Rode Videomic Pro into the Zoom H1
Hey everyone, this is my first post, not entirely sure how this all works, but it looks fairly straightforward.
Anyways I'll get right to the point: we're shooting a short film, and for audio we have the rode videomic Pro on the Rode boom Pole, with a cable plugged into the zoom H1.
Now my question is, which of these two has the better preamps? What I mean is, I can turn the input up to 100 on the zoom H1, and have the Rose videomic Pro at -10 decibels, or I could do the opposite and have the rode videomic pro at + 20, and the zoom H1 input level of about 30. I tested both setups, and I can't find any differences to my naked ear. However, I know one of them must be superior, and I cannot find that information on the internet, so I was hoping someone here would know.
