs?

As part of my doctoral research, I will be conducting interviews with Skype for transcription and analysis.
