I'm not sure if this is relevant to this forum, but the whole Hydrogenaudio forums have been helpful in the past, so I figured somebody will probably have a resolution.

Basically, I'm going to record a video of myself and a friend playing some music, and I want the audio to be as high a quality as I can. He'll be playing acoustic guitar and singing, and I'll be drumming and triggering samples on my MPC1000. I want to capture the music we're playing on the spot. I could run a line from my MPC to the computer and record its output digitally as I play it, and record another track from the mic to the computer, but because we both need to actually hear what I'm playing wouldn't I come through on the vocal and guitar recording? That's the problem I'm imagining.

So far the best idea I have is to record the video and set up the mic in an even part of the room, then make sure our levels are audibly as they should be (like a live show would be) and record everything through the mic. After the performance is done, I'd maybe EQ the audio to the best quality I could, and drop that into the audio track of the video. It'd be better than the camera audio, at least. The camera might actually have an XLR input too.

I've been watching this girl and trying to figure out how she's recording it all without getting feedback or recording everything else that's playing whenever she uses the mic. Or is this all just a case of yeah, she is recording all the other stuff, but it's just not noticeable?
