    Kris, that sounds really good! It is a webcam mic? Wow.
    The good thing about them (outside of not having to deal with a Mic) is they usually record in stereo.
    What web cam is it if you don’t mind me asking?

    Great playing—lovely fluid lines.

    I think the signal is too high. I hear digital clipping on the louder passages. It doesn’t sound like guitar amp distortion. I’d suggest leaving more headroom when you record. You can raise the level later if it’s too a bit low, but if it’s clipped there’s no way to recover.

    If you don’t hear the clipping in the original file, I guess it’s possible that it’s clipping in my player (an iPad), but no commercial recordings ever clip for me. I think commercial recordings usually leave just a bit of headroom in case some playback devices can’t handle full volume level. I usually normalize my recordings to peak at 2 or 3 dB down for that reason, but I’m not sure what the pros do.

    More info in headroom.

    Hi Joe D,
    Koss mic -I've bought it few years ago.It is small mic for computers.
    Web camera is not expensive...about $20 I do not see any name on it.
    thanks

    Hi KirkP,
    Thanks.
    I think I have to buy a new video recorder software.I use old Movie maker-it is very simple/win 7/.
    I think I can work more about sound/I mean audio/ with more poffesional video soft.
    Thanks a lot for suggestions.

    I occasionally use Movie Maker for editing videos, sometimes dubbing audio files over a videos or slide shows. But I didn’t know it was possible to record or edit an audio file on it.

    Since you apparently are using a PC, I’d suggest you try Audacity, which is freeware.

    I do all my audio editing on it. I haven’t tried recording with it, but I’m sure it’s possible and will help insure that the peaks never exceed the headroom. There’s a bit of a learning curve, but it’s worth it. I only learned to use the basic functions add two or three of the most useful plugins.

    But the software can’t recover a clean signal if it was clipped before it got there. You need to make sure the audio interface to your PC doesn’t ever clip. When you play back the raw recording it may seem a little too quiet, but then you can bring the level up to listenable volume in the audio software, which in Audacity is called “normalize.”

    Thanks.I think about Movavi Video Editor.
    It has more audio options including"normalize".

    The tone of it is very nice, but I agree with KirkP that there's clipping. So I you should bring the levels down a bit. What guitar are you playing on this?

    Hi John,
    I am playing hollow-body Hamadyk guitar on this.
    There's clipping...I know.I am working on new set up for few days.
    Thanks
