Keyboard to Iriver
 
My friend is an excellant keyboard artist who has played at many weddings. I would like to use his music as background music for my videos . I have a IRVER 885, how do I connect his keyboard to my IRIVER for recording ? He has given me his permmision, and I will type his name in my credits on the finished videos.

i'm guessing here, but his keyboard should have an audio out section, in stereo L and R. You'll need a wire that goes from 2 (left and right) from his keyboard to 1 (line in) into your iriver. Radioshack or some online reseller will have this wire. Check it out before you buy tho, most likely itll be this sort of a config..

I gather you're talking about using his music as a background score rather than asking about how to capture the music live during a wedding etc. So why take the extra step of recording to the iRiver? You're editing your video on your computer, right? Have him bring his keyboard over for the recording session and plug the keyboard audio line output into the "line-in" of your computer's sound card and record his performance directly to your hard drive. You didn't say what software you use but many video editing programs can also capture the audio as a separate audio wav file. There's also software like SoundForge, etc, that's made specifically for recording and editing audio. There's an excellent freeware program called Audacity that is a good choice to use as your recording program and you can get very professional results with it. Whatever software you use, you'll get far better results and have much more control over the recording process than recording to the iRiver and then importing those files into the computer.

Thanks to all . The reason I want to record his music ,is that I'll have him do various types of music . Distance is also a problem. Again thanks to all

Not suggresting you don't record him, far from it. But since (I presume) you'll be getting together for the recording session if you use your iRiver, why not record directly to your computer using its audio interface instead? You'll get a better recording.
