Thread: lavalier levels

  1. #1

    Default lavalier levels

    This has to be a common situation.

    Have on screen talent talking to the camera. They are wearing a lavalier. Often he/she refers to the product in their hands. When they do this, talking directly into the mic, the audio level hops noticeably. How do you mitigate this? After the fact, in final cut? Or with a compressor beforehand? Another technique that mitigates?

    If you are getting a distorted recording you should adjust the input levels and/or apply a limiter to the signal. DO NOT COMPRESS! Otherwise you should adjust the levels in audio post, preferably manually, but, if you are in a hurry, you can use a limiter.
