How to use 2 mics while recording video?

3 months 4 weeks ago #691753 by David Dettman
Good morning.  Is there a way to use 2 mics with a Sony a7R iii?   I bought the Rode Go Wireless and was planning on using that and my shotgun mic to record a wedding.  But so far I can only see that I can connect one or the other.  

How can I make this work?  Thank you for the help.

2 mics?

I am not a videographer but a musician and that implies
the use of an external sound recorder… multitrack that is.

In post, the sound tracks will have all the editing available
at hand: syncing, mixing, EQ, etc.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Some months ago, I got me this:  Digital 4 tracks

Simple answer: no. Not without additional equipment.

You might be able to find a splitter to put one mic on the left channel, and another on the right. But the easiest thing to do would be to rent a field recorder for the Rode receiver and have done with it.

There are 2 channel battery powered mixers available.
The one in this link is one of them.

I have no idea how well they work. I never used one, but you might consider renting one to see if it is right for you. A photo equipment store near you might be able to help with the rental. It isn't all that expensive, so gambling on it might be worth it. Buy from Amazon or some other easily returnable source so you can return it if it doesn't do what you want.

If I combine them as a 'Multi Clip' in FCPX would that take the sound from each and combine?
