Asking Another Question That's Already Been Asked...

Question

Here I am again, asking a question that has already been asked a few times. Sorry to be a pain, and do this again, but; all the responses to those videos are either answered with:

 

- Look at these links. :blink:

 

- Big, long, drawn out answer with graphs/tables/etc. :blink:

 

- Answers with waaay too much terminology that I do not understand. :o

 

So, here's my question: Is it possible to capture my own voice while capturing gameplay? Because my friend and I like to have fun, and do little comedy videos while we play Red Dead Redemption, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, MW3, etc.

 

And the crappy thing is, you can't hear me; but, you can hear my friend and other gamers - which kind of defeats the purpose of making our videos. Now, I know you can later go in and do a commentary voiceover while editing the video; but, where's the fun and authenticity in that?! You don't capture the heat of the moment! ^_^ LoL!

 

I've looked at the FAQ, and seen some people answer this question with a: "No. Not at this time." But, here's part two of my question: Is there a way to by-pass it somehow? Like, I currently use the crappy headset that comes with some Xbox 360s. Are there any headsets that will, like, somehow work, like Turtle Beach headsets or something?

 

Any answers would be greatly appreciated. And, hey, do me a favor. Dumb it down. Like, literally... act like you're explaining this to a child! :P Thank you! I really appreciate it!

Here is one way,look at post #4 in this:

 

http://forums.support.roxio.com/topic/83675-roxio-turtle-beaches/

 

Yeah, kind of what I didn't want as a reply. However, I looked at the link again, and nowhere in it did it say, "Yes. If you use this method, you'll be able to capture your voice live as you capture your gameplay."

 

So, if I go the route with the Turtle Beach headset, will I be able to capture my voice when capturing game play?

 

A simple yes or no would be great.

 

Thanks! :)

Did you read the last post in the link that you didn't want as a reply?

Vaughn Whiskey's last post did not answer your question? If not, it is doubtful that anyone answering your question, will satisfy you.

 

Good luck.

 

grandpabruce: First, I just re-read my comment - I hope it didn't come across as being a smart-&%$. If it did, I apologize. I didn't mean for it to sound that way. And after reading Vaughn Whiskey's last reply again, I don't fully understand. Like I said, I need it explained like you would explain it to a child. Dumb it down for me. I'm totally new to video capturing and video editing. So, while those pictures and charts are helpful, I'm sure, it means absoluely nothing to me. :blink:

 

So, if I purchased Turtle Beaches, or headsets that hook up through a USB port, my Roxio Game Capture HD Pro will pick up my voice when I go back to review my captured footage?

 

Thanks in advanced to whomever can help me out! Sorry to be a pain! :unsure:

Let put in a good word for Laffey17...

 

I worked with him in another Topic and found him quite pleasant to work with -_-

 

Like he mentioned here, he is new to this and a little overwhelmed by all of it - we have all been in that position!!! :wacko:

 

But keep in mind that not all of us even have the hardware or have tested it to do what you want... And who wants to keep typing the same answer for everyone who keeps asking the same question :o

 

The Post (4) that ogdens provided shows you HOW to hook it up with some cautions whereas the Pic I posted here in #5 provides an answer...

 

It can Stream!

 

It CAN NOT Record!

Hmmm... I guess I better give up. I still don't understand.

 

Thanks for the kind words, Jim. I appreciate it.

 

Although the: "It can stream! Not record!" comment doesn't make any sense to me. LoL! The way I took the comment about Turtle Beaches was: If I buy Turtle Beaches, and use those, the Roxio will pick up my voice and I will be able to hear my voice, as well as the other gamers, while reviewing a gameplay that I captured.

 

The picture you posted, Jim, it seems to be referencing Live Streaming. I do not live stream, I just Capture my gameplay, review it, edited it then post it to YouTube.

 

So, yeah. There's my understanding of everybody's answers. If you so choose to venture out again, and try to answer me in a way I'd understand, I'd very much appreciate it.

 

Thanks... again!

What if I were to use my regular headset on my Xbox 360 (just so my friends/other gamers can hear me talk) and also set up a microphone on my laptop and record audio of me talking during the gameplay, save that audio, then when I go to edit a video, overlay that audio file (hoping it'll sync up perfectly)?

 

Does anybody know if that will work? I mean, you can add all sorts of audio to a created video. Why not audio of yourself talking?! :o

 

Have I just discovered something? Or is that kind of a: "Duh, idiot! That's what we've been trying to tell you!" sort of thing? :blink:

If I follow all of that, yes :lol:

 

Although... If you can add a 'regular headset' (Mic & Phones) and the Audio from the mic is passed along the HDMI or Composite connection I would think that it would be there for capture as well as streaming :huh: Can anyone test that out please.

 

Recording the Audio separately then adding into the captured video is "easy enough" although you will have to do a little work to align the 2 so they are in sync ;)

 

Still a shame to have to do that much work!
