Question about Canon XL1S Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

XL1s and 4 channel audio

I am using 12 bit audio on my XL1s. It allows me to capture on board mic (Audio 1/ ST-1) and 2 channels from wireless mics (Audio 2/ ST-2) all on the same tape. The problem I have is when I import my footage over DV only the (Audio 1/ST-1) channel is captured. Am I missing a function or setting within the XL1? I can't seem to find anything on the internet when I search this topic. When I playback my footage on my TV set the 4 channels are separate across the Audio 1 and Audio 2 outputs. (i.e. I hook up the RCA cable to Audio1 I hear the mic, I hook up RCA cable to Audio2 and I hear the wireless channels.) Why is the Audio2 channel not being imported across the DV link?

Hi!
Unfortunately, Premiere Pro CS3 can only handle two channels of audio at a time when capturing. You could try capturing with Scenalyzer or another program that can handle four channels simultaneously.
Hope this helps!

Mic channels 2 and 3 don't work no sound. mic channels 1 and 4 work okay as well as inputs 5-12. how can i fix this??


There is an internal f ailure and the unit will require servicing. To get by until you can get it fixed, you can get line transformers that will allow the mics to be used on the higher channels.

If you have inadvertently plugged a source into the :insert" jacks of these bad channels by mistake, that may have blown the input op-amps.

A lot of dis-assembly of the board must be done to get to the parts to repair.

Another possibility is if the sliders have gone bad... SAME prognosis for repair.

Set up audio mixer with PC


You must connect:
the main out of the 1202fx, or the ctrl room out of the 1202fx at your power amplifier's input (if there is one)
the line in 11/12 of the 1202fx at your pc's audio card line out. (for playing back)
the cd/tape out of the 1202fx at your pc's audio card line out. (for recording)
in case of a cd, connect it's line out at line in 5/6 (or 7/8, or 9/10) of 1202fx's
some mic at the mic 1 (or 2 or 3 or 4) of 1202fx.
That's the way you're going to have control for:
the mic level from channel 1 (etc).
cd level from channel 5/6 (etc).
pc playback from channel 11/12.
master speakers from main mix or ctrl room.
All the above connections are not absolute and may vary depending on your needs.
About freeware softwares for audio recording and editing I can suggest you:
Audacity (homepage)
Wavepad sound editor (homepage)

In case of a problem or clarification about the connection or the cables, don't hesitate to post.

How do I use 2 mics for the XL2 simultaneously?


Hi, on the left side of the camera you can set 'audio monitor'. Default is channel 1/2. You can choose to listen to 3/4 or 1/2 and 3/4 simultaneous.
In the menu of the cam you can set between 12 bit audio recording or 16 bit. 16 bit only records on channel 1/2 (the front mic). In 12 bit mode you can record audio on 4 channels.
hope this answers a bit of your question

Sound recording with external microphone


An instruction manual is available for download at www.canon.com
Your camera, according to the manual, has a single input for microphones, and in the internal menu, AUDIO DUB has to be set to MIC. IN. when using an add-on microphone. An MA-300 hot-shoe microphone accessory can be used, and then the input controls would be on this device, not the camera. Your camera can also record in two different audio qualities: 16-bit two channel or 12-bit four channel. If you are using an accessory you may need to select 12-bit in the internal setup menu in order to have enough channels to add on the additional microphone(s).
Finally, and hopefully not, the camera may have an internal hardware problem, and so would need to be serviced.

Mic input


have seen a couple of these cameras with this problem.  a defective board inside the camera is the culprit. the board itself costs around $500 plus the labor to replace it.

Need of codes....


Hi I hope this will help http://www.dvcentral.org/tricks.html Tricks 4 XLR ins: Get the Canon MA-300 adapter and get yourself 4 XLR inputs. Perfect for a couple of wireless lavs, a boom, and another mic. Sure, it's less data for the audio channels, but it's plenty for voice recording. Sure, you can't digitize audio 3&4 easily, but it is possible, and it's just so darn useful to have four audio channels in the field. (Also, you can easily mount the wireless lav receivers right on the back of the camera.) Using the Canon on-camera mic via an XLR input: Say you're using a single boom mic, inputting via XLR 1. You've got XLR 2 doing nothing, and the on-camera mic doing nothing. Seems a waste. Well, all you need to do is adapt the on-camera mic to input through XLR 2. A short female-mini-to-male-XLR adapter will do for the audio signal, but the mic needs power. Simple, just get a short micro-mini extender cable, plug one end on to the mic, and the other into where the mic's connector would normally plug, on the camera's handle. Make sure the mic is switched to stereo, and voila, you have a second XLR mic. Monitoring in the field: Though many people told me it couldn't, the XL H1 downconverts to NTSC on the fly during recording, so you can plug a little monitor or deck into the video and audio out jacks and have yourself a video tap. Perfect for the director who wants to see what's going on through the camera. I used a little DV camera, and recorded it all so we could have a playback tape if needed. Very useful. (Note that the output NTSC is anamorphic, stretching the 16:9 image over the whole 4:3 frame. A monitor with a 16:9 switch is useful, or something that automatically adapts, such as what I used, a Sony PD-100 DVCAM camera.) Native slow motion: In a 24F project, shoot 30F and use Cinema Tools to slow down the footage to 24fps for a slight slow motion effect. Use 1/60 shutter speed for a standard look, or 1/30 for a slightly dreamier feel. Good Luck.
