LOL. I already have two of those. They are directional. Correct? Dont you think I need one with a broad pattern?
If you did put the audio into the laptop as a FILE/wav or mp3, then you could process the audio >> clean/edit/ compress, using an audio software. But then you would have to sync it back up with the video.
If you send it straight to Movie Maker as a source, its basically the same thing you’re doing now.
You can get adapters to go from your mixer to the laptop line in. You could produce a bit of a stereo field if that mixer has a l/r balance and you’re using several mics.
Sounds like your end use is simple, so therefore I would recommend that you keep the entire setup simple. Stick with the way you’re doing it.
ehehe, no offense Dave. Its just not what I was expecting. I fixed my issue nicely for about 10.
I like those 200.00 adapters, they just aren’t in my cheap arse budget right now. I’d rather spend that 200 on an H2 and not have to worry about adapters.
Ok, I went ahead and figured this out. I got a stereo headphone splitter from local Radio Shack and cut off both female ends to expose the wiring. Black red and white wires on each split.
I found that the shoulder(closest to the cable) of the 1/8″ male is the common for the GS500. The tip of the male headphone adapter is the white left channel and the next slot is the red, right channel for the GS500. Also, the shoulder of the mono ATR55 is also the common with the tip of the ATR55 being the active signal.
This is the setup for the GS500 anyway.
So I got a couple female mono ends and soldered the white from one of the splits to the connection on the mono female to align with the tip of the male ATR55. On the other split, I soldered the red to align with the tip of the other male ATR55. This creates a nice way to get stereo separation onto the audio of the GS500 if you have a use for it in this configuration . And I do.
Total cost for parts about $10.00
Hope this helps someone else in the future.
good god. Surely there is an adapter cheaper than $200.00 that will accomplish this purpose???? The ATR55’s are 1/8″ mono males.
I appreciate the suggestion but good lord…
They work great for the price. Dont forget to turn it on when you start 🙂 and turn it off when you finish. 🙂
Ahhh, great. Thanks….
