– This is your complete novice'' s overview to the RODE Wireless GO II. These are incredibly small, small, cordless audio transmission systems, as well as they'' re actually simple to make use of. Nonetheless, there is a great deal of
little attributes built into these that make them even better than some of the other
microphones out on the marketplace. So let'' s just undergo a fast outline of what you'' re gon na locate in this video.First, we ' re gon na look at
the real systems themselves. Area two, we'' ll go through just how you utilize them and how you established them up effectively. Area 3 is gon na.
undergo RODE Central, which is an item of software application that RODE consists of.
that'' s on your computer. As well as it unlocks a number.
of additional performance out of these little Wireless GOs.And then

section four, we'' re gon na experience.
the back-up recording and also my process when I use this attribute. So whenever I get asked a recommendation for wireless audio, I always recommend the RODE Wireless GO II for a few factors. Leading is that they'' re very easy to utilize. They ' re incredibly simple. You basically connect them in. And when you have your.
settings established up the initial time, they'' re practically set.
to go with many circumstances. Currently, the various other factor is that you obtain two wireless.
transmitters for one receiver, which implies that you could.
have 2 people mic'' d up at any kind of time, and that audio is gon na be divided in such a way where you can control them. separately in the edit.And I ' ll explain just how'all.
of that functions later, but you wear'' t need to make use of
it. with this double performance, but it is good to have it just in situation you do require to.
mic up 2 individuals at the same time, as well as it'' s gon na deal with. your mirrorless video camera. So my Sony A7S Mark III,.
jobs wonderful with these. It'' s gon na deal with your apple iphone, as well as you can also plug these.
directly into your computer. And also the last factor is.
you get a back-up recording on the transmitter. There'' s extremely few. transmitters on the marketplace that have this back-up. tape-recording capability. As well as there ' s absolutely nothing this small.
And also the reason that the. backup recording is so special is that if there ' s any kind of sort of dropout, if there ' s any kind of time
. where the audio reduces out, you put on'' t lose that audio. On other cordless systems, if say there'' s a transmission problem in between the transmitter and also the receiver, you'' ve lost that audio.However, with the RODE Wireless GO II, you can establish this to have. a backup recording going the whole time of your shoot. And after that if there is problems, you just make use of the back-up recording, and afterwards you saved your audio. And also this is extremely important, especially when you ' re a solo developer. If you'' re capturing, doing audio, in front of camera, all at the same time, you can'' t be checking. audio while you ' re recording. So having this backup is just a safety and security web in instance anything occurs. (soft electronic songs) So initially, let'' s go into. what can be found in the box. You ' re gon na get a receiver. This is what you ' re gon na. connect into your video camera, your phone, your computer. And also this is what is taking the.
audio from the transmitters. Now you'' re gon na obtain two. transmitters in this box, and also'these are what you ' re. gon'na place on yourself or on the person that you ' re recording. And also it'' s what ' s sending.
the signal to the receiver. Currently you ' re also gon na get. three unclear windscreens, and also on these transmitters, there ' s actually a microphone constructed in.So you wear ' t have to make use of a lavalier mic. You could simply use this. As well as this microphone is really sensitive. So if you have it hooked on your tee shirt, your jacket or whatever, as well as there ' s some wind blowing on you', you ' re gon na listen to that in the type of( mimics static humming). So the fuzzy windscreen.
is gon na go on top of this and also eliminated every one of those wind seems. Now you'' re gon na obtain 3. USB-C to USB-A wires. You ' re gon na obtain one 3.5'TRS wire, and also
after that you ' re gon na get

. a tiny bring pouch.Now what ' s so awesome about. the arrangement is every little thing suit this pouch. And also this pouch alone is smaller sized than a lot of wireless systems on the marketplace. So you can throw this in your bag. You might toss this in your pocket, and also you constantly have a.
two-transmitter arrangement for any scenario. As well as for documentary.
shooters, for YouTubers, it just unlocks a lot of.
possible to not lug a great deal of extra audio equipment as well as.
have this performance to have this dual audio setup for any type of circumstance that you'' re in. So following allow ' s discuss the switches that you'' re gon na discover on the receiver. So starting on the front where.
it claims RODE Wireless GO II, you'' ll see a screen. As well as this is gon na inform.
you all the information that you require to recognize.
when you'' re out recording, we ' re gon na go over what all.
of this implies in a bit. On the top, you'' re gon na. have your power button. It has actually the RODE O on it.On the left side, you'' ll have a USB-C,'and you ' ll have your 3.5. millimeter TRS link. On the base you have on the left your gain control and mute button,
and after that your pair switch. as well as network selection button. And also in regards to buttons, that ' s it. It ' s a really easy system. And the last thing that. you ' re gon na locate is the clip on the back. Currently what ' s really cool around this clip is that it increases as a cool footwear install. So you wear ' t demand to have.

any kind of extra devices to place this on top of your camera.Now let ' s look at the transmitter. There ' s even much less switches on this. So on the front, you ' re just gon na see 2 lights in the top left-hand edge. The left one is your. connection sign, as well as'the right one is your battery. Now relocating right, you ' ll see that the. microphone is dead center. As well as after that next to that. is your TRS connection. It ' s 3.5 millimeters.
So if you ' re utilizing a lavalier mic, you just plug it in there as well as.

