Zoom H1

I shot a wedding last Saturday using the Zoom H1 as my back-up recorded. When I played it back after the wedding all I heard was the groom’s heartbeat. Can someone share with me what are the best settings when using the H1 with a Lav mic.

Auto level should be off. The H1's auto leveling blows.

Gary, it may be a long shot but did your groom by chance have a pacemaker?

It would have surprised me because many are radio controlled and users are sometimes recommended to avoid radio mics anyway.

You sure you had the lav mic selected and not the Zoom's own? - I have the H2 and never had a problem (too bulky for a jacket pocket however)
