Recording Audio With External Mic On Samsung Galaxy Note 2




What do you think about this video?

n8lay: red = right, white = left, yellow = composite video

Shawn Bartley: Thanks. You are awesome!! Thanks so much!

STEEL RECORDZ: Lol yellow for audio..dough! Good vido tho

Philippe Heritier: Hi thanks for the tip. I try with the same video cable, but when i plug it, it doesn't switch off the internal mic and can't record with my external mic !? You know how to switch those mics ? Thx

Jedarius48: This is an excelent solution! I used it as part of setting up my Galaxy Note II on a tripod. I used an inexpensive wireless mic and its small amp powered by a separate 12 Vdc battery, using an existing audio cable (w/o a need for adapters) that I use with my Nikon D5100 setup for the same purpose. The small amp gives me volume and squelch control which were barely needed (and an output to a larger "house" amp) and provide great quality audio with my video. You video description is excellent. Thank you. ~Jedarius48

mattsmovies100: So why did you ask??? Haha so since you know it all can I use a note 3 as a mass storage device to record external audio?? 

Mohd Azylee: Lol.

mattsmovies100: Yellow is picture dude red and white left and right stereo.. If its just going out of red its either faulty lead or mono... You don't need yellow for audio

sjs: Great video; Thanks.

Kevin Alexander: In a standard A/V cable, Yellow is Video. Red and White are the 2 channels of Audio.

Valueless Dollar: Yellow = Video Red = Right Audio White = Left Audio

punchfacejay: Typically yellow is video. Great videos by the way! Very informative as I wait for my Verizon NII :D

unknownxXx89: thanks man.

Martín Mihalitsianos: You should try to connect a USB microphone as the AT2020 USB "audio-technica" or anyone in this style of microphone

The Daily Note.Net: hi rastlach, thanks for your feedback. That makes sense....got it..just see which one works by tapping into it because there isn't a standard that everyone uses. I wasn't aware that the iphone doesn't let you do this....if that's what you were saying. Good to know.

jahzroc: Yellow is video not audio

The Daily Note.Net: Peter, thanks for this info. This looks like something exactly I was looking for but I had no idea these types of products existed so I didn't know where to look. I would have definitely bought this instead. Whether it would be better than what I'm using now, I'm not sure, but I'm sure it would have been fine for my application and expectations. Maybe when I go back to the US, I'll get this as the preamp is a 220v model.

Ra: Heya mate, just a heads up there are many different kinds of sterio+ to rca cables. There are camcorder ones, samasung video output ones, iphone out put ones and composite video out ones (RGB). The diffrence is both in the way the devices's are set up along with how the cable is wired. Sometimes all you need to do is plug a different colour cable to ports ie your yellow is audio, but sometimes you cant do anything at all, iphone is an example.

The Daily Note.Net: Sounds like that S Pen was malfunctioning. The pen is really sensitive, and picks up subtle touches to the surface no problem.

swamilainen: Yellow is ALWAYS video! You suck out the bass and treble to 'clean it up?? It's noisy because you aren't using balanced cables and proper impedance matching. Folks DO NOT listen to this guy! He knows nothing about proper recording/micing techniques, noise reduction or anything. He's stacking preamps which increases noise. This is something you might do in a guitar amp to obtain distortion. There's a good chance you'll burn the circuitry in your smart phone if you follow this guy's advice.

Ben Etter: I am flabergasted by the fact that someone who doesnt know what the red white and yellow ends of an RCA are for, is trying to teach anyone about somthing involving recording audio!

DcatsOut: The yellow plug is always video and red and white are your left and right channels.

The Daily Note.Net: Videos like these.

lez briddon: not all socket/cable combinations use standard colours etc, I have a sdcard video recorder and have to use white for video and red/yellow for audio.... just try what you have and use whichever works.

The Daily Note.Net: Yes, should be no problem.

The Daily Note.Net: Thanks! I'm glad to hear that I'm a part in expanding your knowledge about this device.

TheRubiconInvasion: worked @ radioshack in 1991, yellow is always video, red and white is left and right audio, RCA cables for dummies....LOL.....or....Here's Your Sign!!!

The Daily Note.Net: Hmmm...I think the 3 channels would all be audio in this case. L out, R out, mic in. In my cable, the yellow connector is indeed outputting audio (which I connected the white and yellow to my stereo headphones). I'm just wondering if they switched the red and yellow by mistake because I bought cheap cables. Or maybe the order on the minijack is different for galaxy phones compared to how a typical camcorder uses it.

JOlivo2011: What dafuq will you have tot record on the note 2?!?!?!?!?!?!

metalje666: hey mate < would this work with the Samsung galaxy s3 ?

nightstringers: Yellow will always be video

ryanspianoaccount: Best Mic review Mike. This guys reviews and knowledge is incredible . Love to see new reviews from you as always spot on

phillip renicker: Myst3que or mike can you tell me how the spen works? I preordered from AT&T but went to tmobile to check it out and I had to push really hard on the screen to get the pen to close snote

Mr3663: I record video with my Note 2 and would like to capture the sound while recording through a wireless microphone. Can you make a video on how to make this possible?

Hayden Wilde: Dose this work with galaxy note 1... and can you record videos using external mic input. ???

Radu Ioan Balan: I was wondering if I can use a mic like HAMA 57152 with my Galaxy Note II ? Do you have any ideea. I need to use a external microphone with my galaxy Note II but it must be a small one.

Martín Mihalitsianos: You should try to connect a USB microphone, for example AT2020 Audio-Technica or Blue microphones yeti

vidwiz12345: Hey MIke, thanks for the heads up that the gn2 will accept an audio input. I'm excited to see if if functions when recording video. Also, I'd recommend you put the EQ settings at 12:00 (0) for the most uncolored, direct and full fidelity sound

The Daily Note.Net: thanks for the suggestion!

Hayden Wilde: Cool thanks! :)

The Daily Note.Net: You can, but you need an adapter. You can't plug it in directly.

v65legend: Wait so I can hook up a small external mic to the headphone jack?

tybeejeffro: Have you tried a USB microphone such as the Blue Microphone series? You should be able to use it with an OTG adapter.

The Daily Note.Net: Samsung swaps the audio channels. In layman's terms, they swap the red with the yellow.

ronny risnes: I must add that i think i every case there will be a much better outcome if you could have used a ZOOM H4 or similar

The Daily Note.Net: Samsung swaps the audio channels. I guess so they can sell more earphones.

vinni3c: Hey, i have a note 2 and when i try to record video at a concert, the audio comes out all crackly (you can see examples on my page), do you have any solution on how to get rid of that? I'm assuming its because the gain is too high by default.

Nosrej Chaokad: How about a shotgun mic.?

gumamike: can u use instead of KV connection cable this one?? Startech.com 3.5mm 4 Pin to 2x 3 Pin 3.5mm Headset Splitter Adapter ? i dont want to ship it all the way from USA :), am from Europe. Thanks for respond

Ewechewb: Thanks so much for making this absolutely SUPERB video and making the samples available - I'll be downloading the right away. It's extremely helpful. I'm watching all of your Note ii videos and you really do seem to be testing it to the max'. BRILLIANT !
