Okay, thanks for your help!
Ah, okay. I was doing some more research, and that's what I found too. That leaves one last question, how do you know the video micro (again, not the videomic or mic-pro) sends an unbalanced signal? I've tried to figure it out myself, but research has lead to nothing.
Right, and that may be what I end up doing. I actually have a tascam dr60d, so I'm good on that front. :D Thanks!
Right, but most auxiliary cables out there have TRS connectors. For instance, the one linked below.
So, are you safe if you use a TRS cable? Does the cable flip the signal polarity, or do you need your device (microphone) to be able to flip it before sending it down the cable? I don't really need to know this for my original question, I'm just more curious than anything.
Thanks for the help. Just a quick question, how do you know the video-micro is unbalanced? I couldn't find anything indicating that in the specs. Are shotgun mics with 3.5mm jacks just unbalanced as a rule? I figured it wouldn't have that problem because TRS cables are supposedly balanced.
Well now I'm confused XD. I will say that I recognize that XLR is better, and I would use it except that the video-micro needs plug in power, and a phantom power to plugin power converter is out of my price range. It's out of my price range because I'd be recording this video for free, and I wasn't otherwise going to buy a XLR mic, cable, or plugin converter at this time.
I might be able to borrow an XLR mic/cable, in which case that's what I'll plan on using.
