How to go line into mic on a Video Camera?
I have an older Panasonic video camera with a 3.5 mm stereo mic input. I want to go out from a mixer into the camera. How much attenuation is needed? I see products that are 50dB (Shure A15LA Line Adapter) and others that are 25dB and 35dB.
Any product recommendations from experience? I want to be able to mix the output from my audio interface with that of a microphone and keep the “audio” stereo (i.e., not mix the mic on one side and “audio” on the other at the camera).
P.S. I set the internal gain on the camera as low as it would go and brought the faders down in Sonar and it was still distorting when I went directly out from my Delta 1010 into the camera.
