Sorry if this has been asked a million times but I didn't find a thread more focused on producing material to go up to youtube...
- This applies to Windows OS -
I have recorded some sounds + video to post on youtube in the past using old school software such as VirtualDub and Audacity and I find the whole process a pain in the behing. I don't find audacity very intuitive to use especially when synching the audio with a backing track, zooming and general user friendliness.
So I was looking for a better way to do this.
I have tried Cubase which seems to be industry standard but I find it extremely complex.. after some 10 uses I still couldn't grasp the basics. and I didn't take the time yet to learn the details however if I can find something that does the same with less effort then the better!
I'm running on a laptop without a mouse.. just the touchpad.
So far I've read about Reason, Reaper, Nuendo, ProTools.. and the list goes on. Which one of these in your opinion is the easiest to use without sacrificing flexibility ? I want to be able to play the guitar with my POD over a backing track and record the result, possibly ajudsting sections or re-recording sections later. If I can use VST plugins or EZ drummer to add my own drum tracks or synths and whatever then even better
Eventually I want to synch the audio to video... again what's a good product to do this ? Heard about Sony Vegas but I'm sure there's more.. any hints ?