it overtakes the microphone that ' s in the RODE. Wireless GO transmitter.So you could use this either. as a microphone built-in, no wires, no nothing. You simply pop this on and start taping. Or you can connect in a lavalier mic right into the TRS link right here. Currently RODE makes an additional lavalier mic. This is smaller than. the actual transmitter. So if you desire a smaller sized profile, simply utilize the RODE lav, as well as you can place that on.
the edge of your shirt.And then on

the other end, you'' ll locate your 3.5. millimeter TRS link. And also you connect that right into the top of your RODE Wireless GO transmitter, as well as it takes control of the microphone that ' s built in to the actual transfer.
Currently RODE additionally has a headset. mic with a 3.5 millimeter input and also it functions the very same means. You stick it into the TRS link. It takes over the transmitter, and the sound is coming.
exclusively from the lavalier mic that discusses your ear.Now on the side, you ' re. gon na find your USB-C port for billing as well as connecting. to your computer.
And afterwards under, you'' re gon na find your power indication. That'' s the RODE O that. you ' ll see on the bottom. Now the clip is the exact.
exact same on the transmitter as the receiver. So if you, I did intend to place.
this right into a cold footwear mount, you easily can. You can likewise use it to clip.
on anywhere on your clothes. It simply makes it super simple.
that it'' s all integrated in such a tiny little package. All right, so following, allow
' s. speak about these windscreens, and also I'' ve discussed them quickly. You obtain three of them in the package, which are these little fuzzy points. As well as my child loves playing with these, however I love that RODE consisted of three, because you have one for every.
transmitter and afterwards a backup if you lose one, which.
occasionally will certainly occur. So the RODE Wireless GO II.
transmitter is omnidirectional. As well as what that means is.
that it'' s grabbing sound in a spherical pattern versus.
an extremely directional pattern.So if you ' re

making use of a shotgun microphone, it ' s gon na get sound. before that microphone as well as not behind it as well as. not off sideways.
The suggestion of a directional. microphone is you put it in addition to your video camera and also you obtain. what ' s before you, but not what ' s behind you. With an omnidirectional, you ' re generally catching. sound in kind of a 360. Just think about it like a round. So when you place your RODE.
Wireless GO right below on your upper body, it'' s gon na. get type of the sound all around here. And also this microphone is sensitive. So if there is any wind that.
hits the actual microphone on the transmitter, you'' re gon na listen to
a.( imitates static buzzing). So with the RODE Wireless GO.
II, you get the windscreen.And these are truly easy to put on. You ' ll see two little white. dots under of it.
And you ' ll desire to line. that up'with the two dots that you see on the. transmitter themselves.
And after that you do a half turn clockwise, as well as it ' s locked on there. Currently the original RODE. Wireless GO didn ' t have this fifty percent turn constructed into it. It was just a clip. As well as this blurry would certainly always drop off. With the version II,. you have this half turn.The unclear doesn ' t truly come off, as well as it makes it a lot much easier to utilize, due to the fact that you put on ' t need to stress over these popping off constantly. And also then to remove your windscreen, you do a half turn counter-clockwise, pop it off and also after that, you understand, place this someplace so you put on ' t shed it. You put on ' t requirement to maintain the. wind unclear'on at all times. You just actually require to utilize it if there ' s any kind of opportunity of. something hitting the mic, some kind of wind or air. So if you ' re outside, it most likely is a good suggestion to use it. However if you'' re in an. indoor controlled setup as well as there ' s not like a follower or. Air conditioning blowing on the microphone, then just use this as is. So allow me just quickly. touch on exactly how these work.RODE Wireless GO II ' s utilize.
an electronic transmission that ' s 2.4 gigahertz, as well as you stand up to 200 meters in variety from the transmitter to the receiver. So most circumstances you ' re. gon na have a clean signal. It ' s not gon na have any kind of problems
. And even if you ' re in. a jampacked environment, you'ought to
still obtain a clean. signal with the system.
Different systems make use of RF signal, which when you ' re in a crowded environment and also there ' s lots of RF jumping around, it would trigger a great deal of concerns. So for instance, I function with a great deal of. audio people on my shoots for my production company, and we ' ll make use of various designs of systems that get on'the RF signal. As well as if there ' s a whole lot of cops activity, if there'' s a great deal of chatter on radios, it winds up creating concerns with the signal.Now RODE Wireless GO II. uses a digital signal.

So you ' re not gon na have that. very same kind of interference'. However, it doesn ' t mean. that they ' re perfect, because you still wish to. preserve'a line of vision.
As quickly as you obtain in a busy setting, you go behind walls, you support a vehicle, you could lose the signal. To make sure that is why the back-up recording is so vital on these. Ideally, you wish to keep a line of sight between your transmitter, say it'' s on your camera over
. there, and the receiver.And you want to

see to it that you have a clean view. Currently where this becomes a.
trouble is if you'' re utilizing this state on your back, you place.
the transmitter on your back. Your body might obstruct some of the signal. And also particularly if you.
are doing state health and fitness and you go to the ground to do something like a problem or a floor workout, as well as your body covers this, it'' s probably gon na cut out totally. And so preferably you want.
to place this in a place where you'' re not gon na cover.
it totally with your body, or it'' s gon na go behind something. So if you ' re talking straight to video camera, putting it on your hip,.
putting it in a front pocket, putting it a little behind.
on the back of your pant line is gon na be better than.
if it'' s directly behind you. Now, one last point in this area, when you obtain the Wireless.
GO II out of package, they'' re instantly gon na be paired.So network one as well as channel.
2 is gon na be coupled to transmitter one as well as transmitter 2. And also as quickly as your system is combined, it'' s always gon na be combined. whenever you transform it on. So if this is transmitter one, and it'' s paired to direct one, every single time I turn on this.
transmitter and also the receiver, it'' s constantly gon na turn up as network one. So what'' s one point that ' s wonderful regarding the Wireless GO system. is you can make use of numerous of them at the same time. State you have several cams, you have a larger shoot taking place, as well as you'' re never ever gon na have. problems with the pairing. Now, if your Wireless.
GO does come unpaired, I'' m gon na reveal you in the following section exactly how you really tackle repairing. But out of box, these are currently coupled. You wear'' t have to do anything. You simply transform them on and also.
they'' re essentially all set to go. But'allow ' s enter into section 2, which is gon na review every one of the buttons and also exactly how you really use these.
devices to get excellent audio. (soft electronic music) Allowed'' s start at the actual beginning.How do you turn these

on? So under where this O is, you'' re just gon na press and also hold till you see the tool illuminate. There ' s no dual faucet, absolutely nothing like that. You just hold it till it transforms on. As well as the exact same is for the.
transmitter as the receiver. And also as soon as you transform.
both the transmitter and receiver on, you'' ll see the lights. shown on the transmitter, as well as on the receiver your.
display will certainly light up. And also if there'' s any type of sounds.
or if you'' re talking, you ' re
gon na begin seeing. benches dance around, which indicates that the.
transmitter is hearing audio. Now to turn these off, it'' s just duplicating how you turn them on. You simply press as well as hold the.
power button for a couple of seconds up until you see the lights.
go entirely dark. Now to disconnect your.
transmitter from your receiver, you'' re gon na click the button. on the right-hand side, which is your network selection. As well as you'' ll see a box turn up around one. You click it once again.

