Hi out there...I have a Canon Rebel & a H4n. What is the best way to to get the sound from the H4n to the DSLR & have it sound good in the cameras memory card without 'noise' so that I don't have to sync the video & sound in post edit.

I can recommend a great video to get you started here:



I actually follow Ray Ortega on YouTube and listen to his podcast.
If you go to his YouTube channel, you will also find more tutorials related to Video and Audio Production.
Ray is a great fellow and easy to talk to.

Derek.

Hi Derek - I'm having a problem connecting my Rode NTG 1 xlr mic. to my pc using an Icicle converter. My pc is not recognising the usb connection. Everything worked fine initially but now it doesn't! I've followed the internet advice on this (Windows code 10) and uninstalled the 'USB Multi-Channel Audio Device' from the Device Mgr in the control panel and then plugged in the usb lead, which is supposed to install the correct driver. But it's not working - I've also noticed that the 'arm for record' button is greyed out in Vegas Pro 13. Pressing 'record' results in ..... nothing! I'm using Windows 7 pro on my desktop.
Strangely, I've been able to sort the problem on my laptop which has Windows 10 loaded.
Any ideas, please?

Hi Alan

Have you tried using a different USB Port ?
If it is a Desktop computer you are using and was bought in the last couple of years, it should have USB ports on the Front and Back.
The Front and Back USB Ports may also be a mixture of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0
USB 3.0 is blue coloured inside.

On my mother's computer the other day, she could not get a new USB drive to recognize on the Front Ports, but it worked on the Back Ports.
Try this first first.

I also found an article which may help you. It explains how to remove corrupted Drivers from Device Manager.
I have a feeling this may be your solution.
www.faqforge.com/windows/uninstall-usb-drivers-on-windows-7/

If none of the above helps, you need to post a message on one of the official Windows 7 Forums and ask a super-geek.

Regards
Derek

Hi Derek,
I've tried using different USB ports but still no luck. I think I'll contact Blue Icicle before the Windows team and check out their response. This is once again a bit strange, in that the Rode mic. in question worked for some months when initially connected to my desktop - now the pc is not recognising it. My other Creative headset mic. which is also USB works ok - very strange.
Maybe this is a Windows 7 problem because I managed to get it working with the laptop using Windows 10.
Thanks for your prompt response, as always.
Alan

Success! I tried the following sequence and it worked. Remove microphone USB connection from computer - Device Mgr - uninstall & delete usb multi channel device icon - restart computer - plug in microphone USB connection - bingo!
The only difference from what I did before was re-starting the pc.

Excellent news !

I am a huge fan of re-booting the computer for just about any occasion.
If you ever have a problem again, try threatening your computer to take it for sky diving lessons.
