How do I record the audio of three seperate programs into three seperate tracks?
I'm an aspiring Youtuber and I'm banging my head against the wall at what I thought would be a simple problem.
I want to record a video game and its audio, Skype, and my microphone; but I want the audio from all three to end up on separate tracks so I can edit them individually.
I've figured out a SUPREMELY irritating workaround that involves a second computer and two instances of Audacity on top of my video recording program, but I still have to sync it manually by enabling microphones in all three and clapping my hands rhythmically so I can find that noise on the waveform. Plus, I really don't want to have to export audio from an entirely different computer and transfer it every single time I record.
I know that it only takes about 10~ extra minutes per recording, but I sometimes want to record six+ games a day and spending a solid hour exporting, transferring, and syncing audio before I even get to the editing part of things is frustrating.
To make things worse, I'm also one of those poor college students who doesn't have a lot of dollars to throw at things. Is there any hope for this?
Sincere thanks for reading,
P.S. I just checked the guidelines, and I know this probably qualifies as commercial in nature since I'd like Youtubing to eventually be my job, but I'm still getting off the ground with my grand total of 10 cents made from it. I'm honestly just trying to exhaust every resource trying to figure this out. If you reject my submission, I totally understand. Cheers!