It ' ll appear around two.This is simply essentially picking. one microphone at a time. And after that when the box is. around that transmitter, you press and hold for three seconds. And also it ' s gon na detach the transmitter from the receiver.
Now, for a lot of you, there ' s. gon na be
no factor for you to ever separate the. transmitter from the receiver. But if your transmitter. does obtain disconnected for any type of factor, you generally,. you do the same thing. You choose the microphone, you push as well as hold for 3'secs.
It ' s gon na place the. receiver into pairing mode. And after that with your transmitter activated, you press as soon as on the power button, and afterwards it will instantly reconnect.Now let'' s talk concerning. connections for your receiver to the device that you'' re recording on. So for cams, you ' re gon na. utilize the 3.5 TRS connection. This will plug straight.
right into your camera'' s input. So a great deal of times on
. cams they'' ll be noted with a red ring around that link. Make certain that you'' re. linking into the audio input as well as not the earphone input. Also filmmakers, that'' ve been doing this for a very very long time, mistakenly plug it in.
the wrong port sometimes. So just make certain you'' re. connecting into the audio input which you'' re monitoring.
that you'' re obtaining signal on your cam from the receiver. Currently you might additionally link this to your phone or your computer system. Currently what'' s really cool down concerning the RODE Wireless GO II is that when you connect right into your.
computer system, you use the USB-C. And when you'' re making use of the USB-C to send audio to your computer, you can utilize the TRS connection. to plug in earphones as well as actually check your.
audio utilizing headphones.So if you ' re plugging. directly right into a cam, you ' re gon na have to connect into.'your camera ' s headphone port, which some cams put on ' t. have an earphone'port. They simply have an audio input. So in those scenarios, you ' re not gon na be able. to monitor your audio.
Nevertheless, when you ' re. connecting into your computer system, you can use this TRS connection as your earphone monitoring. And also the very same thing goes for your phone. You use the USB-C and you. need to get an unique
wire that ' s not consisted of that'goes from USB-C to. your phone ' s link. And afterwards you ' ll be able to. plug this into your phone.
And this transforms right into a. digital audio transmitter versus an analog. So when you ' re plugging into. your computer system or your phone, you ' re gon na utilize that tool to regulate how loud you want the.
audio to be recording. However then when you'' re. connecting it into your cam, you'' re gon na utilize a mix. of your cam settings and also the gain settings on the receiver to obtain the finest appearing sound'.
So whether you ' re a creator. that uses a camera or a phone or you wish to simply connect. every little thing right into your computer and utilize this for Zoom meetings, you can use the RODE Wireless GO for a lot of different applications.Let ' s speak about the'battery life on the RODE Wireless GO II. So these will certainly last for about seven hours. And also you have a USB-C on the side, and also you bill these making use of a USB-C wire. Now you can continue to. use your RODE Wireless GO while it ' s charging. So if'you might plug in. an external source of power as well as you can proceed to utilize. them while it ' s charging and also the same thing for the transmitters. Nonetheless, it ' s not gon na. make that much sense to use a transmitter while it ' s charging, because you need to have.
that on you somewhere. So the only time that 7.
hrs is gon na be a concern is if you'' re trying to videotape throughout the day. So you'' ll either have.
to have a backup set, or what you can do is.
have a backup battery for the receiver, plug it.
in when it'' s getting reduced, and after that just switch out the transmitter if you'' re simply taping on one at a time.That is one downside with the system. There'' s no battery that you can swap out. Nevertheless, they do bill rather fast, and also you just need to ensure to maintain them billed all the time. All right, following, let'' s. go over what you locate on the screen for the receiver. So today I have both.
transmitters turned on, and also I'' m making use of split recording. And I'' ll describe what divided recording versus merged recording.
remains in a bit. So on top, you'' re. gon na see your microphones in order, one as well as 2, and the lines that are jumping around, that'' s your audio signal. So on the left side is reduced quantity, and on the right side is high quantity. So you can see as I'' m speaking it bounces up towards that best side. And also in the yellow is where you'' re striking kind of the top variety of the microphone. Currently, underneath that, you'' re gon na see basically three squares. Now one is transmitter one as well as the details for that transmitter. The middle is sort of.
some global settings. And afterwards on the right is 2. And that is for transmitter two.Now, if you press the set.
switch or the network selector, the 1/2 on the bottom, you'' ll see a box appear. around one, click it once again. It'' ll turn up around 2. So in each transmitter, you'' re gon na find the battery level. That'' s the battery indicator. You ' re gon na find your audio level, which is the bouncing line near the bottom. And afterwards you'' re gon na have. your receiver stamina, which is ideal beside the battery. To ensure that ' s how great the
signal. is in between your transmitter and also your receiver. Currently in the center, let'' s talk.
concerning the global settings. The little wedge form on top, that is your name gain control. To ensure that'' s just how much quantity is. coming out of the receiver. As well as when you click the gain.
switch on the left side under, you'' ll see that it transforms. As well as right now I have it in.
the 3 selector mode.So there

