I just hooked up my DeckLink Studio card and tried importing some Betacam footage. But the Audio is coming through way over-modulated.
I'm using Final Cut, but I'm also new to Final Cut, so my question is if there is a way to monitor the levels beforehand or during to make the necessary adjustments. Is the best place to adjust the input levels through the System Preferences-->Decklink-->Audio Levels?
I would imagine this could be done through Final Cut even, but don't know how? Should I be asking this question on the FCP forum?
buy an analog audio mixer. Behringer makes very good mixers, and you can get a small one to attenuate your analog audio levels from your Beta VTR before it hits your Blackmagic card. These mixers cost between $100 - $200 dollars, and you can use them for all kinds of things, like voiceovers for Microphones.
