Hi all, I am a videographer and I have been recording audio using the on-camera mic for quite some time now. But now I am thinking of recording everything from the DJ’s mixer to my MacBook Pro and then using the audio file to replace the on-camera audio…
I have not yet bought but will get the “Behringer UCA202” very soon. However, as I am quite new here, I don’t exactly understand how to go on to record something. Following are the steps I think are required:
1). Connect the Behringer UCA202 to MacBook Pro and the DJ will connect his own RCA out from mixer (2 cables, 1 for left and 1 for right) to the USB interface.
2).Then I shall connect my headphones to the headphone out on the card and it should be playing back whatever is coming in from the RCA cables. - Any software changes to Audacity (1.3.9 -Unicode) needed to activate live monitoring through headphones?
3). Then I should boot up Audacity and go to PREFERENCES---->DEVICES and then select the Behringer wherever I see it (Host, Playback, Device), and select 2 channels (stereo signal).
4). Then probably I should hit record, monitor the input for some time and make sure that there is no clipping in the audio signal (probably set the levels at this time) and then leave the setup like that for the rest of the time.
It is going to be a 4-5 hour event.
Am I covering all the steps needed to record audio from the mixer?
I would appreciate some guidance on this.
