  • Using Tascam 424mkIII as a mixer

    I own a Tascam 424mkIII 4 track recorder. It doesn't get a whole lot of use - however, I'm currently working on pre-production for making a short film. I wanted to try and use the 424 as a field mixer for a boom mic and run it to my camera (a Canon XL-1)... problem I've found is the sound going to the camera is a bit robotic and has a lot of hum. The phone monitoring at the recorder sounds great... something's lost on the way to the camera. If I wanted to use it as a mixer would I get better results running the "out" from Tape out or Monitor... or somewhere else?
    Anyway to get rid of that hum?
    Thanks for the help if anybody's got an idea...

          What sort of input on the video gear? Might be expecting a mic signal when you're sending line.

          Might also be a ground loop, in which case one of those line-level ground isolator boxes could help.

            RCA input for left and right audio chanels.
            The Tascam has XLR inputs.
