    I mostly use a Tascam DP006 multi track recorder. Most of the time I use just one track. I use the internal microphones most of the time on my recorder. I transfer the audio to my PC for further editing. For Chariots of Fire which I just put up for Season 251, I used the larger Tascam DP008 which is an 8 track recorder and I needed 6 of the 8 tracks for it.

    I record the Video separately on a Panasonic Video Recorder and combine the two in my movie editor.

    My PC runs Linux so I use open source software; Audacity for audio editing and Open Shot for movie editing.

    If I'm away from home I'll record direct on to my iPad. I use a movie App called Movie Pro which I was recommended and it's free. It has basic editing facilities and the results have been pretty good using it.

    I use my GoPro camera and the GoPro movie editing software. On the rare occasions I want to do multitracking and stuff, I use a cheap knock of condenser mic that I got off eBay and Audacity.

    When I use effects, I'm running through the uke through the effects processor module of a Yamaha MOX-6 synthesizer and playing the output through a pair of M-Audio speakers that are off-camera to the right. The Canon's microphone picks up both the true uke sound and the sound coming out of the speakers.
    Uke can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find uke get what you need!

    Acer Laptop; Samson Meteor Mic; Logitech C615 Wecam and software; Windows Movie Maker; Youtube Editor, because it has better filters than Movie Maker.

    I have yet to record a season. I wanted to participate in the classical season, and then got sick...and then got sick again recently. My body has trained itself to make me sick via my voice, as I continue non-stop if anything else is wrong. When I can't sing or speak, my life as a music teacher is altered and I have to slow down.

    My set-up is to record on my iPad, because video is video, and then to use the Lightning to USB dongle to attach a Blue Snowball mic. The Snowball is bigger than I thought it would be...and would love to purchase the new Shure MV88.

    My primary set up is thus: Condenser mic into my Yamaha mixer (CH1). Then out the headphone jack of the mixer to the line-in on my Zoom Q3HD.

    Secondary (as of late) is: Vocals go into my TC Helicon Play Acoustic the out to the Yamaha mixer. Ukulele plugged directly into my Digitech Trio Plus then onto the TC Helicon. The TC Helicon has separate outputs for MIC and Ukulele which I run into separate channels of the Yamaha mixer (Ch2 and Ch3). The Trio plus has a separate output for the Drum and Bass that it produces which I send to the Yamaha mixer (CH4). Then out the headphone jack of the mixer to the line-in on my Zoom Q3HD.

    I can leave both these set ups connected and choose in the moment which I need for the song I'm doing.

    There is a new device coming out soon...the latest version of the Glif. It's a camera mount for iPhone, and just about any other phone. Previous versions (I have the first and the most recent...and placed an order for this).

    This is what I have been waiting for with the iPhone since I bought the original Glif.

    For my iPad, I use an AirTurn stand and Manos mount...I also use this set-up when playing from my iPad. The link is for the whole kit...

    I run a low tech $15 web cam and a $15 condenser mic. Recorded with Debut and mixed and processed on Video Pad software. I could have goten by with just the web cam as it's mic is pretty good but the external mic allows me to emphasize the voice over the uke. I'm not sure that's a good thing though.

    My Uke Buddy Gary has a 8" Amazon Fire tablet and it does a pretty good job and is easy to operate. My 7" fire has to have an external mic, so I thought I'd try it with my condenser mic.

    Most of mine, from the past, have been my smartphone, propped up with books. More recently, I've been able to actually use my laptop for this kind of thing. I'm using a fairly cheap laptop, and Cyberlink YouCam as my software (I think my laptop came with it stock.) Hardware is a Microsoft LifeCam for video, and a Blue Yeti microphone for audio. I quite like the result. Though, there IS some limiting factors due to the laptop's lack of power. But even with that, I like it.
    Check out my stuff. I promise it's not THAT bad.
