Ref. book for audio and 24p issues

Ran across this today. Thought it might be of interest to some. Will try and go have a look at it this week. Could be a "must have" resource. Or not. :-) Have always heard that the DVX, which it mentions, has sync drift issues after 20 min., and this book claims to have some insights into all of that.

If anybody is interested, the site is:

Basic audio adapter question (3.5 mono to 3.5 stereo)

Ok, here is the problem, my Optura 20 takes in a Stereo Mic input

I have this cheap Azden EX-413 mono microphone.

I have to plug in the mic's connector into the camera's jack 3/4th the way in to get sound from both the left and right channel. If I plug it in all the way, there is absolutely not sound. I'm guessing this is due to the fact the camcorder takes in a stereo input and the mic is mono. So I cut up a extra minijack stereo cable up, seperated the three wires. Since the stereo plug has 3 contacts, L, R, G, I combined the L and R. Then with the combined L and R I connected it the the tip of the mono mic's top contact. Then I took the ground of my cut up stereo wire and connected it to the ground contact of my mono mic. It still does not work, why?

edit: So in theory, this adapter from radio shack should work,

Catalog #: 274-374

Provide mono output from stereo jack!

Accepts 1/8" mono phone plug
Fits 1/8" stereo phone jack

but the thing is, i'm going the other way around, mono mic to stereo input!

Any 3.5mm (1/8")mono to stereo adapter will work.

anyone use the Sony WCS-999 wireless lav mic?

the Sony WCS-999 is supposed to be their comsumer level wireless lavalier mic.

Has anyone used it and can you report your results? ARe you using it with a XLR system?

I just bought one...hoping it's good enough for short films or documentaries.

Ok I got it yesterday. Works great. Nice quality.

But one question, this may apply to all lavaliers. I get better audio whent he subject holds the mic up to his mouth, than with it on his chest. That is a given.

Are there mics out there that will do an outstanding job while on the chest? I'm thinking about volume and quality.

Apple soundtrack

Is it worth the money? I have a friend that is a pretty damn good composer so I can record his keyboard straight into the computer, but it sounds like a keyboard. Is Soundtracks quality really good? I am thinking I can use them in comjunction with each other.

Thanks Ken.

What about this one:

Basic question: what gender connectors do I need on the cable? I am planning to run it through the Shure A96F on the camera end so I need a male connector on the camera end of the cable. But what gender needs to be on the mic end of the cable that connects to the K6?

All standard XLR cables have one female end and one male end.
All standard XLR mics have a male output.
Any standard XLR device that receives a signal will have a female input. Standard XLR outs from a device will be male.

The only time this may be different is at some hotel PA installations to prevent someone from using standard cables to input a signal to the house system.

The other use for XLR gender changers is to convert an XLR to TRS cable between inputting or outputting.

Not all adapters are bidirectional, so using a gender changer to reverse the hookup of an adapter may not give the desired result.

Soundtrack is worth the price.
What you need to remember is that the sounds aren't "sounds" as you'd think of midi-triggered sounds from your sound card. They are real recordings of some of the best musicians in the world, recorded (generally) at the better studios available, using very high end equipment. They are actual performances, of actual musicians. Therefore, the quality is almost always very good.

Canon XL1S Audio Setup

I need some assistance in understanding how to set up the Audio for a XL1S. I would like to use the on board mic and a wireless lav. I will be using the Senn EW100 for the wireless. I know the Senn has a mini out put. Do I need additional adapters or will the Senn plug in with a mini to mini cable, and all is well?