' s 3 different gain results, which is zero, unfavorable.
12 as well as negative 24. However you just use the switch on the bottom to change just how much you'' re outputting. And also out of package, it will certainly come with establishing absolutely no,.
negative 12 and unfavorable 24. No is when it'' s totally filled up. Adverse 12 is when it'' s half filled, and also unfavorable 24 is when it'' s. the least quantity filled. As well as when you'' re doing audio,.
you just wish to think that absolutely no resembles the top of your sound. That is the loudest that you.
can ever be with your sound. You can never ever exceed zero. So decibels operate in unfavorable. So they decrease. So if you'' re recording at negative 24, that ' s gon na be a great deal quieter than recording at unfavorable.
12 or negative absolutely no. So just think about no at the top, as well as you'' re functioning your method down. Currently beneath your gain indication is gon na be the receiver battery. So you'' ll see three batteries.
on this in any way times, if you have all 3 activated, and after that alongside that.
is a little sunlight icon, and also this is for your backlit display.So on the screen,

you can have this dim as well as it. enters into power saver mode. So to trigger that, today it ' s not in power saver mode, yet you simply click once. on the power switch. And also then the edges of that. sunburst will disappear.It'' ll just be a dot in the center. And currently you'' re in power saver mode. So after 10 secs,
you'' ll see the screen dim. So you'' re not making use of as much battery power to have the display presented. Currently, if you simply click the
power switch as soon as again, the backlit screen
will constantly be transformed on as well as it will certainly be much brighter. Now on the transmitter,
you have your two lights, you'' re gon na have your battery indicator, and after that you'' re gon na have your connection indication. So when they'' re both blue, that indicates it ' s billed as well as you have a solid connection in between the transmitter as well as the receiver. When your battery is reduced on your transmitter, your battery indication will certainly start flashing. And also if it'' s blinking faster, that suggests you'' re nearly completely out of battery. Now on the receiver, the little battery icon will certainly adjustment from brownish-yellow to red to show you that the battery degrees are obtaining low.So eco-friendly and also a strong blue light implies that you have lots of power. Yet if you'' re recalling the transmitters or you'' re seeing an amber or red indicator on the receiver, that suggests you'' re running out of battery as well as you require to bill them soon. All right, so let'' s talk regarding exactly how you would utilize this as a solitary transmitter or a twin transmitter arrangement. As well as what we'' re gon na chat regarding is combined versus split recording. And also after that I likewise wish to discuss the safety and security channel. So out of the box, this comes in the split recording mode, which primarily implies that a person channel is videotaping transmitter one. And the various other channel is taping transmitter 2. So just how audio jobs exists is a left and also an appropriate channel.If you place on

your headphones, there'' s a channel individually for both the left and the right. As well as when you'' re recording in video camera, you ' re taping a stereo set. That ' s a left as well as a right. Currently, if you ' re utilizing the
original RODE Wireless GO or say, simply a shotgun microphone, and also you connect into the audio port on your electronic camera, it'' s gon na be videotaping on both the left and the right network. Now with the RODE Wireless GO II, you can divide that. So you can have your left network recording microphone one and also your right channel recording microphone two. And also the factor that you would desire to do this is to make sure that in your modifying software program, you can divide up the stereo pair and also make two mono pairs.So stereo

implies a left and also a right network. As well as mono implies primarily the very same thing is being recorded on both the left and the right. And having the ability to divide your stereo pair right into two mono tracks allows you to manage each one of those individually. So if you'' re videotaping 2 people with two various transmitters, you can go in your editing and enhancing software program and do things like mute one transmitter when that person'' s not talking, or you could experience as well as transform the audio degrees separately of each various other. And also you'' re primarily providing yourself much more choices to be able to do audio editing in message. So if you'' re gon na be making use of this as a solo designer or a specific, and also you'' re only making use of one transmitter to the one receiver, after that you'' re gon na desire to make use of the joined mode. And also under of your receiver, both switches when clicked concurrently as well as held for three seconds will transform the signal from the split signal to the joined signal. And just how you'' ll understand that you ' re. in the joined versus split is exactly how the top bar is displayed.When you ' re

Sleeve and Lanyard for GoPro HERO8 Black - Black
Sleeve and Lanyard for GoPro HERO8 Black - Blue
Tripod Mounts for All GoPro Cameras

in split mode,. you ' ll see a one as well as a two, and you'' ll see two various. bars jumping entrusted to right, generally giving your audio degrees. When you put it right into joined setting, it generally suggests that instead.
of being a stereo track, you'' re doing a twin mono track, which means that both.
the left as well as the right are videotaped the exact same on both tracks. So if you'' re just making use of one. transmitter and also the receiver, you put on'' t desire it to just. be appearing of one ear. So you want to make certain that you put it right into the joined mode to make sure that you'' re recording on both tracks and you obtain good audio from.
your left as well as your right. If you have it in the split recording mode and you'' re using one transmitter and after that you use that recording.
in your editing software program, you'' re gon na have to change it from a stereo to a twin mono in editing and enhancing. And if you fail to remember to do that, well, when you outcome your video clip, you'' re just gon na hear. sound out of one side. So if you'' re on speakers, you'' ll just hear it out. of the left channel.Or if you ' re

