cannot use both mics at the same time. Thus, your transferred audio has no sound in the right channel. If that's the case, it should be a simple matter to copy the left channel to the right channel, or to send it to both output channels in Adobe Premier.
hello, maybe someone can throw some objective light on this,
hardware: sony trv 38 handicam, with both its built in mike, and a sennheiser shotgun mike.
when I am recording with either microphone, I hear fabulous "stereo" sound in the headphones. (that is, the sound is equal in both ears, that's with either mike). same deal when I play the tape back in the camera, it also sounds fine, and balanced in headphones.
WHEN I XFER THE FOOTAGE to my PC using adobe premiere, the sound is okay with anything shot with the camera's built in mike, but the stuff shot with the shotgun mike only has audio in the left channel.
(tapes from other professionally dubbed sources also have fine stereo audio when xferred.)
the only thing I can think of is, this shotgun mike is mono, but when I'm shooting the camera is sending a "mono mix" to both ears, making me think I'm recording in stereo. is this so? or it is something more sinister?
