Hello Goinaz welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

OK, you heard there was distortion and you recorded anyway and you got what you got, a mess. You are not alone. Many people have made this first-timer mistake.

So you leaned that doesn't work and you learned to pay attention to your headphones. What does work is knowing how loud you can set the inputs of your camera and/or the outputs of your receivers so you don't record at levels that are too high.

This is not rocket science, it's called gain staging. You can do this, but you have to pay attention to the details. The transmitters have sensitivity adjustments, the receivers have output adjustments, the camera has input adjustments. They all have to be adjusted correctly to get the best results.

You have one receiver feeding one channel and the second receiver feeding channel 2. That's as it should be. That way you can adjust each voice separately, as needed in postproduction.

I don't know what you mean by resetting the receivers, but you may need to adjust the entire gain stage, depending on how loud the person speaking is.

Perhaps my little book would help.