paying attention'to earphones, you'' ll just hear it out of the left ear. So you either have to.
ensure that it'' s combined on the receiver, or you'' re gon na be combining.
it in your editing software program. Now with split recording, you'' re recording each. network individually, as well as that'' s primarily all you can do. But with the joined recording, you can divide that into 2 networks and bring one network 20 decibels less than the various other network,.
generally a reduced volume.This is called a security channel. So if you ' re in a scenario where the sound is gon na. be changing a whole lot, there ' s really highs and also really lows,'and you put on ' t understand if. it'' s gon na be incredibly quiet or incredibly crazy loud, you may intend to turn.
on the security network. And generally in the joined mode, you'' re taping 2. channels separately, yet it'' s the same specific recording, simply one is quieter than the other. Currently, when you'' re utilizing. the RODE Wireless GO II, you put on'' t to utilize the split recording when you ' re utilizing two transmitters. You can also make use of the merged recording, however simply keep in mind, you'' re not gon na be able to independently control each transmitter if you'' re in the merged recording, because what ' s occurring. is that both transmitters are being recorded the same on. both channels on your sound. So if there is any type of. scenario where you desire to transform one transmitter from the various other, you can ' t do that in the merged mode.But when you ' re in this joined setting, you have accessibility to that safety and security network. So if you ' re in an.
setting where you intend to make use of two transmitters and also. the sound is all over the place and also you'wish to have
that safety network, you ' re gon na need to put. it into the joined mode and after that use that safety and security channel.
So if you ' re a solo designer and you ' re only utilizing one. transmitter and the receiver, I recommend just putting. it into the joined mode as well as just don ' t usage that safety and security'network unless you definitely require it.
Currently, if you ' re a person that ' s. making use of both the transmitter and also the receiver as well as you have. two people talking on video camera, I recommend making use of the split mode. And after that in your editing and enhancing'software application, you ' re gon na have to. divide your stereo track into 2 double mono tracks. And after that that allows you.
to edit them independently. And also you put on'' t need to worry. regarding the sound being combined, as well as you can do all of.
your editing and enhancing in post.It takes

a little longer to do that, however you do have more versatility. Currently let'' s speak about. silencing the transmitter. So when you'' re out filming, you can mute the transmitter to ensure that it'' s not sending. the signal to the receiver, but everything is still switched on. Currently you could desire to use this attribute if you'' re in between shots and also you don'' t demand to. actually record anything from the transmitter, state.
somebody'' s gon na the bathroom, or, you understand, you simply don'' t intend to have that audio being taped, specifically when you have the.
backup recording switched on. So to silence the transmitter,.
there'' s two means to do it.
You can either do it on. the transmitter itself, or you can do it on the receiver. So on the receiver, you ' ll use your network'choice. You ' ll go to which transmitter.

that you'wish to mute.And after that you ' re gon na. click the left button on the bottom, which is the mute switch. And you ' ll see a little microphone with a slash through it appear.'You ' ll also see the bar that ' s underneath won ' t be turning up audio anymore. There ' s no sound coming. to the transmitter, because it ' s muted. And if you ' re in split mode, you ' ll be able to see that there is no sound coming. through that channel any longer. Currently, to transform it back on, you simply do the same thing in opposite. Utilize the network choice tool, click the mute button on the left side, as well as you ' ll see the sound channels appear in'both the places that they were in the past. Currently to mute yourself on the transmitter, it'' s really rather simple.
You simply single press on the power button, and also currently it ' s muted. Currently there ' s no indication. on the actual transmitter that you ' ve been silenced. You have to consider the receiver, as well as you ' ll see that the little microphone with the reduce pops up as well as you won ' t be getting audio anymore.So just something to maintain in
mind, it is rather very easy to press. this button and mute on your own. So make certain that you wear ' t press this. And also prior to you start
tape-recording, make certain that you have. audio concerning the receiver. Because the last thing that you desire to do is mistakenly mute yourself.
with the transmitter, do a whole recording, and.
after that concern discover later on that you muted the whole.
thing as well as you have no sound. So let'' s discuss gain control. On the receiver, you can outcome.
exactly how loud the audio is mosting likely to your camera, and you have gain settings, which generally I described earlier.In the fundamental

setting, you.
have three settings, no, negative 12, and unfavorable 24. And this is just how loud.
you'' re sending the signal to your video camera. Since you could be obtaining clean sound on the Wireless GO transmitter, but it could be super loud in your video camera and also you'' re obtaining like. actually'terrible audio. So you ' re gon na utilize a combination. of your cam setups and your Wireless GO II settings to be able to get the very best. seem out'of the system.
So there ' s two means that. you can utilize gain control.
The fundamental one appears. of box set up already, and that ' s the 3.

actions we talked about.Now there ' s likewise a 10 step. So if you ' re somebody
who. desires to dial in your setups a little bit extra, you.
can consume to 10 actions on the Wireless GO receiver. You need to go in your RODE Central, as well as I'' ll show you where that is, however you can switch on the advanced setting, which is 10 actions of gain.And it goes from zero to negative 30, and also essentially providing. you a lot more choices when it
pertains to your control. Now, bear in mind, this. gain control is just going to affect you if you ' re. using the 3.5 TRS'connection. So how you wish to utilize. this with your video camera is primarily you desire. your cam recording as
reduced as feasible in cam, and you want to improve your signal making use of the RODE Wireless GO II.So on a cam there ' s. what ' s called

a sound floor.
And also if you improve your sound. signal in your video camera
, you ' re gon na listen to extra.
sound behind-the-scenes. (fixed humming).
You'' ll hear like fixed behind-the-scenes. So if you have your cam recording as high as it possibly can, outputting at the most affordable it potentially can, it'' s not gon na seem extremely good.Ideally, what you wish to.
do is turn your electronic camera to its most affordable setup.
as well as after that increase your gain on the RODE Wireless GO II. As well as also you'' ll wish to. make use of the manual setups in your camera. So on your cam, you.
could do car sound, or you might do hand-operated sound. The issue is when it'' s in car, it ' s gon na be varying up and also down. So you wish to place it right into manual audio. You intend to bring it.
down as reduced as possible without transforming it off.And after that

