Back in February, just before the lockdown, I did my first ever live performance at Electronic Music Open Mic in Camberwell. My friend Nick filmed the whole thing on his smartphone, but the sound quality wasn’t great, and there was a lot of background chatter.
Recently I’ve been playing around with video editing using Final Cut Pro X, which has an almost magical ability to synchronise audio and video from different clips. This was exactly what I needed to combine the smartphone video with my direct audio recording from Ableton Live. That means we get the nice clean audio straight from my laptop, mixed in with a bit of the feel of the room itself, with a nice background hubbub at a non-overwhelming level.
