My audio set-up (audio mixer in my Casablanca lab)
There was a question on the Casablanca Forum asking about what audio great would be good for a set-up with your Casablanca editor. I take this opportunity to amplify the brief response I provided on the Forum.
my edit suite/office, what I call the 'Casablanca Lab', I have my
Casablanca Renommee Plus and my Casablanca S4000 PRO stacked to my
left, feeding into a 27" LCD monitor.
Depending on the tutorial or web lesson I am producing I use one of these editors as the source and one as the recorder. Then I have my Windows tablet PC and my Mac mini (Apple PC) running directly in front of me on my desk.
Now for the question at hand, for my audio I use a Behringer 802 audio mixer.
There is a smaller model (the 502) that is more affordable but I like the fact that for $10 or $20 more, I get 1 more XLR microphone input that may come in handy if I want to use this for a location mix.
How my mixer is set-up:
have my Voice Technologies VT500 (wired lavalier) connected to Channel
1 via XLR cable. I then feed whichever Casablanca editor is the source
(playback) from it's audio out (RCA/Phono) into the 'CD/Tape' inputs on
the mixer. Then I take the 'CD/Tape' Output and feed that pair
(RCA/Phono) into the Casablanca audio in which serves as the Record or
destination editor. I will connect a pair of headphones or the speaker
for my 27" LCD monitor to the head-phone output on the Behringer which
has it's own volume control.