you want to enhance.
your gain as high as feasible to where you'' re obtaining a clean. signal on the camera itself. Now, what is a clean signal? What I discussed previously.
is that sound goes from absolutely no, which is like glimpsing at the really leading, and afterwards it decreases. As well as you intend to videotape.
in between negative 12 and zero. So ideally you want your sound striking around that negative six mark. A whole lot of cams will.
have a yellow sign when it'' s in that range. where it'' s starting to get up towards coming to a head,.
but it'' s not fully peaking. And afterwards red is where it'' s fully coming to a head and you'' re losing audio. So you'' ll just want to do an examination. You ' ll wish to switch on.
your RODE Wireless GO. You'' ll want to have your topic.
or you talking at the level that you'' re mosting likely to be chatting at and afterwards change your.
audio to get your signal to where it needs to be. So detailed, this is what you'' ll do. Activate your camera, plug everything in, turn your camera to.
the least expensive setup feasible for audio without turning it off, then place your gain at no.
on the RODE Wireless GO.Now, do an example, begin speaking and see just how it'' s. impacting the audio levels on your electronic camera. If the audio levels are.
simply striking that red, well, we can lower the.
gain in the RODE Wireless GO II to a point where the.
sound is not totally striking in that red any longer. As well as it'' s someplace in.
the green as well as yellow. You wish to be taping.
around that negative 6 mark and a little bit reduced if there is a whole lot of.
fluctuation in the way that you'' re talking. Currently, if your audio tape-recording'' s as well reduced, it ' s at the very bottom of. what we ' re speaking about right here, as well as you ' re like obtaining very little audio, well, when you bring that.
right into your modifying software program and also you'increase that to. where it needs to be, you ' re gon na hear a ton of'noise, (fixed buzzing)'. and also it ' s additionally simply, it ' s not gon na sound good.
So the'solution for that. is you ' re gon na have to put your RODE Wireless GO II at zero, and after that enhance your cam. gain up until you get to a factor where you'' re obtaining that. sound in that negative 6 to unfavorable 12

range.And once more, when you'' re doing this, you want to be talking at the degrees that you'' re actually. going to be chatting at. So if you'' re a person. who ' s gon na be screaming or obtaining truly thrilled.
in your discussion, well, you intend to make certain that you'' re examining those levels when you'' re doing the arrangement. Since if you'' re simply. talking typical and you understand, this is what you'' re doing your test at, but then you begin going truly loud and also you'' re doing this, and ah, well, you ' re not gon na.
obtain a clean recording. And I deal with a lot of.
health and fitness specialists. As well as this is one point that I have to fret about all the time is that their voice obtains much.
louder when they get delighted. So I need to ensure that I'' m recording at the correct degrees for.
when that exhilaration happens. And I could make use of the safety and security.
channel because circumstance, if there'' s a great deal of fluctuation, as well as this is where you'' re. gon na have to make a decision if you need that safety network and also you'' re gon na have. to weigh the benefits of utilizing the split.
versus merged recording.But for a solo developer, it ' s gon na be a great deal much easier, due to the fact that you don ' t need to stress. about that split recording.
One last note regarding configuration is. that if you ' re utilizing something like a lavalier mic or a headset mic, you desire to make certain that you. plug it right into the transmitter as well as that you ' re doing. these audio adjustments with the'microphone that. you ' re gon na be using.Because plugging these.
microphones into the transmitter is gon na transform the signal a little, and additionally where you position. it is gon na transform the signal. So if you have a microphone over the ear, exactly on your mouth, it ' s gon na seem much louder than if you have a lavalier. mic down in the direction of your upper body. So you wish to make sure.
that whatever is established how you ' re gon na utilize it and also after that do your audio. setup after that point. All right, so allow ' s speak about. the reduced level of sensitivity mode.
So if you ' re in a circumstance. where the microphone that you ' ve linked into the transmitter is recording too hot or if you ' re making use of something like the meeting handheld adapter, you could desire to accessibility. the reduced level of sensitivity setting. Which primarily makes the. microphone much less delicate. So your recording is not so loud. Currently there ' s two methods to access this setting. One is on the receiver and. the various other remains in RODE Central. As well as I ' ll reveal you when. we get to that section. But to access it on the receiver, you ' re gon na use your. channel option icon.Click on the channel as well as'after that press as well as hold the mute switch.

