    Okay I'm trying to figure out a way to do this....
    I make hiphop music and I wanted to make a video with me creatin a song from scratch. Issue is, the sounds of me hitting my drum machine come out clearer than the finished product from my speakers X_x
    So I'm trying to figure out a solution....
    There's videos (links below) of people making instrumentals where the computer audio, im guessing the input from whatever program they are working on, is synced with the video of them making the track....
    How exactly would I do this on a mac?
    examples:

    why don't you get a 8th inch to 8th inch cable and plug one end into your headphone computer jack and the other into camera mic input, and then edit it later?
