      New to this forum and I hope someone here can give me some information and some help on what I am tring to do.

      I have been asked to video a beauty pageant at our local auditorium andcreatea DVD of it.I have no issues with the video itself. I have done video in this place many times. My problem has always been audio. The last time I did a video I used a beachtek device tied to my camera. The beahtek device was plugged into the back of the soundboard(mackie) into the left and rightmain out jacks (could be the left and right aux sends, can’t remember because I haven’t done this in a while). I was told to try the tape out, but if I remember correctly, the last time I tried that the audio wasn’t real clear, but that could have been my fault, because I went straight into the camera mic jack from the tape out. The sound I get is great when they are speaking, but if someone sings, it doesn’t sound to great, it almost sounds flat, no mix of music and voice. I thought about taking a second camera and using it to record the sound and pulling the singing parts from that camera.

      Is there a better way of getting a good mix of speaking and singing?Will a digital recorder work better and if so, what kind?

      I have a Sony HDR-FX1 camera. I also have a beachtek DXA-4. The mackie box is pretty old, it has been in the auditorium now since probably 2000. It is a 24 line. I am not sure what the model number is, but if needed I will see if I can get it.

      Thanks for any suggestions.
