What make and model mike? It sounds like your mike isn't putting out anywhere near enough signal.
I'm recording sound for film on minidv and i'm getting alot of hisssing b/c i basically have to turn the gain up on the master sound track in final cut to hear the sound very well. This is really a dumb question b/c i think i know the answer. I'm recording with a microphone that is not a condensor mic, so no phantom power or anything. Is this my main problem? would getting a condensor mic increase my levels so i don't have to crank up the gain?

By the way its nice to see another oklahoman here, i'm just 50 min north of you in stillwater. If you ever have a shoot and wouldn't mind me tagging along on the set, i'd like to come by sometime. I like to see how other people run things. What kind of stuff do you usually shoot?
