How to sync your audio & video.
To improve the quality of your DJ video's it is better to record your audio and video separately. The microphones on most camera's are not that good so the audio quality can be poor and when you record the sound from the room through your camera you also pick up all the extra sounds like the clicking of the crossfader (when you're scratching). The solution is to record the audio straight from your DJ set (mixer or controller) to the audio interface on your computer. This means connecting a xlr or rca cable from the output on your mixer to the input of your audio interface.
After you record the audio on your computer with software like Audacity (free) you now have to lay that audio under the video footage. This can be done with video editing software. I'm using Adobe Premiere Pro on my Mac and I used Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum on my Windows computer.
In this video I show you how to sync your good quality audio with the video footage.
