The Wireless GO II kit offers an excellent solution for capturing audio from 1-2 individuals using a single recording device, such as a camera or audio capture device. However, in scenarios like podcast recording, you might require audio input from 3-4 people. Achieving this setup is possible by adding extra Wireless GO II or Wireless ME kits, along with supplementary cables.
In this guide, we'll demonstrate how to use 2x Wireless GO II kits along with an SC11 splitter cable to record audio from four transmitters (TX)
- Obtain a SC11 TRS splitter cable or a similar cable that can convert two mono outputs into a single stereo input.
- Configure each Wireless GO II RX unit to 'Merge Mode'.
For more information about Merge and Split mode, please see our article here.
- Ensure uniform gain settings on each RX unit to maintain consistent audio levels sent to the camera or audio capture device.
- Connect the shorter red and black cable ends of the SC11 splitter cable to the respective Wireless GO II receiver.
- Next, attach the longer black cable side of the SC11 to your camera or audio capture device 3.5mm input.
If connecting to an XLR input, consider using a VXLR Pro adapter for optimal compatibility.
Your setup is now ready to record audio from multiple Wireless GO II kits into your camera or audio capture device. The left and right audio channels will be divided between the Wireless GO II kits. For instance, two transmitters will be designated as left channels, while the other two will be assigned to the right channels on your camera or audio capture device.
Important Note: If you require separate audio tracks for each transmitter, ensure the transmitter's on-board recording is set to "Always" or "Backup" Record mode. Export individual recordings from RØDE Central to maintain distinct audio tracks (Wireless GO II only).
