One of these days, I plan to join in on the piano bar. I Was thinking about different options as far as ways of posting recordings. I prefer to go the you tube route because I like to see the performance as well as hear. (big thumbs up to everyone who posts videos)
Here's my question. In this link Pearl Jam-Release-Piano Cover VK (love her by the way)is obviously using some type of software to combine audio and video. I was going to use my iphone to record me playing but her audio is so clear. Would this be audacity or something similar?

1. Record a video while you play
2. At the same time, if on digital piano, you need to have your piano connected to a computer via MIDI/USB, and then record your playing using software like GarageBand.
3. Create a project using some video editing software (like iMovie on mac), and import the audio file as a sound track.
4. Sync audio and video
5. Export project in a format that YouTube accepts (avi, mov, mp4, etc.)
6. Upload to YouTube

No, you can see the left computer screen on video. She was not using midi. She used a digital audio software to record from the line outputs of her keyboard.

But yes, you need to sync video and audio later in another video editing software.

I think you may try some video/audio converter, I am not a expert on piano play, but sometimes i like to convert video files for my PS3.

AppGeeker mov mp4 converter is what i use, it can convert any video/audio files, and has options to merge/split video or audio file, and supports adding subtitles if needed.

There might be some applications out there that does the job, but as of now, this is the one I find very flexible and easy. Most importantly - It works.

she may simply have been recording the piano internally (I guess most DP's have that function....mine does)and synced that against her video, that would have been the easiest option.
You could always post on the youtube clip and ask
Problems with piano are 90% psychological, the other 10% is in your head.

I really appreciate the replies. Don't really have time to go through all of the riga-ma-row. Will try using phone as an option first.

I sometimes record either on a CD or a tape my current progress on the piano to see whether or not a piece sounds "good enough" for my own criteria or whether I have to get it better here or there... I do this because I have no teacher...

...and I wonder if anyone knows how to transfer a piece I have played & recorded on a CD and "download" it from the CD to the computer?

I am not quite "au fait" with computers - and I would like to find out - for the future - how to "download" from this CD to my computer and then "download" it here?

Does anyone know how to go about this or is it technically not possible?

Thanks from Kristina.

It's usually as simple as navigating to the CD in Windows Explorer, right clicking on the file you want to save, choosing Copy from the drop down menu, then pasting it where you want to save it. All this is assuming that it's your own home made CD without DRM or copy protection, of course.

Thank you, Dennis,
I am now slowly "getting the hang of it";
my CD is very "home made" (ancient second-hand microphone and all...)
and I use this equipment regularly to check-up my progress/development on my piano etc.;
I was originally trained to use archives for my scholarly researches
and as a result of my original training I came only very late to use computers...
...and this is still new territory to me... Thanks again.
