Hi, this is my first post - so I hope i'm in the right place. My kids are into movie-making, and we've started various projects filming with my iPad Mini. Outfitted a kit with a Makayama mount, wide angle lens, some lighting, etc. I want my audio not to record from the built-in Mini mic, but form external mics. I've looked at lots of videos of people doing this - and decided to try a wireless route (why make things easy?). - From Amazon i purchased the Audio 2000s AWM6023 (its 2 wireless VHF Lavoliers that talk to a base unit) - I also got a 10' cable that takes the 1/4" mixed output from that system, and converts it to a 3-pole 3.5M male plug - Then i got the StarTech adapter that takes a 3-pole 3.5mm and turns it into a 4-pole (purpose built to take an external mic and run it into an iOS device) Here are the products (this is my first post, system won't let me post links!): Audio 2000s AWM6023 [h=1]HOSA CMP-110 Mono Interconnect - 3.5mm TRS to 1/4" TS StarTech - Model: MUYHSMFF[/h] Only problem i have is that it doesn't work! I can't get the Mini to recognize the external mic. I have turned everything on, plugged everything in and left plugging the 4-pole into the Mini as the last step (per other forum posts i've seen about the StarTech cable). But i can't get it to work. I'm worried the whole Wireless Mic kit from Audio2000 is just powered wrong and doesn't output in a compatable way? Thanks in advance!
