Plug it into Audio 1 ports, switch to audio, not mic on the physical camera, then check that you have selected stereo 12 bit, 1,2 from the record audio menu.
Also note you have to push the button next to the audio meter to monitor different sources.

MY VIDOE CAMCORDER WILL NOT RECORD SOUND WHEN I ATTACH A MIC


You need to connect your mic to an amplifier first and then to camera. Orherwise mic has not enouth power output. Zoom h4n might work but its expansive. Or u can buy wm-v1, wireless mic, it'll work just fine. Or buy mic with power already built in, like Rode VideoMic.

I have Canon XL2. It suddenly stopped recording sound. I replaced front mic, tried different mics from the rear connections - neither case, i can not get it record a sound. Video is fine. Any help would...


This could be a fault in the audio processor board or possibly a defective audio head. Either of these can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My pc doesn't reckognize the canon xl2 when connected by firewire


Well, I hate that when it happens so we changed test-bed computer to Mac. The software runs as soon as two hardware, pc and XL2 is connected physically. I do not have knowledge on prem pro 1.5. but from technician's point of view, if both machines I/O hardwares are ok rest of the reponsibility depending on the program. This is how I would do it. 1. Restart the computer 2. open only the related program and have it ready for connect. 3. turn on XL2 on VCR mode, test make sure it plays few second. 4. connect the firewire. Hope this works otherwise, I will re-install the program and try. Beyond that point, it's good to consult with a local technician for diagnostic of your XL2 first. -James

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

XL1s and 4 channel audio


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!

My audio from the mic is cutting in and out when i play tape back


There could be a short in the mic wire. Does that camera have wind block settings for the mic? If so either turn them on or turn them off. See if that works.

XL2s are notorious for issues in interacting with final cut.
Simply put, sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. But - there's a way around it.
Change the capture settings preset to 'non-controllable device'. Use the shuttle controls on top the handle of the XL2 to play back the footage as you wish. when you want to capture, click 'Capture Now' - It should do the trick.
