Is it possible to do narration with two headsets at the same time? I would prefer to have separate naration tracks, but would settle for just one.
If you're recording directly into the program using the Narration tool, you can only have one audio input at a time.
If you record each audio track individually outside the program, however, you can add they WAV files to the timeline and mix them any way you'd like.
Thank you Steve. This will likely be a solution for some situations.
You caught me on a day that I'm researching how to feed two mics into an Zoom H1n external audio recorder that has only one input. It appears that something like this Y-cable/splitter might work for you. The assumption is that your headsets use the four contacts on a TTRS plug. Other adapters I found are TRS (three contacts) to TTRS.
Bill, given the response from Steve Grisetti, indicating only one input at a time is possible with narration, your suggestion sounds like the best solution for the majority of my projects. I have yet to purchase headsets, so I will be sure to look for headsets and a splitter that are compatible. Thank you very much for your suggestion.
FYI, I will primarily use this for my wife and I to narrate old Super 8 silent videos that have been converted to digital.
Considering that you don't have to perfectly syncronize the new audio to the old video, you might consider trying an external audio recorder. It may be much easier, with potentially better results. I like the Zoom H1n recorder. Even a simple mic plugged into your phone could work. Watch a couple YouTubes on the H1n and see what you think. Adding an audio track is easy to do.
Bill, The H1n looks like a very interesting option. I looked at some of the YouTube videos. Very impressive. Thank you for the additional option. This is an excellent option to go along with the response from Steve Grisetti. You and Steve make a good team.
