Sony HVR-A1U and external microphones
 
Hi, I haven't been on the forum for awhile and I'm not finding the right place to post a question I have about my Sony HVR-A1U and the use of external microphones.

I want to mic the interviewer and the interviewee in an upcoming video shoot. The interviewee will be on a wireless lav and the interviewer will be on a wired lav. I assume that if I connect the wireless in input 1, channel one, and the wired in input 2, that the wired lav in input 2 will automatically go to channel 2.

The question is, I'm not sure if both mics should be set at "mic", or if the wireless should be set to "line" and the wired to "mic". I heard somewhere that the wireless works better on "line".

Thanks.

I believe you are correct. Wireless receivers output a line-level signal.

Thanks.

I would think that the Sony HVR-A1U forum or the audio forum would be much better than DV Info Net Announcements forum.
