RodeLink with external microphone adapter

[ New ]
Hi

I try to connect a RodeLink (wireless mic) to the external mic adapter of my Hero 6. As the output of the RX device of the RodeLink is TRS i think it should work. But all settings (Std Mic, Pwrd Mic, Line In etc.) don‘t work. I also have the TRS to TRRS adapter and could verify that the RodeLink does work with my smartphone.

Do I miss a setting or somethin?

Thank you for any help on this.

Kind regards, Stefan

My RØDE VideoMicro basically worked right out of the box with the mic adaptor so it might very well be that you have a malfunctioning adaptor.

 

The mic adapter needs a TRS plug (which I guess you know).

 

I think that you need to make a warranty claim on the mic adapter at the retailer and get a new one.

Have you tried the mic adaptor with any other mic on the input?

Thank you for your reply. I tried to connect the lavelier that comes with the RodeLink which has an TRS connector. No luck. I also tried another lavelier from Rode with an TRRS link. No luck too. Maybe the adapter has a malfuntion...

Thank you for your reply. I will do so. Do you maybe remember which setting you used: Std. Mic, Std. Mic+, Pwd. Mic, Pwd. Mic+ or Line in?

 

Thank you and kind regards, Stefan

Today I set up a new Hero7 straight from the box.

 

I just plugged the audio adaptor into the Hero7 and got sound with my Røde VideoMicro.

 

The settings in the mic input selection is "STANDARD MIC".

Hi everyone and thank you for your replies. I‘m going to check with an TRRS to TRS adapter to be fully sure and if it‘s not working I will claim the warranty. I will write Back if something special will be discovered that could be of interest for the community.

Kind regards, Stefan
