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!
This question is a follow-up to this one I asked recently. Having purchased the H4n through Amazon, which came with a cd for the required Cubase program by Steinberg, I'm now trying to register as directed by product info (apparently there's a 30-day window of opportunity). What an Alice-in-Wonderland nightmare I'm in. [more inside]
(1) What's a cheap just plain record player that can output via rca cables? (2) Anyone know any good software or apps for doing that on a PC or mac? Just figuring something might already exist to detect different tracks. [more inside]
How can I edit simple music tracks on a PC laptop without spending a fortune? I have pretty good working knowledge of music notation software (mainly Sibelius) but am looking for something that I can use with my Zoom H2 Digital Recorder to multi-track ideas using live instruments and have absolutely no idea what I need. HELP?! [more inside]
Is there any software that will take the input of a USB webcam, and (at a given signal like a mouse-click) save the previous 30 seconds/45 seconds/one minutes/two minutes of video/audio to the hard drive? Windows is required, F/OSS is preferred. [more inside]

What hardware and software would you use to assemble a lightweight music production kit for audio recording and/or sequencing using the iPad as the "hub?" [more inside]
Computer music MeFites! I need your help! Here is what I want to do: compose music on Finale, export the composition to a MIDI sequencing software, add beats that I'd also like to create myself, and then mix in real instruments including voice. What do I need? [more inside]
[Yet another Android app question] Android music app choices look to be slim. Looking for recommendations for playback, streaming and recording apps. [more inside]
I need to record myself giving a presentation for school. My laptop has a built in webcam and microphone. What free Windows software would you recommend for this task?

What would be a good software audio PVR to record an internet stream or line-in on a PC? [more inside]
Audiofilter: So, I'm narrating a book and recording it digitally for someone as a Christmas present. (The individual reads AskMe, hence the anon question.) There's about 10 hours of material. Each chapter is ~ 40 minutes long. Are there programs out there that will automatically parse the chapter files I've recorded into small segments for easy indexing while listening? [more inside]
I want to record my own music. I have no idea where to start. What would be a fairly inexpensive and good beginner's setup hardware and software-wise? [more inside]
My own blue thread makes me want to know how I can record these concerts (Real media streams) to my hard drive and then convert to MP3 and then break them up into individual tracks. I'm on OS X Panther and prefer iTunes but will download whatever.
I recorded a wav file from a MiniDisc onto my laptop - the MD player is getting crotchety and there's extended periods of silence throughout the recording. Is there any tool that can strip out these places where there's no signal recorded? Or do I need to do it by hand (using Audacity)?
Can anyone recommend a cheap (or Freeware) application for recording to mp3 (or something I can convert) from a line in that runs under WinXP? [more inside]
I'm thinking about doing a bit of home recording & have been pondering 4-tracks & the like for a few weeks. Lately, though, I've been thinking it'd make more sense to do it all digitally through my computer & not worry about tapes & stuff. Given the need for hardware and software, what can fellow MeFites recommend that might set me back less than, say, $300?
