May I know the brand and model of the mic? @parthb7828

Please check this thread: https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/Hero-5-Mic-Adapter-Not-Working/td-p/225462

 

Also how do you set up your mic and how do you start recording?

Hey, yeah the brand is purple panda and it's a mono mic. I have it set up through the gopro adapter along with their own AUX adapter. I got sound to come but there is some static in the background now that I'm wondering about. Thanks. I start recording with the one click record button on top. It has audio input set to microphone too.

Got it @parthb7828,

 

Can you try to turn on your camera first using the mode button before you start recording. 

Let us know if that will make any difference.

 

 

Thanks!
