Ok im trying to sort out an audio setup for doing band interviews
My camera is a Canon HF200 and im looking at buying a Juicedlink Mixer with Phantom Power and 2 XLR Inputs.
Now the interviews I do can vary from just me and 1 person and me and maybe 4 people so need something that will work for all situations.
Because Ill only have 2 XLR inputs (Cant afford to fork out for one with 4) im trying to work out the best way to do it.
Should I get 2 fairly sensitive mics and just get people to hold them so to get an all round sound
or would it be better to have one interview mic and boom over or one mic and a shotgun on the camera?
Just looking for advice on best setup to do and also any recommendations on any mics would be great. Im on quite a budget so any semi decent cheap ones wud be good.
Also looking at what mite be a good mic setup for recording live gigs
Ive been looking at maybe the Rode Video Mic or the Audio Technica At822
I would be filming everything from soft music to proper screaming metal so need something that's ideally not gonna peak and distort the sound. I know obviously getting a line from the desk is the most ideal but alot of the time that wont be poss.
Thanks for reading and any advice would be awesome
