That would be a little silly when you can connect your microphone up to your PC, then open Premiere Pro, select a track to record to, open the Audio Mixer, turn on recording and hit play to start the recording.
Not if the OP has already recorded to mini DV as stated.
The OP is rather unclear in what he means:
> I have been recording my voiceover onto a mini DV then capturing it into adobe through the camera in the usual way onto Adobe premiere.
You have recorded it, so why record it again:
> I noe want to record my voiceover straight into the computer.
Capture it and you are done, unless you want to do it again in the way Steven mentioned.
thanks for quick reply. Us English girls are a bit slow!! I understand about capturing from tape. But I am sitting in my study and when I do this the sound is horrible. It sounds like a recorded it in the toilet (restroom). So now I want to plug in microphone to my computer and record that way. So far when I go to audio mixer I can press record and the mixer doesn't hear anything - ie the levels don't move - in fact nothing happens at all. Also the play button is not highlighted, so I can't record. What is wrong?
You are a very nice man Eddie. Went through the instructions and found i hadn't selected "meter inputs only" in audio mixer. Gosh, it is so hard teaching yourself. I couldn't even work my own VCR three months ago. By the way, is Wiki what you would advise for the best tutorials? It is just that the Adobe book may as well be in Chinese for all the help it gives. I just find it easier when someone explains with pictures etc, so I know what to do and what to expect.
Thanks from England
