And speaking of the video, you mentioned the lens, but somewhere I missed the actual camera.

I know you edit the music in garage band, but what are you using for video?

Thanks again...love what you are doing and I hope you can share more of your great playing and recording tricks.

To answer your questions, yes the 4 mics go through the Akai interface and gives me 4 seperate mono tracks.... I would have the option to have 2 seperate stereo tracks (1 for each pair of mics) but i prefer to work from mono.

The camera is a Sony a57 dslr... any camera with interchangeable lens would do. You just want large aperture opening for the shallow depth of field. Btw, for a film look, you want to film at 24fps with 1/50 shutter speed. It makes a whole lot of difference.

And finally, i edit in the sound Logic pro, but any editing program would do as i dont really manipulate the sound coming from the mics. For video, i use Adobe premiere elements (i bought it in a bundle with photoshop elements for photo for 150$). I think i'ld have get the same results using Imovie tho since i didnt really do any fancy stuff in the video editing as well.

Glad you appreciate the info!


Thanks for the update. Looking forward to your next production.

I'm now shopping for new toys... smile

Any suggestions regarding audio interface equipment? I'm currently looking at the Zoom 24.

Anyone know the difference between the Zoom 24, 16, and 8?

Is it just the amount of channels?

I would think I will use between 2 and 4 mics max.

But, which is obvious, this requires a person who holds the camera.



Since I made the above post some 10 months ago, the Glidecam line of gyro stabilizers has been extended to include a smaller and less expensive sibling - the iGlide! I just pulled the trigger on an iGlide ($129) and I am looking forward to see how it is to use it for making piano videos!! Here is a promo for the iGlide:
