Multicam: Audio Mixer

The Mevo Multicam app allows you to control each Mevo cameras audio source. Each camera provides its own audio source for the Multicam mix which gives you the benefit of mixing multiple audio sources together. This is great if you need to have the shots match the audio, or have one consistent audio source regardless of shot. The Multicam App can manage both!

The Audio Mixer has options to use faders, and mute/select different camera sources.

Audio Mixer

  1. You can even control each individual cameras audio settings by selecting the gear.1__Small_.jpg
  2. Internal Mic Audio Processing
    • General- This is the best option if you have a mix of both music and speech. It has minimal noise reduction and reverberation removal. 
    • Music- This is meant to capture a wide frequency range perfect for recording music. Noise reduction is off to avoid distortion.
    • Speech- If AGC is enabled when using the speech processing option the AGC will adapt more aggressively than the other processing options to ensure the speech is delivered at the highest quality.
    • Wind - This utilizes all 3 microphones to identify frequencies commonly found in wind noise allowing the Mevo to programmatically eliminate as much wind noise as possible.

  3. Auto Gain Control (AGC)
    • Music- If AGC is enabled when using the music processing option the AGC will adjust slower than the other processing options. This is done to avoid an unbalanced audio affect.
    • Speech- If AGC is enabled when using the speech processing option the AGC will adapt more aggressively than the other processing options to ensure the speech is delivered at the highest quality.
  4. Force Internal Mics - This allows users to use internal mics even when a 3.5mm is plugged in. This will not permit both to be used at the same time but simply toggle between the 3.5mm and internal microphones without physically removing the cable from the Mevo. 
  5. Monitor - You can monitor what the output by toggling the speaker icon in the top right corner. Headphones are recommended when monitoring, to avoid feedback. 
  6. Output slider - This is the slider used as a master control. It will increase and decrease the entire output without modifying the sliders of the enabled audio sources. Pressing the speaker will mute the entire output. No sound will come out for your production with this disabled.
  7. Press done to save your changes.

Audio Faders

Each fader adjusts the audio from each individual audio source. You can adjust the OUTPUT volume of each camera or tap the Speaker icon to mute.

(Notice when the channels are muted they are greyed out).

  3. You will now see all the possible audio sources you have connected. You can see the example below demonstrates (1) internal microphones, the (2) mobile devices audio, (3) a USB audio source from Mevo-23CXW's USB-C port and a (4)mobile device running the Mevo Mic App.  (5) These are the toggles to enable/disable the audio source.

  4. Once the sources are added you will notice the toggle is now blue and you can now control each source you added with their own independent sliders identifiable by unique icons and names for each source.
