Rode Wireless Go 2 and BMPCC 6k pro

PostWed Apr 21, 2021 1:18 pm

Good afternoon

Just looking into the above for Audio options.

Does anyone know, if I Plug the receiver into the camera to record the feed from the 2 transmitters if I can still have an option to also record ambient noise from the cameras own mics at the same time? and if this is possible how do I go about it?

Thanks
Lee

I’m speaking from the Rose Wireless Go experience on my UMPG2, but yes. You can have XLR 1 for one audio channel and the camera mic on two. I think it’s the same for the Pocket 6K and especially the Pocket 6K Pro with its two mini XLR inputs.

I honestly have been having issues with the Rode Wireless Go. It cuts out too frequently for my liking. So I rely more on a Sennheiser Shotgun on a boom and am looking at getting a Seinnheiser wireless lav system to replace the Wireless Go.

Tim, I think Lee meant to record 2 channels from the Wireless Go 2 plus the 2 channels from the camera internal mics - resulting in 4 channel recordings.
That is - unfortunately not possible. You can only record 2 channels. You can set the Wireless Go 2 to mix the channels together to mono and set this in the camera to the left and one internal mic to the right - or vice versa.
Saying "Thx for help!" is not a crime.
