I'm going to be auditioning for G.I.T. soon, and I was wondering what the best affordable video recording set up would be for an optimum sound quality result.

Thanks.

You can get a webcam capable of HD recording for under $50 if you shop around. What type of setup if any do you have now? What type of amp are you using and do you have a mic or interface?

I don't have any type of recording set up at the moment, I mean I could work that into the budget as well, I'm looking to spend about 100-300 dollars on the setup for future youtube recording after the audition.

Currently I am using a Marshal AVT 50h Halfstack. I would be recording on an American Strat.

Might want to try Riffs and Recording. I don't think the quality is all that important as long as they can tell it's you playing.

Quality matters to me my friend, I am a tone chaser.

Sorry I wasn't able to get back to you it got late. As I said before you can get a HD capable webcam for under $50 if you do your homework.
That will take care of the video. Now for the audio. If I'm not mistaken the Marshall AVT has a emulated line-out. To save some money you can try running that line-out into the line-in on your PC, and recording with a program like Audacity. I get great results like that, but it all depends on the line-out of your amp. Some sound good direct recording, and some don't. If you can't get a good sound that way, then you might want to look into getting yourself a mic and mixer.

Here's the camera I use, and its under $50
Logitech C500 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16826104316

I record my audio direct from the line-out of my amp to the line-in of my PC. I record with Audacity and mix with Mixcraft. Here are the results - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwm5ilQtplU

Thanks for the advice. Yeah my AVT does have an emulated line out.

I'm probably going to grab that webcam for sure as it is a great price.

Question though, where is my line-in on my PC?

Will I need a jack adapter that goes into the mic input?

It is a great webcam, I've had no problems with mine since I bought it.
The line-in should be on the back where your audio inputs are. If you don't have a line in you can use the mic input. You will need a 1/4" to 1/8" adapter, but they can be had for around $2.00 at most electronic stores. Even my local Wal-Mart has them.
