Default Video from one source, audio from another?

Are there any programs (preferably free or at least cheap) that can record audio from a microphone jack, and video from another source? I'd like to try recording that way so i can have the sound come through a direct input and the camera recording sync with it.

Reaper does Audio and Video - I would assume it would let you choose the source, but I'm not sure. The discounted version (personal use) is $40. http://reaper.fm

It's very common to combine video and audio from separate sources after they've been captured. I've done posts about it in my blog (see my sig below).

The Zoom Q3HD has a line input that makes it easy to feed outside sources while shooting video. Blog posts on that too.

I have used a Logitech Pro 9000 webcam that allowed me to capture video while capturing audio from another interface device. This one was shot that way: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbF1GRvC-00

There are undoubtedly many other solutions. What equipment do you have now? What experience? What budget? What goals?

Here's an inexpensive, easy method for separate audio and video:

1) Set up a camcorder to record video and set-up a separate DAW for recording audio;

2) Play something and start recording both the video and audio;

3) Mix, finalize your audio;

4) Open some kind of video editing program, like Windows Movie Maker, and import the video clip and the audio;

5) Mute any audio that was recorded on the camcorder;

6) Edit clips as necessary;

7) Sync the audio with the video;

8) Get beer and listen to final product;

9) If necessary, repeat step 8 . . .


Here's an example of something I recorded using this method. All told, took about an hour and a half to set up, record, mix, edit, finalize . . .

To make the syncing easier on yourself, use something as a clapper near the beginning.

Something like a pair of hands pointed at the camera works great!

I do what Dark Eye Jumbo mentions. I record into my DAW and film with a digi camcorder. Then I use Song Vegas Home version to combine them.
Very easy , you just have to be sure to set the audio sampling for the DAW which is adjustable to match the audio sample rate of the camera which is usually fixed.
I set out to do and figured out in one evening
