I’m trying to capture from a microphone into a Decklink4kExtreme. Little trickier than I expected. Hopefully someone here can sort this out.
Mic is a Shure SM7B going into a Cloudlifter pre-amp. If we plug this into a zoom recorder it sounds fantastic.
Trying to plug it into the Decklink audio input set to Analog gave us nothing. We plugged in a BM Pocket Camera via HDMI and the audio came through. Is it possible to capture audio without a video input? If not, will the Mini Converter Sync Generator give us what we need to remove the BM camera from the mix?
I could not get a signal with the mic to going straight into the decklink and had to patch it through a mixer. Unfortunately we’re getting reverb going this route… I’m sure I can sort this out with a little time, but the Cloudlifter does such a clean gain going into the Zoom recorder that I’d prefer not going through the mixer. I assume this is an impedance matching issue? I used to have a Matchbox on my flame to deal with this… https://www.henryeng.com/matchbox.html. Would this help with Decklink?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
And if Grant/Matt are still monitoring this board, it’s been way too long. Miss you guys =).
