Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera

1 Answer

Sound delay in our webcams when we try to sing together.

My brother and I are musicians. We tried to practice singing and playing guitars together with our webcams. But if I sing with what I hear him playing, he hears me as being behind the beat. The same happens if he sings with me playing. I hear him as if he was singing a fraction of time behind what I play. How can we stop this from occuring?
I'm not talking about an echo. When he plays a note I don't hear it for a split second. It makes singing at the same time impossible.
If you know how to get around this problem I would appreciate your help!

The speed of light and the speed of sound just don't mix well on a webcams. There is a process delay with these cameras. The only remedy I know of is to get a webcam with greater memory capacity. Say, a 3.1meg webcam. The logitech only has 300K of memory and has a slower response time. Recording with a low res window helps too. 160x120 verses 320x240. This helps with less response delay time between cams. Also, using an external mic helps too. You'll need to tweek the distince between the mic and the webcam to sinc the video and sound. Let me know if I can be of further assistence with this. I'll try to help you resolve this.

Learning to playbluegrassmusic on my guitar,and learning how to sing bass......


Most of the bluegrass is in your thumb, you play the bass strings with your thumb, and leave the rest of the job for the rest of your finger. Johnny Cash and Mark Knopfler are the two dudes who opened my eyes to bluegrass rythms. Also Johnny Can help you a lot on those bass tones try singing daily as deep as you can but don't stretch it out, just as much as you feel comfortable everyday and after a while you'll get the Barry White kinda bass sounds. And for the bluegrass thing just check the internet out there are tons of high quality in depth reviews of the thumb picking style, and try playing to a four bar backing drum track and follow it up with your thumb. And that's the rule of the thumb.

Do I need more than one Wii remote for Band hero Wii????


you need a wii remote for each instrument and the microphone. you need one remote for the drums, one for the bass guitar player, one for the guitar, and one in close proximity to the microphone user. you have to set a wii remote near the microphone once the microphone is plugged into the USB port in the back of the wii console. i think there is something like a 10 foot radius meaning if the wii remote is too far from the microphone it will disconnect. so you can do only one instrument per wii remote you are using.

My webcam works fine but the microphone crackles all the time


Normal 0 Two things can cause static.
First, If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causing distortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Second reason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphone between the two it will cause distortion and static.
Not knowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze the problem.
So hope this is of some help. Bud

I got my daughter Wii Rockband-she is so mad and me to because we can't figure out how to let her play it-like play the guitar without the microphone-everytime she tries to play it, it says it doesn't...


Rock Band is a 4 player game, each player taking their own role. They can choose from Guitar, Bass, Drums or Microphone. If your daughter wants to play guitar and sing at the same time, she will need to play a multiplayer game and use 2 Mii profiles, one for guitar and one for singing. 
A single player cannot play 2 instruments using the same Mii either. You must use separate profiles.
