WJJZ1069 Posted September 7, 2015 Report Share Posted September 7, 2015 Hey all, I was searching around before posting this, but I couldn't find it immediately (I hope I didn't miss a big thread on it). I notice that I'm recording audio from laptops more often than I thought I would be (all for broadcast work where a subject is sitting at a laptop listing to some random audio). The producers/camera man just ask me to lav the laptop speakers, but that creates various other problems including just bad quality. I would love to find if there's an aux > lemo5 or aux > TA-5 so I could just get direct audio out of the laptop and hook that up to a transmitter. Now, I know that would stop audio from coming out of the speakers, so I would also have to find a solution for that. I was thinking of also having this Aux out cable split so that I could hook up a small speaker and have the audio come out of that for the person at the laptop. Normally I would be fine with just securing a lav to a laptop to allow a bit of reality with shitty speakers, but I had some weird sounds because the speakers were hidden underneath the laptop on the last shoot. I just want to have a cable as an option in case that happens again. Also, what are your favorite ways of mic-ing up a computer if you want to include some of the ambient room noise?
