line-to-mic cable
on Oct 1, 2014 at 5:12:20 pm

I want to connect mic output of a mixer to the mic input of the camcorder to record the speech. Can I do it with a connecting cable. If so which cable can I use.
The camcorder I have is Panasonic HC-V750.

The mixer I have is Behringer Xenyx X1832USB.

Your advice would be helpful.

Is this mixer dedicated to handling audio for your camcorder? Or is this mixer providing (for example) venue sound reinforcement, and you are taping into it for recording purposes?

You generally need to get from one of the line-level outputs from the mixer (XLR or TRS or RCA) and knock the audio level down to mic-level, and adapt it to the 3.5mm stereo mini-phone jack that goes into your camcorder.

The most straightforward way of doing this is to use an adapter box made for the specific purpose such as a BeachTek DXA-2 The current version is the DXA-2T (T for "tough", they provide a rubber cover for the box to improve its ability to handle trauma in the field.)

Then you would use an cable appropriate for whichever output you are using from the mixer.
