5-5-2 Manually Adjusting the Audio
Level of the Front Microphone
You can adjust the audio level input from the front
microphone connected to the MIC IN connector, which is
to be recorded on audio channels 1 and 2.
Note
If the XLR connection automatic detection mode is on,
when the cables are connected to the AUDIO IN CH1/CH2
connectors, the camcorder detects the connection to the
AUDIO IN CH1/CH2 connectors. Thus, the AUDIO IN
switches are internally reset to REAR and the audio signals
input to the AUDIO IN CH1/CH2 connectors are
automatically selected.
Before adjusting the audio level of the front microphone,
confirm that no cables are connected to the AUDIO IN
CH1/CH2 connectors. Alternatively, set the REAR XLR
AUTO item to "OFF" on the AUDIO-1 page of the
MAINTENANCE menu.
