I wonder if a pair of mics, versus a single mic, adds a lot complication for minimal return when recording a solo guitar.
Something like a "Baby Bottle" mic is useful in a variety of situations and captures good audio with little hassle.
That setup sounded really good, John! you recorded the sound separately and merged with the video post-production, or the Baby Bottle was directly fed into the ext-mic of the camcorder? I have the Baby-Blue mic that I played with several times, but the results were not so good. I wonder if the Baby Blue is tuned for vocal and podcast setup, and not for instrumental recording.
Yeah, I have absolutely no concept as to how the audio is mixed with 3
Each camera has its own audio track, so you use those to sync all three camera video streams together. The video-editing software takes care of that easily. (I use Premiere Pro.)
Once all three video streams are synced, you remove all but one of the audio tracks. So now you have three video tracks and one audio track. Now you import the audio from your Baby Bottle or whatever external mic(s) you used, and you sync that external audio track to the remaining audio track from the three cameras. Again, the video-editing software takes care of this easily.
Then you remove the camera audio track and all you have left is the external audio that is now synced to the three video tracks.
Kind of a long-winded explanation, and there's probably an easier way, but that's how I do it.
