If you want to record on the GoPro using an external mic you need a mic adapter for the GoPro. This will let you use the audio out from your mic to plug in to the USB on your GoPro. The alternative is to import video and audio separately into your video editor. This is a very common workflow pattern, and all you really require is a clapperboard or similar ...

The mic input is for your microphone, yes. Microphones have very low output, and a Line input expects a much higher voltage, so you have a low recorded signal. Unfortunately this means your signal to noise ratio is not going to be good, and while there are ways to improve the situation, you basically cannot get away from this. Amplifying the signal will ...

Your Sony Home Theater System probably doesn't support FLAC because it doesn't have the codec to uncompress the FLAC audio files. It kind of depends on the features of your hardware and the settings on whether you are getting the best audio output. Most likely, this is what is happening: Your laptop is decoding the FLAC file to an uncompressed digital ...

First off I think it's a big decision to buy a field recording rig. It's very good that you ask about these things, because it can prevent you from buying the wrong gear for the purpose. But you never mentioned your purpose of buying it in the first place. What do you plan to record? Quiet Ambiences or cars? My question is, is the combination Denecke PS-2 /...

So strange you asked this question 19 days ago. I've had this model in a drawer for 5+ years and only tonight took it out to clean rust from the battery compartment and re-familiarise myself with it. I think the problem for you is that this model is not sensitive enough for voice recording, at a distance, hence having to boost the gain on your PC. I've ...

Don't mount an M10 to your head. You're going to get all kinds of sound transmission / handling noise (i.e. unusable audio). Put it in a shock-mount system akin to a this rycote system and use the windscreen. Yes, they shed, but if you brush them the loose hair will usually come out and then you're good. Yes it's expensive and will cost up front, but it will ...

What I've done in the past is have a couple of cheap (£20) tie-clip mics in a rucksack. If you use a bag with a top flap rather than a zip-up bag, you can clip each mic to either side of the flap, or attach them to the shoulder straps and have all the cables out of sight inside the bag. I've done this for discreet recordings, and for walking around. With ...

I use a Audio Technica AT875R short shotgun mic. It is supposed to be powered with 48V Phantom power, but actually you can power it from the couple of volts plug-in power from the Sony M10 , believe it or not. Obviously, there is a drop-off in performance but it works quite well. The upside is the AT875 produces a large output signal so it doesn't require ...