And also you ' re gon na intend to. hold it for three secs till you see this little blue.
upside-down triangle turn on. And to switch off reduced level of sensitivity setting, you just do the exact same point backwards. Currently, if your mic is silenced as well as. you see that little mute icon, you can still turn on.
your reduced level of sensitivity setting, but you ' re not gon na see. the little blue triangle. As quickly as you switch off the mute switch, you ' ll see that the triangle does pop up. So that ' s simply something to bear in mind. The low level of sensitivity mode. is the exact same position as the mute setting. So if you put it into. low level of sensitivity setting, make certain that you switch off the mute so you can see that it ' s there. So currently we ' ve reviewed whatever when it'pertains to the. receivers as well as the transmitters and also exactly how you utilize these with.
all the physical buttons on the tools themselves.Now let ' s go into the RODE Central, as well as I ' m gon na show you'. just how you make use of RODE Central to alter a few of these.
setups, upgrade your devices, as well as likewise just how you accessibility.
a few of these features that aren ' t available from the switches that are on the real RODE. Wireless GO themselves.( soft digital music )To download the RODE Central, you ' re gon na go to RODE ' s website and download it onto your computer system', whether you have a Mac or a COMPUTER. As well as when you open it for the very first time, this is the screen that you ' re gon na get. It simply says, “Please connect the RODE. tool to start.” So you ' re gon na require a port cable television.
I have a MacBook Pro that makes use of USB-C. So I have a USB-C to USB-C. to connect right into my computer. Now you wear ' t need to. switch on the transmitter or the receiver to connect it in. You just need to connect it right in, and also it will instantly. switch on from the bus power on your computer.So let ' s begin with the receiver. So I ' m gon na plug this into my USB-C, as well as immediately it will connect to your RODE Wireless GO receiver. And you ' ll see right below, everything stands out up for the receiver. Currently I ' m gon na get an additional cord. As well as I ' m also gon na plug in the. transmitter at the exact same time. As well as currently what you ' ll see is that in the top left-hand. corner of RODE Central, it ' s revealing both the.
transmitter as well as the receiver'. Transmitter is TX as well as receiver is RX. So if you want to, you can plug all three.
of these in at once.And they all appear below in. that upper left-hand edge. You put on ' t need to do it one at a time. So allow ' s open up the receiver initially. So with several plugged in, I ' ll just click on the. receiver, the one that claims RX.
And also you ' ll see that near the bottom, there ' s currently an indicator that claims another device is linked. So in the upper left-hand edge, you ' re just gon na see which. gadget I ' m taking a look at, the firmware version as well as the battery level with a little battery symbol. Now allow ' s go into the settings. So'first setting is your backlit screen. This is that power saver setting.
that we discussed previously. You can transform it on and off below. You have your gain mode. So earlier I was claiming.
with the gain mode, you have the three actions.
or you have the 10 steps.Well, this is where you change it between the 3 and the 10. So now, coarse, that.
is the three-step mode. I'' ll adjustment it to penalty. Which'' s where you could.
go via the 10 actions. Currently in the following box, you'' ll see the gain, as well as I could alter it. So unfavorable 30, adverse 27, unfavorable 24, 21, 18, 15, 12, 9, 6, 3, as well as absolutely no. Currently you can also change these settings on the receiver themselves. As well as instead of being.
that little wedge symbol, you'' ll actually see the decibels turn up when you have it in great mode. So as you can see right below, I'' m clicking via as well as I'' m changing it making use of the gain control.
button on the receiver, and it'' s going via.
the different numbers.Now the following button over is. your split and your joined mode. And you'' ll see that. when it ' s in split setting, there ' s no safety network choice. Nevertheless, when you click.
over to merged setting, your safety network now is offered, and also you can turn that on or off. So if you want to turn.
on your security channel, you need to connect in your.
RODE Wireless GO receiver, ensure it'' s in joined mode. So either transform it on using RODE Central or both switches on the receiver. And afterwards you can transform.
on that particular safety channel. And when that safety channel is switched on, you'' ll see heaven sign.
on the receiver itself. Now, the last point that you can transform on the receiver is the.
capability of your power switch.So as we'' ve been chatting around in this video clip, when you click this, it'' s. your backlit display.It ' s the power saver setting. Nonetheless, the last switch.
in RODE Central permits you to transform this to marker. And also so if you don'' t requirement to. accessibility that backlit setting when you'' re recording, you might utilize this as a marker. And also pens come into play when you'' re doing a back-up recording.
So this is where you switch. it from a backlit switch to a pen button'. As well as while you ' re recording, if'you click this power switch as soon as, it ' s gon na set a marker. on that particular back-up recording, as well as this is essential, if you
wish to find a particular. factor in state a meeting, as well as you just wish to make'sure that you know where that ' s at,. you click the'marker button. Or if there ' s audio dropouts, you ' ll see the pens enter play.Now beneath that ' s gon na. show your battery level. When it'' s linked into your computer, it is likewise charging the battery. It'' s gon na reveal your clock. So it ' s gon na show what time. it is and also what date it is. And also if you'' re traveling, you '
ll wish to'reset this. to ensure that it ' s accurate for the place that you'' re at.
It ' s gon na set it to. your computer ' s clock. So if your computer switches over, you wan na make sure to change'your RODES, to ensure that they ' re not on. a different time zone if you '
re recording. halfway throughout the globe. Below that is your firmware version. And if your firmware needs an upgrade, there'' ll be a switch to upgrade it. You ' ll simply update it from RODE Central. It just takes a pair minutes, and afterwards it will be entirely updated. And also after that underneath that,.'it ' s gon na have an equipment ID. To ensure that'' s it for the receiver. Currently let ' s enter into the transmitter, and also the transmitter is.
a bit different.So you have both your back-up recordings, if you ' ve done back-up. recordings as well as your setups.
So in the upper left-hand. corner, you ' ll struck the equipment symbol, and also'that ' s gon na pull. up every one of your settings.
Whereas if you require to. accessibility your back-up recording, you ' ll click one of those below the transmitter symbol. And it ' s gon na bring up. your backup recording.
So let ' s enter into the settings'initially. Now these setups are. a bit various than
what you discover on the receiver. First is your backup recording,. and also you have 3 options.
You have always, you have. backup, and also you have off.These are gon na can be found in the off setting. So both setups for your. back-up recording is either whenever you switch on the transmitter, it starts tape-recording a back-up, or whenever it attaches to the receiver, it starts recording. So constantly suggests that whenever. you activate your transmitter, it ' s obtaining a back-up recording. And back-up means that when. you link your receiver to your transmitter. as well as both are switched on, after that it ' s gon na start. the back-up recording.
All right, so following is the pad feature that we spoke around earlier. So you can transform this on or off. in the RODE Central as well.Now, following is your LEDs. So if your LEDs are also.

brilliant, you can lower these. They don ' t have to go to complete illumination. You have the choice to either. make them lower or intense.
And also last is the setups. for your power button.
So on the transmitter, you can alter this from the mute switch. So instead of being the mute button, if you ' re bothered with hitting it, after that you could change this to none where it doesn ' t do anything, or you could transform this to pen. So if you need to use this. to mark different things that come up in your recording, you can do it on the transmitter and also not always the receiver.So if you ' re somebody that ' s a solo developer and you wish to make sure. to mark your recording for different points.
as you'' re going along, you could transform on your marker button and after that anywhere your transmitter.
is, simply click it when. And also you established a marker for on your own. So you have 3 options.
keeping that power button. And if you don'' t desire to. utilize the mute or the marker, simply placed it on none. So there'' s no chance of you.
mistakenly muting something. Now, underneath that, you'' ll. see your recording mode. And also this remains in concerns.
to your back-up recording. So when you'' re in always setting, the only recording that you have accessibility to is relayed high quality or uncompressed, and also you'' ll obtain 7 hours. worth of backup recording on your transmitter.Now, if you ' re in backup setting, you'can change this between. common as well as program.
Standard is pressed, which allows you to obtain around. 40 hrs well worth of audio.
And after that the broadcast. high quality is uncompressed, which is about 7 hrs. Currently below the recording mode, you ' ll see exactly how much data has been recorded on your transmitter. Today, it ' s revealing that I have about 4 hours. staying in uncompressed.
If I switch this to basic, you ' ll see that 28 hours remain.And if I desire to format. the internal hard disk drive, I just click the switch.
on the right-hand side, the little trashcan, as well as it will entirely. clear out all my audio.
Currently, beneath that,. you ' ll see your clock. As well as once again, you desire to change this relying on where you ' re at worldwide, as well as you'' ll see your firmware and there'' ll be a switch to upgrade this if you require to update your transmitter.
Now, when you have back-up. recordings on your transmitter, you can simply click on each recording as well as you can pay attention to them. So you ' ll simply click the recording that you want to pay attention to, and also you can begin playing. it as well as you can avoid around to the different markers.
So as an example, this one. has a whole lot of markers, and you can browse them using this button alongside the play button.
Now it ' s displaying the. time in the recording, and after that time of day below that.And if you have markers.
they are mosting likely to pop up. As well as something that'' s fantastic.
about the RODE Wireless GO II when you have the back-up.
recording activated, if there is a dropout, state the receiver signal falls to no as well as you'' re not getting that transmission, it instantly sets a pen. So you can see in this.
recording, I had a great deal of dropouts. There should have been.
some connection problem between the transmitter and also receiver. Which'' s showing to.
me that I need to see to it that I download this backup recording as well as make use of the back-up recording.And I can see the

