Thread: Capturing audio from two wireless mics to one device.

  1. Default Capturing audio from two wireless mics to one device.

    i currently capture my audio from two sources on two cameras with a mp3
    recorder capturing ambient and all mixed down. The main problem is the
    two Sennheiser FREEport wireless lavalier mics, one connected to the
    hc1 & the other to the FX1, this can be difficult especially when
    one camera is placed one side of a room to the other as monitoring the
    audio can be problematic.

    Has,or does anyone use a beachtek box? have looked at the DX4 varient for use on the FX1, or the Juiced box?

    ion that situation, i've always had the camera op listen to the audio for any drop outs etc. if you need to monitor the audio then you could mix the 2 headphone outputs together and use that. i've always preferred having a separate audio track in post production so i can adjust levels etc.

    My preference in this scenario would to simply connect radios one and two to left and right on the camera. You've said you use and MP3 for ambient, therefore that gives you the ability to plug in and (on the FX1 at least) set the XLR's to separate, set the monitor to L / R split in your cans and bob's your uncle - both mics monitored and both mics recorded.

    The only drawback really is the reliance of one tape. If it does go down, you will lose the lot.

    good point about relying on one tape, never thought of that. That was my intention to connect mic L & R to moniterthe audio.
