    Hi, I have tried that. I put AV input cable to camera to amp. I select record...but it still records from the air, from the on-board mic. It is not recording directly into the camera (like when I record a vhs tape into the camea.)

    Do I have to use audio-dubbing to record directly into the camera? Again, I do not want to record (1) video and (2) from the air.

    Thanks

    I am trying to record music from a yamaha amp to the DCC30P camera. I do not want to record from the "air," I want the music to go straight into the camera.

    How do I do this. I have the cord from the AV/In to the Amp, but the recording still is captured from the air.

    Are there special settings? Please help.

    Thanks, one more question. I see the XLR type audio adapter on the side of the camera but also see an AV/In/Out connection. Can I use that (AV/in/out) connection to attach to amp? Or do I have to use an xlr cable to the amp? I do not have a separate mic...trying to go from amp to camera.

    Thanks

  • DeniseMM Dec 06, 2007

    thanks so much, I think that is what I have to do...I will let you know how it turns out.

Hi,

Page 56 of the manual for a Panasonic DVC30 says that:
"Except when performing audio dubbing on existing recordings, audio signals cannot be recorded unless video signals are input to the S-VIDEO IN/OUT connector and/or AV IN/OUT jack."

Am not sure if this will work with your unit, but you can try to use the "Dubbing" feature as you posted but you need to fool the camera into thinking that it will dub your Yamaha audio into a pre-recorded video tape even if the tape is really empty (hopefully your version doesn't have the auto-stop feature where it senses when there are no audio/video from the tape).

From the LineOUT of your Yamaha amp, connect the audio cable to the AV IN/OUT jack of the camera;
POWER switch to VCR mode;
On the menu, select the audio recording system at the AUDIO REC item on the RECORDING SETUP screen, choose 48K;
Choose source to be recorded using the A DUB INPUT item on the AV IN/OUT SETUP screen and select A-IN;
Press PAUSE;
Press the A.DUB button on the remote control unit to establish the status ready for audio dubbing;
Press the PAUSE button on the remote control unit and start input of the sound to be dubbed;

Again, this will only work if your camera will NOT auto-stop when there is no intelligent video signal from the tape (since it is blank)/source .

This is better explained in the User's manual (pages 56, 57, 60-62, 68-71, 76 and 78).

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

The AG-DVC60 comes equipped with a built-in stereo microphone and with XLR-type audio input terminals on the rear panel. You can switch audio channels 1 and 2 separately to either line or front mic input -especially useful when recording interviews or narration. There will be a switch on the camera or in a menu somewhere to switch been the front mic or the line input. Look in the owners manual to see how to do this. This Camcorder is a professional type and is not all that hard to use, It just has a lot more features on it then a simple camcorder. Good Luck

    The owners manual should tell you if the axillary audio inputs can be switched instead of the XLR jacks. The audio switches are on the side of the camera where the audio level controls. If it is line input you need, you can get an XLR line input adapter instead of using a microphone.

    You can certainly set it up like the other tech said but then you will need a blank video or a video signal through the S-video port. The best way without the video would be to use an XLR adaptor and flip the switch on the side to transfer from the front mics, to the rear jacks..

You will have got the audio muted in your windows recording mode. If you right click on your speaker icon it will say recording devices. Click that and you will be able to see all the devices and if they are activated.

The problem of my camera is that no sound appear when i record a video..how can i solve this problem,thanks.


Hi music_divina ,


This could be due to the fact that you have a digital camera without an inbuilt microphone in it.

Usually camcorders do have in built microphone so that you can record sound as well as video simultaneously, whereas digital cameras are meant for high quality pictures , rather than videos.

So if you want to record good quality video along with audio , I would recommend you to get a camcorder.

If you have a webcam and you want to record audio along with video , then you can easily do it by using the microphone which is to be inserted in the mic slot just besides the speaker's slot with a microphone icon near it.

All you need to do is select the video recording source as your webcam and audio recording source as your microphone and there you go , you have the recording with audio.

Hope this helps ...:)

Check the microphone on the camera. There's a possibility that when it was made, the assemblers forgot to connect it inside the camera - I've seen cases like that before. Did it have audio before? If it can use an external microphone, check that.

This is a very roundabout way of recording from YouTube. There are many free utilities to capture YouTube or other website videos directly in your computer, without using a camera and getting the degradation involved. If you want the clip on your camera, you can just copy it there over the USB connection afterwards (you might need to convert the format).

The video capture software I use will automatically sense video playing in my browser and capture it. It is called Sothink Web Video Downloader, and I got it from www.download.com (free download).

Ive been able to record and now i cant record bcuz the screen says "no inputs..." but i can hear music thru the inputs and the lexicon alpha is selected as the input and output sourc. whats wrong????


It sounds like you have NOT connected via the recording software.
It is like the normal Windows software audio has hijacked the audio system even though it is external.

Go into your recording software and look for an option to select the Lexicon device. You did not tell us what recording software you are using.

This is not an uncommon problem with these external audio recording devices.
