Bit of a noob so please bear with me if I’m asking an obvious question.
I am recording with a HF200 and inputting audio through the external mic input.
I’m outputting the audio to the camera from an M-Audio Fast Track Pro through a TRS output (inputting into the Fat Track PRo with a se X1 Mic).
All I’m getting recorded though is a slight buzz and some very muffled/fuzzy sounding audio.
If I plug the same output into my iPhone and record it sounds fine.
Is it because the m-audio box isn’t outputting the right kind of signal?
Any help much appreciated as I’m really happy with both bits of kit but just trying to get them working together.
Your camera’s input has auto-gain, which is not defeatable in the camera. You need to feed it, -10db, and maybe even -20db. Monitor your signal, and adjust accordingly, with headphones.
