Hi. I want to start making video lessons/reviews for YouTube. I already have an audio interface (MOTU 896HD) that I've been using for years to record my music. Is it be possible to add a webcam and dedicate it to video while capturing audio from my interface? I'm sure that is a software and not a hardware issue so, keeping in mind this is the hardware forum, what HD webcams would you recommend? Also, will I need to upgrade any of my system components (CPU and RAM specifically) to increase my productivity?

First question - Yes, depending on the software (but usually yes), you can have separate devices for audio and video recording.

Upgrading your system - it depends on your current specs, and webcams often have system requirements, so you can check those when you buy a webcam.
