  7. Secure the microphone to your subject.
    Label placement
    (Good practice for lavalier placement is somewhere on the chest that hides the microphone, around 6 inches below the mouth if possible, and somewhere with minimal rubbing with skin or fabric. If needed, you can use supplies from the Lavalier Accessories Kit to aid this process. The kit has tape to help secure a mic and reduce rubbing interference). To reduce interference from the microphone wire bouncing around, you can create a loop in the wire, and tape the wire together at the intersection.
    Taping to chest
    The transmitter should then be secured to the subject's belt or put in their pocket. The lavalier accessory kit has a band to use as well.
  8. Make sure your camera or sound recorder is set to Line level for the lavalier mic. If this isn't set correctly, you won't be able to pick up your audio correctly.
    SettoLine
  9. Double check that both the Transmitter and Receiver are set to the standard settings of 0 dB Sensitivity on the Transmitter and -12 dB AF Out on the Receiver.
  10. If everything has been set properly, you should be able to see input on the channel that your lavalier is plugged into.
    Levels
  11. If you are unable to see proper input in the specified channel, repeat these steps and make sure everything is plugged in correctly and you have the right settings for each device.

Troubleshooting

Resetting the Sensitivity and AF Out

  • The wireless transmitter's "sensitivity" should be set to -12dB.

Setting the 633 Sound Devices to LINE

  • When using the wireless lav with the 633 Sound Devices audio recorder, the input should be set to "line" power. To do so, move the switch to the side of your desired input. In this case, we're using input one, so the switch is pushed to the left:
