Record Audio and video with your iphone or ipad
« on: August 12, 2019, 09:40:19 AM »
You want to do some covers for youtube but your audio is out of sync and aligning it with a software is tedious and expensive? well, if you have an iphone or ipad you can record quickly directly audio and video in the youtube app using the following stuff:

1- USB Audio interface compatible with ipad (and iphone): I use the roland Rubix22, it's around 60 bucks used or 100 new. There is also the Steinberg UR22 MK2 for roughly the same price. There are cheaper ones but the 2 above have MIDI IN/OUT Ports, which is useful if you want to record MIDI as well. Also note these have only 2 Inputs, so you only be able to record your 2box and whatever you have plugged in your aux in, for instance your phone or mp3 player if you record with an ipad. If you want to record your voice as well then you'll need an interface with 4 inputs and a microphone.

2. Apple Camera Kit USB kit, this goes between your ipad/phone and the audio interface

3. 5V Power adapter with mini usb cable for the audio interface, since the ipad/iphone wont provide enough power to the Audio interface, I use the same iphone charger with a mini usb cable and it works perfectly.

With this you'll be able to record audio and video with decent quality, the downside is that the youtube app won't allow you to add anything like text or other things, you will only be able to trim the video and that's it. However If you want to edit the video afterwards to add text or explanations you can use the built in app "clips" and export the video to imovie and edit it there.

So that's it, record quickly and decently without a computer.
