    hey guys so so far I've only found that yes you can record audio into the red one mx. my question is about exactly how to record and how to use headphones to hear it live if that is possible. I know, trust me i know that it does not produce the best sound but i am in a pinch and lost my sound guy for this weekends interviews.

    I have a rode ntg3 that i am going to directly feed into the red one MX. should this go in line 1, 2, 3, 4? do i need to be in a specific setting to record audio + video at the same time? i plugged my headphones in and can't hear anything. when plugged into line #1 i don't get the meters moving at all but when i plug into line #2 they seem to be working but i can't hear it on my headphones. is that normal?

    the settings are limited but what are the best to set it to?


    thank you guys for helping in this pinch.

    You'll still need a preamp of some kind.

    For best quality you want to go with dual system, and use time code to quickly sync it up later on in post.
