Can I make multitrack music videos in home studio?

by JPinMV / November 12, 2012 3:36 AM PST

How can I best record a song track as a video, then overdub a second track (say, self and a few friends doing a harmony part), then synch the two (or more) videos to playback together on split screen, or cutting from screen to screen? Where can I learn how to do this (on a Mac)? Thank you for any suggestions!

I'll skip all the usual and write yes.

But where to learn this? Many folk attend college and some will take classes while others just dive in.

I can't tell which path you'll take but once in a while you find folk that think they can do this in 5 minutes or less. As the man said "only in the movies."

'multitrack music recording on a mac' brings back some very useful hits in google.

A good software

You'll need a very good software and a fast computer to process all.

Steinberg has a lot of good software for music studios, and Nuendo may be the one for you.
