That is an excellent point, Fernando. Thanks. I think that is the way to go, use input 2 and record with 2 channels. Just a question, when I only record one channel, then throw it into FCP, I notice I get 2 audio channels, both L and R. Is the sound quality any better if you record with 2 channels as opposed to just one? if they both give you a L and R in FCP, what is the difference?

One issue I have is I recently had to record interviews for a news situation where we were doing a lot of stuff on the fly (did you see the Castaway story on CNN about the Marshall Islands? We shot all that initial footage. If you saw the Castaway on film walking around with hair and beard, that was us). When I had 2 channels to balance it was a real hassle, it would have been much easier just balancing one channel.
