  1. Hi all. I have been using the Zoom H4n as a portable audio interface on shoots. I've been using a RodeLink wireless lav for single presenter shows and used the built in mics for shows with more then one presenter, but as it's not very good from a distance I have bought a Sennheiser MKE600. What I was wondering, for all you audio genius', was is there a way that I can have the Sennheiser MKE600 plugged into input 1, and another mic (for arguments sake say a sm58) plugged into input 2 whilst recording two separate audio files? I know you can adjust the gain of each pre production but it would be really helpful to be able to record using both mics and then be able to plug my sd card into my computer and have a file for each mic. So far the only way I have found is to set the H4n to MTR and record as a multi track, but its not as user friendly as the four track interface as it gives you less room to scope the gain levels... If anyone has any other suggestions then that would be greatly appreciated. All the best Lew
  2. So I am still very new to film making. Last year the only camera I had was a GoPro and I decided that I wanted to do CInematography for the rest of my life so I decided to skip DSLRs and by a blackmagic cinema camera. I have spent the past 4 months learning how to film and colorgrade and I finally feel ready to start getting audio but I have no idea what to mics and audio equipement to buy? Does anybody know what mics I should get if I want to get good audio and keep the camera run and gun. I'm in college and I film by myself so I want to be able to just throw all the gear in my backpack show up at location and be ready to shoot in 2-5 minutes. My budget for audio is $500-$600.
  3. Hi everybody. Am not a sound guy, and my knowledge is very limited. But I'm putting together a nice gear set for my Black Magic Pocket Camera. And now I'm on SOUND. I've bought the Rode NTG2. And now I need advice on a cost-effective PREAMP. I've found the PULSE DUAL CHANNEL AMPLIFIER: http://www.astounded.com/pulse-mpre-dual-dual-channel-microphone-preamplifier.html And might 'sound' crazy, but I've got the idea to use this pedal as it might be a good solution: http://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Behringer-PB100-Preamp-Booster-Pedal/6BK?origin=product-ads&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=&utm_campaign=PLA+Behringer&utm_content=Yb7xhCqt|dc_pcrid_39000656599_plid__kword__match__#full-des I wonder which you would advise me. Or any others, since they could be poewered by a 9V battery, making my kit really portable. I'll shoot a documentary, so sound quality is primordial. I know from various posts the sound input in the pocket camera is very low. So need gain/amplifier. Also, I need to buy the CABLES, and I wonder if I buy them BALANCED or not balanced? Thanks everybody. Appreciate if someone could help on this as I have to buy this soon before travelling next week. F
  4. Hello there! FIRST OFF: WARNING; I am complete NOOB in this field so expect to see something really bad. I am just posting this to get some basic feedback on how to present myself on video (how I should stand, look into the camera, how I should move my face muscles when I speak and so forth), some lightning changes, editing changes, etc.,. My purpose of shooting video is appearing as a "spokesperson" (so yes, I am definitively wearing the wrong outfit). I will get better clothing, another mic instead of the one inside my camera and a complete white background since my camera has "wrong" color sampling 4:2:1 for using green screens (if I understand things correctly). I just wanted to try to shoot something and edit some in Adobe Premiere Pro CC to get some feeling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63vvsATq9U8 Film was shoot with: Canon LEGRIA HF G25 in Cinema Mode (a button you can choose; this one, auto or manual mode). I also used two softboxes which is why you see two shadows (and I added artifical lightning in Adobe Premiere Pro CC, just to play around). I added used "expander"-preset inside "Dynamics" which is an Audio Effect in Adobe Premiere Pro CC to cut away all background noise which the camera otherwise pick up. I'm deciding on whether to get a shotgun microphone or TRAM 50 lavalier. What are your suggestions? I am also curious on how to do with the lightning, how close or far away I should be with the camera so I can use the "rule of third" (standing in the middle just look like a poor mugshot if you ask me; my room is about 3,5 meters wide where I stand; yes I will shoot in my apartment). I will also get some simple lightning above my head so I can "pop out" of my, upcoming, white background. Feel free to give harsh but well-meant suggestions on what I can change 'till my next video besides the obvious clothing, hairstyle, added make-up and such. I am very excited to hear from you professionals and highly experienced film- and/or promotional video makers. And yes, you may laugh your butt off at my bad video! ;-) Take Care & Have An Awesome Day! / Max K.
  5. Just bought this MXL 550/551R Condenser Ensemble Microphone Kit, Red with Chrome Grill. First time buying a mic. It's internally wired so do we need to buy cables and phantom power? Also any other tips for using it would be great.
