Azden SGM 1x - No Getting Sound
on Jun 29, 2009 at 6:42:53 pm

I have a problem with a new just bought Azden SGM 1x.

I am not getting audio. I am conecting it to my HV30 with a Hosa Technology MIT-156 XLR Female to Stereo 1/8" Miniplug Male Connector.

I have test many batteries, and nothing. The battery look to be well placed.

Any tips?

Engel

Have you adjusted the audio level up in the camera menus? If not, try that. Also, there might be a switch to go between the built-in and external mic, although, it's probably a mechanical switch in the mic-in connector. Here's a link to the page with the camera instruction manual. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=1...

Hi Engel,

I know this is very basic, however Be sure you have new batteries and the mic is turned on.

Hello Engel and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum.

As you have discovered, most people are disappointed when they they to plug a MONO mic into a STEREO input. In order to achieve success, you need either a cable that will put the mic on one of two channels or on both of them.

Which do you prefer?

I bought the azden sgm 1x for my canon 7d. It plugs in fine but I can barely hear anything from it and it's very scratchy. I figured well it might me the mic so I plug it in my computer and it works fine. So I think oh crap my camera is broke. So I plug a different mic in my camera and it works fine. They both work fine until you marry them up. Anyone have any ideas?

It's a TRS, no question about it.
