question

Could this be connected to a MacBook Pro for recording presenter audio during presentations?
Asked by: Norm
You can connect the wireless receiver to a Mac computer with an additional adapter. You will require a Rode SC4 3.5mm TRS to TRRS Adaptor, B&H # ROSC4.

question

Can you use two Transmitters for one receiver for the Audio-Technica Pro 88W or is there a handheld mic that goes into the receiver that I can use?
Asked by: Anonymous
I do not think you could use two transmitters for one receiver. You would need two complete pairs on different frequencies. I also think a handheld mike would plug into the transmitter, not the receiver.

question

I can't get the receiver and transmitter to connect... Any suggestion, as it seems impossible to mess up?
Asked by: Daniel G.
The Pro 88w wireless system transmitter and receiver unit feature an A/B frequency selector. As long as the units are set to the same they should be in communication. If you are having issues or require assistance, a Representative can be reached here at 800-606-6969 who will be happy to help.

question

I just have a question about how it links to the camera. Does it match with the video? Is there a memory card in it? Would it be compatable with my Canon 60D?
Asked by: Gresham O.
I don't know if it will be compatible with that specific camera model. I think as long as the camera has a mic in port, it should work. That's how I use it with my Panasonic camera, and I've found that it works quite well. There's no memory card and it seems to sync audio to video just fine. For the money I had to spend, and the types of shots I take - this mic does a really nice job. It's kind of surprising how far away you can be from the person talking and still have a good signal. Test first and make sure you have extra batteries on hand. Watch for some static if the speaker has the signal pack or the mic cord in an area where it gets jostled a lot (that doesn't happen too often, but if the speaker jumps off a truck or does some kind of movement where they hit the box or tug on the cord leading to the mic, it could cause noise or static in the recorded audio).
