Hello, I own CA 95 . I just need a very high-quality recording and video so he can hear himself.

I need your advice

1. VST midi and camera (or iphone)
2. microphone and camera.( zoom h6 and iphone )
3. Iphone + zoom iQ6.( is it necessary to buy zoom IQ6)
4. record into ca95 render mp3 + iphone.
and blad blad....

So number 3 , 4 maybe economical. I also have the samsung and I will exchange it for the iphone. because most people rate iphone have very high-quality recording and video LOL.

Most people like myself are not professional musicians. I use a Canon Powershot pocket camera on a tripod for video recordings. The audio isn't too bad. Some people would use higher quality computer mic like Yeti from Blue.

The Yamaha P-125 I got recently I can use the line-out to a computer and record the sound with a program like Audacity or WavePad. For just sound recording I can connect the keyboard to a computer directly with an USB cable without having to use an external recording device or a mic.

I use a USB condenser mic attached to my iPhone for video recording. I could record directly on my Yamaha P515 also, however, I like the natural room reverberation sound that gets picked up when I use the condenser mic. I got it from Amazon for around $99 and I bought a connector from Apple for $29 to connect it to my iPhone

Of the options on your list, 4 (USB audio recorder to MP3 file) will produce the best quality recording.
However, the very best is to use the USB audio recorder but save as an uncompressed WAV.

The volume level may be a little low, but Normalising in an audio editor should leave you with a good sounding, high quality recording. If your ultimate goal is to produce performance videos for uploading to YouTube etc. the audio captured in this way can easily be swapped into a video shot on a smartphone etc.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
James

After years of searching for the best(ish) quality audio and video, on a budget, and simple to use without having to sync audio to video in an external program, I have finally come up with the following:

DP > audio interface > Windows 10 PC

Free OBS Studio for audio/video recording, using either a high quality webcam, or for better video quality now using the app Droidcam OBS (very cheap for HD version) this app allows me to use my Samsung phone as a wired or wireless camera, for high quality video.

for VST's I run an output from Cubase into OBS Studio (this does require a few extra steps to get ASIO into OBS)
Or, a VST with a standalone player can be routed into OBS.

Yes , it's ok. Usd only one devices for audio and video so easier. And use smatphone, camera or micphone not best quality recording but IMO narural , more realistic , the live sound..

If your phone has a USB-C port, it should be possible to connect a compatible audio interface to it directly.

Then you just need to connect the CA95's Line Outs to the audio interface and the audio will be captured by the phone in high quality when shooting video.

Cheers,
James

Great advice from Kawai James.

Just to add, that if you are going to mount your phone on a mic stand or similar, it would make it easy to start/stop recording with an inexpensive bluetooth remote button.

If you want to record to a phone while making videos I can recommend a Roland Go: mixer pro. It’s a usb-powered usb-mixer they will work with your phone. It can use the battery from the phone or with batteries. Great little device to get the line out audio directly to the video without editing. ☺️
