OK... I have Sennheiser wireless transmitters and receivers (500 series). The transmitter says that it can take a mic or line input. When I connect an xlr to 1/8" cable that I normally use to connect a mic to the transmitter... it is way over modulated. Is there a different wiring scheme for an xlr/line in cable? Or... just what IS the deal? Do I need to turn the sensitivity way down instead, or what?
I very rarely need to take a feed from an event audio board... and when I do, I can usually get a mic level out. In rare circumstances I have to use a line level out... and then I usually just use a cable, but sometimes I need the camera to be more mobile, so I need to understand what I need to do differently to make my wireless system perform properly with a line level input.
Thanks in advance.
