    So today I bought an audio interface, webcam, and learned how to mix the song and bass track together and tried to then mix that audio track with the video. I did take video at same time as I took audio, but it is difficult to sync 100% and seems almost unreal because the DI audio kind of takes away from the surrounding track and realism of it. I suppose going forward it would be better to overlay the original webcam audio with it, not sure.

    Let me know your thoughts

    I pre-emptively did another video with no backing track. Cool thing about this is I realized you could pass in the audio interface as the mic for the webcam, so didn't have to do any mixing for this at all.

    Now if only there was a way to add this simplicity when doing backing tracks. Do some people have the backing track going through another mic? For the purpose of bass covers, all everyone really cares about is the quality of the bass track.

    I'll eventually get a better setup. I'm currently transitioning that room from a guest room to an office, but don't want to get rid of the bed until a few months after my baby is born.

    It synced up pretty good. Nice job on your 1st YT video.