particular. times at where I had
this issue. Currently there ' s no method to draw. all the backup recordings off the transmitter simultaneously. When you need to go data by documents and afterwards click the Export button in the top right-hand edge. So I ' m on Record 00010, and also. I'click the Export switch, as well as a little dialogue. box is gon na turn up.
I can rename the documents. I might transform my settings to. what I need for the export.
And after that I might click Export. And also when you ' re using a back-up recording, you have to do each one. of these individually. There ' s no method to do them all at as soon as. As well as that ' s it for the RODE Central. That ' s all the functionality. that you have access to.
As well as it is something that you ' re gon na have to utilize every now and then, particularly when you ' re. doing backup recordings.
So the last section of this video clip, let ' s discuss operations. as well as making use of backup recordings.
( soft digital music) So my operations when functioning. with the RODE Wireless GO II is that I always maintain my backup videotaping on.And that ' s even if.

if there ' s any type of problems, I always recognize I'can go. to my backup recording and also salvage
it. So I make use of the back-up mode and also. the back-up setting is the one that allows you to use. the standard high quality or program quality. I normally keep it in program top quality, so I recognize I ' m always. obtaining the most effective sound.
Now, how the back-up. feature works is essentially as quickly as you transform on the.
transmitter as well as the receiver, it'' s gon na begin the back-up recording and you ' ll see the REC on the display. So to see to it that I'' m. not just rolling the back-up in any way times, in between takes, I'' ll simply shut off my receiver. Which generally stops.
the backup recording. And if I'' m recording another person as well as they have the transmitter on, I wear'' t need to inquire to. keep transforming it on and off. I know I have 7 hours.
well worth of taping time. So if I'' m capturing and also I. understand these aren'' t gon na get on for more than 7 hrs, after that I wear'' t actually need to. worry regarding the transmitter taking place and off whatsoever times.If I ' m behind video camera, I'' ll just see to it that I. turn the receiver on and also off as well as that cuts the back-up recording. Now, if I'' m filming myself, I would place it in the constantly mode. Which essentially implies as quickly as I switch on the transmitter, it begins videotaping a backup recording. And also this is better because if.
the cam is away from me, state I'' m doing a talking scene, and I placed the camera over there someplace, well, I could just flip on my transmitter, look at it as well as make certain it'' s activated. I understand it ' s doing a backup recording, and I recognize that I'' m. constantly secure with my sound. Currently, if I'' m capturing solo as well as I'' m simply utilizing one transmitter', I ' ll put it right into the joined mode. As well as if I'' m capturing with 2 transmitters, I'' ll placed it right into the split mode.And if I'' m using two transmitters, I such as to maintain it right into the back-up setting so that when I shut off my receiver, both transmitters quit backup.
recordings at the exact same time. Currently, when I'' m made with my. shoot,'I ' ll bring up RODE Central. And also if it'' s a client job, after that I'' ll simply
draw all. the back-up recordings. As well as I simply go one at a time. I click the back-up recording. I struck Export as well as I put it into the folder that it requires to go.And however you have to.
do that with every recording. That'' s something that ' s. sort of irritating regarding using the software application as well as.
using these backup recordings. There'' s no other way to actually undergo and also download them at one time. As well as an additional discouraging point is there'' s no chance
to. activate the back-up recording while both the transmitter.
and also receiver are activated. You have to use among those two settings where either you transform off the transmitter or you transform off the receiver.And it would certainly be

nice. if there was a feature where when both are activated, I can start a backup. videotaping at a specific point
and afterwards stop it at a particular point. Nonetheless, that feature doesn ' t exist. So you need to transform them on and off to be able to turn on and also.
off that backup recording. Now, another thing.
that you simply intend to make with your process is we'' ll make certain that you erase your transmitter before you go out and shoot once more, due to the fact that there'' s no way. to get rid of the transmitter when you'' re out working with a job. You need to do it on RODE Central. So simply ensure that.
before you go out as well as shoot that your tools are totally billed as well as plug them in and also check on RODE Central to make certain that your back-up.
recording is established up appropriately. And after that likewise to make certain.
there'' s no back-up recordings on the transmitter themselves.And once you ' re established, once all'the setups save. on the RODE Wireless GO
II, so if you ' re somebody who ' s doing the same. settings over and over, you'' re really not gon na have.
to set these up that usually. However if you'' re
somebody that ' s. transforming various scenarios, you'' ll simply intend to make sure.
to enter into your RODE Central and also ensure all your.
settings are set up properly prior to you head out and also shoot.So next I extremely suggest you. look into this video clip below. It undergoes exactly how to. capture much better audio and also
get the most effective recording. from any circumstance.
I ' ll see you there.
