Question about Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX Personal Web Camera
I have PC Vista. Logitech 2MP QuickCam Pro 9000 webcam. Using Sony Vegas Video 8.0 and external mic (web cam mic muted).
I am trying to record live sound and vision (singing). When sony vegas opens up the capture window before I even start recording there is an electronic sound like a stone dropping down a mine shaft and hitting the sides every 3 or 4 seconds! When I record through the webcam I can hear myself 1 second behind what I have sung, this is fine when singing one note however I am singing a multi note phrase so it's almost impossible to ignore. I then record a harmony in a different clip (against the original clip playing through vegas) then I put all the harmony clips together in vegas and make each clip small so it can be seen on the one screen (makes it look like split screen). Before I edit the individual clips the sound and vision are out of sync, so I then have to spearate the sound and vision in Sony Vegas and line up the sound and vision. I cannot edit the sound any further (add echo or reduce hiss) as these effects make the clip shorter or longer and then I have to line it up again in vegas. My speakers are off as is the logitech mic (muted) and I am just using headphones. So I have no idea where the echo (feedback) is coming from. Q1. How do I stop this weird echo/sound delay, both prior to recording (in pause mode) and during the recording. Q2. How do I get the sound and vision to be the same and not have to manually realign. Many thanks.
