Ordered a tascam dr-60d as well yesterday! can't wait for it to come in.

Hi Five !!!
On a side note, I have never had a dedicated audio recorder or a microphone and know nothing about audio recording, I bet I will be pretty confused at first.:lol:
Oh well, now I have something to learn for the next month.:)

If you're making a lot of money, go for the Zoom.

But if not, I use the Rode VideoMic Pro for everything and it works great. Never had a problem with audio after I bought it.

But if you're doing more commentary or follow shots where you need to only hear one person, go for the wireless ones.

It was an option at 1st but I decided to future-proof myself.
I might end up getting into the audio side of things pretty seriously !!!

Zoom H1 is the best bang for the buck. Slick and small. Give all that bigger brothers provid you at small format.

Very odd. I thought if you buy it from B&H Photo, it makes no difference regardless of where you're purchasing it from. In any case, that's too bad...

Well I am not even sure if I need it.
I will be able to sync in Premiere Pro CC without much problems I believe.

Have been playing with my DR-60D recorder and NTG-2 mic and have a question.
Even if the microphone is 50-100cm away from my mouth and above my head, I have to set the gain control to high and input level almost to maximum as well to get the -12 DB sound.

Is this normal? I though a low-mid gain would have been enough, but I am forced to use high gain every time ...
What gain level do you guys set to get decent sound?

Are you using a poor battery in the NTG2 or are you using phantom power and is the phantom power on 48v?

No, a normal rechargeable AA battery, I don't think its poor.

Get an XLR to XLR cable and use the 48v phantom power from the recorder (I think you have to remove the battery from the mic). See if that is any better. I tend not to use rechargables on my NTG2.

Sure I can try the phantom power.
Will let you know of the results if its better.
Another think when recording I am powering my Tascam 60D recorder with USB power (its connected to computer and powered by USB power). I wonder If it has something to do with low recording voice? Mabye I should use the AA batteries for the recorder instead?

Its not normal though is it to be able to record 12db voice at a reasonable distance only at high gain is it ?
What do you mean by XLR to XLR cable?
I Just use 1 XLR cable, connecting my recorder to the mic.

A cable with an XLR plug at one end and a socket at the other (a conventional mic cable) compared to one with and XLR and mini jack.

Also does the recorder have mic level and record level settings?

Tried with a regular non-rechargeable battery in the Mic as well as put batteries in the recorder instead of USB power and it seemed to work better.
Could record 12db talking at medium gain and about 80% of mic input level.
Does this seem ok ???

Anything made by Sound Devices is worth the money. I suggest getting as many XLR inputs as you can 1 or two is good for now, but in the future if you want to add many lav mics it will come in handy/
