First, we started on the connectors - which seemed to be the right ones.
After some investigation, we found that the wiring on the MKE400 was the issue.
Sennheiser was considering an adapter cable - turns out the combination is at the mic, not the connector end so that would not work.
They are thinking...
In the meantime, the MKE400 will not work - you need to find a mic that not only has a balanced connector, but the correct isolated wiring behind it.
I know that many at RED HQ curse the mini-XLR's, but how I wish they were on the front of the EPIC and Scarlet cameras...
I saw this thread just now.
So I guess getting another mic would be best.They asked that I post this for the time being:
Due to the unique connector and wiring scheme of the Scarlett camera, the MKE 400 with its standard cable will not operate. We are investigating an adapter cable and will keep users posted on developments. Thank you.
Or do you still think an adapter could work?Get a 3.5mm stereo (female) to 3.5mm mono (male) adapter at Radio Shack...
"Upon further analysis, even unbalancing will most likely NOT work, as tip and ring are connected together inside the microphone, thus shorting out the audio input no matter whether is configured balanced or unbalanced ..., "
I'll be at their US HQ sometime in the next few days - I'll check to see what progress they have made in developing a solution - or, in worst case, report if they have found that there is not one.
I must recant what I said... Apparently it doesn't work with the MKE400. I don't have one to test, but everyone mic I have works with a stereo to mono (with phantom power OFF, obviously.
