Clip-on Tie Microphone

Hi, I recently bought one of these microphones to use with my new Canon XL2 because I'm shortly going to be shooting some interview-style footage.

However even though it's a stereo mic it only has one pin but the external microphone plug has two pins. Consequently the audio is only recorded onto 1 channel.

Is there anyway around this other than buying a new microphone? I also have Adobe Audition 1.5 for my audio editing.

The mic is definately working fine because I tested it on my Panasonic GS400, then loaded the audio into Audition and it's recorded onto two channels nicely.

Thanks for any advice :-)

Most lav mics are mono as far as I know, at least the ones I use, especially when you use them with XLR.

Just convert the single recorded channel to stereo, this should be fairly easy to do with Audition... or Premiere for that matter.

Adrian,

When you brought the audio from the Panasonic into Audition, you said there were two channels. Are you sure Audition didn't import the audio as dual mono (the same thing on left and right channels)?

Also, make sure the switch on the XL2 is set to record the audio to Ch1/Ch2 and it'll go on both channels.

Thanks guys, will try that. Not quite sure how to convert the audio to stereo in Audition though. That said I've never needed to do it before so never tried.
