Hey guys, I'm a somewhat-famous bassist on YouTube. If you've seen a bass video by MrBrawl, that would be me Well, my purpose in coming here is that, I'm formulating a Christmas list. I'd really like to step up my game in my videos, because I've always done video and recordings the "old-fashioned" way: have the song playing in the background while I play over it, all one take. However, most covers I see have the song overlayed, mostly through the implementation of Windows Movie Maker or something simple like that. My next problem is, I'm running Windows 7, which will not be compatible with Windows Movie Maker and is instead supposed to get some new bogus movie maker called Windows Live Movie Maker or something like that. Couple these things with the fact that I have nothing to record with (no cords to plug into my computer/etc.), and I'm really at a loss. I've usually never had that much of a problem with recording as I've done it, but I feel I'm not getting the views and ratings I deserve (hope I don't sound too arrogant here, but it's what I really believe!) because of volume and sound quality issues. So my question this time is, what kind of software should I ask for for Christmas? I tried Audacity once but it seemed really complex, for me anyway. I may have tinkered with it incorrectly, but it might also have been due to the fact that it wouldn't recognize my microphone...I dunno. I just need something easy to use or easy to learn to use that will produce fine-quality recordings to use for my YouTube videos. Nothing too fancy, yet something of worthy quality. Any suggestions guys?
