2 lav's, transmitters and 1 receiver.
on May 31, 2007 at 12:07:58 am

I'm researching wireless lav mic's for use on my Canon GL2 and I have this question.

On location, I want to be able to have two people mic'd so that as one is talking, if the other coughs, the cough doesn't mess up the audio of the first person. I realize 2 mic's and 2 transmitters are required, but is one reciever able to take audio from both mic's and via an MA300, provide two audio tracks or are 2 receivers required?

I've read that a wired mic would be more reliable, but where I'm going to be, that is not an option.

Thanks in advance for clarification and direction. Pattie

You need two complete systems, 2 transmitters and 2 receivers.

If that receiver is an Audio Technica 1800, yes.
It's actually two receivers in one case.

[Patson] "On location, I want to be able to have two people mic'd so that as one is talking, if the other coughs, the cough doesn't mess up the audio of the first person. "

One often mis-understood concept of discrete channel audio recording is that you get totally clean audio on each channel.
Even with 2 seperate systems recording to 2 discrete channels you will still hear the cough from the other person on the speakers channel, if they are standing next to each other, just as you would hear the cameraman cough or a car going by or whatever other ambient sound is in the vicinity of the microphone. It will be "off mic" but you will still hear it nonetheless.

Thanks for your response Frank,

I assumed that a "cough" would still be picked up on the second mic. I just am hoping that like you stated, depending on how close the second person is, it won't be as loud. I'm looking forward to using some new equipment that I feel will offer me more options and improve my knowledge.

Thanks again, I appreciate your input! Pattie
