Input audio to PV-GS250 from an external mixer

I'm trying to record the audio with a small external mixer. Plugged into the mixer is a guitar and a microphone. When I plug the output of the mixer into the mic input of the camera, I just get static and noise. However, if I just plug in the mic that came with the camera, everything is fine. both plugs look exactly the same. Any suggestions?

Problem check list:

- Try another cable in the connection to rule out the cable
- Make sure the 1/8 plug goes in all the way
- Make sure you have it connected to proper outputs on the mixer (and that it's not a powered mixer!)
- Make sure you don't have the output volume up too loud on the mixer

How to record Guitar sound on a computer


<p>Line-in <br /> <p>1. Buy a software package for recording music, if your budget allows. Recording music software is specifically designed for recording musical instruments formed. He cannot offer features found in common software audio. Alternatively, an audio recording program for free to get the music recording software than your needs and budget. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Buying a guitar cable to your computer if you use an electric guitar. Connect the larger end of your guitar amplifier and the small end into the computer microphone / line-in. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. For an external microphone when a traditional guitar. Plug the microphone into the computer microphone / line-in. A stereo microphone is a natural sounding audio file, due to the dual microphones. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Open your audio recording program, which recognizes the device connected to ensure the microphone / line-in. Pull the cord, again if it does not recognize the device. Change the settings for the recording program to your needs to adapt, you can file type for quality change, and the recording is mono or stereo and audio level. Press the Record button, then started playing guitar. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Press the "Stop" button when you finish the game. Some programs can automatically be prompted to save the file; others may be the audio file first. Press "control" and saving "S", if not prompted. <br /> <p><br /> <p>Digital recorder <br /> <p>1. Buy a stand-alone digital recorder, if you do not want a guitar cable or an external microphone. A stand-alone digital recorder is small enough to fit in your pocket and can be placed anywhere without the need hampered by a cable. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Set the digital recorder on a flat surface. Press the record button. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press the digital recorder, "Stop" when finished. Connect the recorder to the computer with data cable. Open the device by clicking on "Start" then "Computer" and double click on the recorder in the "Removable Devices". Copy the file from the recorder to your computer. Turn off the burner when you are ready to save battery power.<br />

I just bought an audio technica at2020 cardioid condenser mic its the 20 series and i cant figure out how to get it to work on my toshiba laptop


Unlike 'Dynamic' microphones all condenser microphones require some sort of power supply to make them work. Sometimes this can be by way of an internal battery but many of them work on an external 'phantom' power supply.
I am not familiar with the exact model number you quote but AT make 2 types of AT2020 condenser microphone.
1) If your AT microphone is fitted with a USB plug then you can connect it directly to the USB socket on your computer, which will provide it with the power that it needs to make it work. The USB bus should automatically recognise the microphone and allocate an audio channel to it but you may still have to select this device as your input source in your recording program. How you do this will differ from one program to another.

2) However if the microphone is fitted with a standard jack-plug then it will not work by you just plugging it into your computer microphone input socket as this is not powered. You will need a separate 48volt DC power supply to power the microphone.
You will almost certainly also need some sort of microphone pre-amplifier to match the output voltage and impedance (electrical resistance) of the microphone to the levels required by your audio input socket on your computer.
Probably the best way to achieve both of these requirements at lowest cost would be to purchase a small audio mixer with a phantom power option such as the Phonic AM220 http://cpc.farnell.com/phonic/am220/mixing-console-am220/dp/DP29303

WARNING - most audio mixers only have one on/off switch for phantom, power - thus the power is either on or off for ALL channels. Some other devices - like radio microphones, keyboards and electric guitars may be damaged by having 48v dc current supplied to them

Here is a link to the technical specs sheet for the AT2020 http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/resource_library/literature/49f63e6efc082082/at2020_english.pdf

1) how to make my amp record....because its not working when i try... 2) do i have to a cord in line 1 and 2??? 3) do i have to plug in the cord in :.....line in or line out??????


You will use microphone with balanced XLR connector into the XLR mic input. Note, the ALpha does NOT have phantom power so you cannot use condenser mics.

A guitar can be plugged into the hi-z instrument 1/4 inch jack on the left front of the unit.

To use the line 1/4 inch inputs you will use BALANCED TRS 1/4 inch cables from your source.for these channels. The level on these needs to be line level.

The line outs are for sending audio out to an amp. There appears to be RCA outputs you can use as well.

I am not sure what you mean by making your "amp record"... An amp PLAYS the audio, usually into a speaker.

If you are trying to play a guitar through your amp AND record, then you will connect your guitar to the Alpha, the amp input will have a cable from say Line 1 OUTPUT and when recording wou will have the echo feature on so your guitar is passed through to the amp.

How do I turn the audio record level off so that I can record an image without sound?


If you don't want sound and have a mini jack cable, you might be able to plug into the mike jack on the side of the camera.
I have an external 2 input audio mixer on my camera. It connects through that input. If I do not have a mike plugged into my mixer and the mixer is plugged in, I will not get audio. You could also maybe try turning your audio levels all the way down.

Can't get the external wireless mic to record...


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!).

RECORDING GUITAR USING AUDIOPHILE FIREWIRE AND GUITAR RIG 3


I've ran the audio in on my sound card to my mixer and had the guitar on the mic in.  I've also ran the line in to a small cracker amp.  Keep it turned down. If I would directly connect it use an adaptor.  I haven't tried using a 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and directly connected to it as I wanted to control the tone. I don't see why it wouldn't work.  Keep everything muted and turned all the way down when you first connect it.  Then start raising volumes slowly  I will try and report back As far as spdif you're just recording analog to digital conversion.  I get more realisitc sound just keeping it analog til it hits my line in.  Have a quality sound card.  Not some walmart special.  I use Adobe Audition 1.5 to multichannel record.

Lot of possibilities.

The DP-01 is like a mixer with built-in recording capabilies. You could plug your tunrntables into your DP-01 inputs, assign the inputs to tracks(channels) on the DP-01, and then output those tracks to two channels on your mixer (which would be connected to your PA.

Alternatively, you could plug the outs from your mixer into the DP-01 either by routing individual channels from the mixer into the DP-01 inputs, or outputting the mix into a single track (or into two tracks in stereo on your DP-01). Just assign the DP-01 inputs as usual to the tracks you want to record onto.

Those are just a couple of basic ideas. You could also route a DP-01 track (or the whole mix) back out the DP-01 send loop and through some external processors and then back to tracks on your DP-01, or you could do this through the mixer and then record the final result on the DP-01.
