Audio level discrepancy between hardwired and wireless lav
on Nov 28, 2011 at 11:44:53 pm

I generally use an audio-technica u100 wireless lav mic with my EX3 and the audio meter
level reading is between -10 and -20 with the external dial set to 5 and the internal trim set to -41dBu, which is fine. My question is when I use my hardwired Sony ECM-44B lav mic instead, I can't get anywhere near -10 to -20 on my levels meter unless I crank the external dial all the way up to the max (10) and set the internal trim to -59dBu. Can anyone tell me if this is the only way to get decent levels with the Sony mic? There are certain situations when I'd prefer to use the hardwired mic so I hope someone can help me out.

Thanks

You should try to boost the signal from yor wireless to -59 which is the norm for pro gear.
