comment Audio from PA system to Camcorder
No, it's a small box that only records audio. You plug a mic into it directly and sync up the audio later on.

@Prabhu - See my edit. (It's hard to guess at cable quality from this Amazon link.)

In the end, the sound was quite excellent. I delivered good, clean tracks to the client. Thanks for the advice.

That's what I did, and near the end of the session she was much improved.

But yeah, I do the "what's the loudest thing you'll be singing" question, and set the trim based on that, then add a little for safety. When I add a little more, I always misunderestimate and go too low. Performers often get caught up in their energy and go louder than they thought they would; I'll try asking them to scream!
