Hello!

I recently purchased a Roland RP500 (from Costco, equivalent to RP501R I believe) and wondering what is the best way to record what I play. I plan to make a video journal as well and would love any suggestions that you all have!

Thanks so much!

There are a few ways to record--generally, the best are if you can do so straight out of the piano:

1. If there is a USB port that accepts a thumb drive, you can insert one and record digitally to USB; this will be the cleanest, digital recording you can get.

2. You can plug a stereo cable into either the headphone jack, or the aux-out/line-out jacks if the piano has one, and record from that to your computer or recording device.

3. Some DPs have a USB audio interface built-in (the RP501 probably doesn't) which allows you to plug a USB cable directly into a computer and record from the piano that way; I only mention this because most people think this is supported whenever they see a USB port, whereas in reality it rarely is.

Thanks so much. Do you have any suggestions on how to make videos as well?

I think with video, you have to adopt a multi-part workflow for best results. Record the audio using the one of the above methods, and at the same time, record the video separately with your phone/camcorder. Then you load the video into your video editor, delete or attenuate the built-in audio track, and import the separate recording you made. Then you just need to line up and sync the start of the audio with the start of the video, and export it as a new video clip using the recording as the audio track.
