    Comparing the sound of a movie captured by a Sony Dsc H10 camera, with a sound recorded on PSR e433 and then synced with a movie made simultaneously.



    There is a clear difference between the two sounds. In the sound of the camera there is a glaring clarity and brightness of the piano's timbre, with a clear sound perception of the sound of the drums. In the registered sound made on PSR you hear a softer, velvety sound with the piano and battery sounds balancing each other. They are very different auditory sensations. What is the best? Which one is the most correct? I do not know.

    Synchronization was done in the Camtasia program, following the instructions of Sync Piano Video To Audio Recording in:

    Using an audio interface to connect the keyboard to a computer, and using a DAW to record the keyboard's audio, should give the best (most accurate) results. I've been using an inexpensive Behringer UCA222 audio interface for this, which required buying a TRS-to-RCA cable for connecting my keyboard to the audio interface. It gives me a cleaner-sounding recording than when I was just connecting the keyboard straight to the computer. :)

    One thing Oriane.

    If you are recording from an acoustic piano instead of an electronic keyboard, then my advice would be to use an electronic piano pickup, such as this one

    http://www.yamahiko.info/en/products-2/piano-pickup

    or this one

    http://www.schattendesign.com/piano.htm

    or this one

    http://www.kksound.com/products/purepiano.php

    Using a pickup transducer eliminates all external noise and vibration from the recording and turns your grand piano into an electronic instrument for recording the same as the pickups on an electric guitar allow the strings to sound without hearing the creaking of the wood or the thumps and bumps on the body during a performance.

    Edit >>> BTW, installing one of these systems is probably not a DIY job and best left to a professional piano tuner/technician. In fact, if you already employ a piano technician to maintain your instrument you might want to ask him what he recommends.

    Gary ;)

    Hey, Gary, I did not have that information. Thanks buddy. I say this because I have a vertical Fritz Dobbert piano, which I like to play, especially when I'm alone at home. I find this information valuable and I will study it closely in the near future. There are so many possibilities, right? I liked it, for the convenience of the Schatten P2 Piano Pickup. My son will be in NY in February and will bring me a Q2N camera; After that, I'll see what to do. Thank you Gary.
