Sony acid pro 6.0, microphone level when recording is way high
When i have an instramental playing and i try and record my mic level is out of control high, to where the left & right levels of the mic are maxed in the red, and you can not make out anything. there is no feedback, and if i record on the mic by itself (no other tracks playing) it is fine. I have to lower the instramental sound level to almost nothing to record, then the mic still picks up the instramental. I record with headphones so there is no outside noise for the mic to pick up?????? It used to work properly but does not anymore, did i change a setting maybe by accident????? help please!!!!!

perhaps the left speaker is damaged
what i would do is load a known mp3 too the sdcard
and play it back on your unit
if its aok level wise
then the left mic has an issue
try an external input too the left mic
if it again records bad there is an issue with the input amp and alc circuit
if it records ok chances are the left electret mic has failed and will need replaced out usually these small mics have an amp built in then this output goes at line level to the input switched between line level in mic in or internal mic in as a mix....
Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!
it might be a bad mic or it may be your mic settings its worth looking into, try connecting a audio source to it when you are configuring it and have the volume control for the microphone (on the playback section) so that you can hear it when it starts working
This camcorder will record audio from an external STEREO mic plugged into the top connector on the right side of the unit (under the plastic cover). I find it works EXTREMELY well with the various Sony microphones traditionally sold for MD recording (I use a mid-size one: model #ECMMS907). Some microphones may have too low an audio level for these camcorders. Other microphones may not have a stereo plug, but most of the ones that do (and have a high output level) should work You simply plug in the mic. No fussing with settings should be necessary. The camcorder has an onscreen audio meter that can be enabled. I leave it on all the time, so I am sure the external mic is working (mine has an on/off switch as well as an AA battery -- so I really want to make sure!).
Make sure everything is routed correctly in Windows. Double click the speaker icon on your taskbar, go into options, click preferences. You will have the option to view playback or recording settings and levels. Select recording and click OK. This will allow you to select which inputs are active for recording.
If it still doesn't work, make sure you have Acid configured to your sound card. I am not specifically familiar with Acid, but all audio programs need to be configured specifically to the system that they're running on.

It's supposed to only record on the left side. When it's in "INST/MIC" mode the left channel has your mic on it and the right channel has your instrument, so you can mix them separately. Just configure your recording software to put the left channel on one track and the right channel on another track.
