thank you for the great video's.  now, if i could get my mini down to below 500rpm, i would be set.  that wipe on poly is real nice stuff.  i have used it on flat projects for a few years.

Hey Bert,that was great,but I would like to make a suggestion and Please don't take it the wrong way,but I think you should eliminate the back ground music.I have a hearing problem (no jokes please)and back ground noises make it difficult to understand the audio.Again though ,I think you did a great job.

No offence taken.  I will keep that in mind for the next videos.  It took a long time to put these videos together, so for these one's I'll leave the background music in, ok?

Those songs were played on the piano by my boys.  Titles are:

Aerith's Theme
Konoyo no Uta
and
Bloody Tears

If you want, I can probably email you the actual songs.  I have them saved on my computer.  I will require your email though.

Piano music sounds great!  Your boys are good musicians.  If I could make a small recomendation, keep the gain (or recording volume) low when recording the piano and it will help take off some of the percussive sounds when striking the keys.  Ive found that its sort of a balancing act when it comes to finding the perfect distance to record from.  I know im still searching.

One recording thing I do when recording piano is (if its a grand) open the lid and place the mic just outside the opening of the lid, then equalize the sound.  If its a stand up, I just keep the gain down and put the mic at a descent distance.

Doing this will give you more freedom when mixing the sound to the video tracks.  You can also pan the music to the back and make sure the audio from the video is panned forward.  This will help the music blend more and bring the audio from the video to the foreground.

Believe me I understand what an undertaking it is to add audio.  Ive been in recording situations were setup has taken hours.  You did a great job putting it together, and im definitely going to try this finish technique.  I love mirror finishes and that one looks awesome!

Thanks Rodolfo.  I realize that the recording does have that hard-key strike, but my kids were the one's who recorded them.  I wasn't there.  I tried reducing the volume in Premiere Elements to as low as I could, but unfortunately, I couldn't lower it more as the program would only go so low, and any lower the program would put the volume at zero.  I tried anyway, but was at the mercy of the program.  I think otherwise Ken would NOT have had a problem hearing my voice over the piano.  I knew it was touchy.
