reference level

Is it true that audio reference level is at -20 to -18 when recording onto DV-Cam? This may be why I think my captured audio is too low.

Me again!

Yes in the UK the recognised levels are -18db when mastering back to tape, but often sound recordists and cameramen will(and lets face it its usually them who are recording to DV cam) line up 1k tone at -20 just because there is a graticule on the meter at -20 and not -18. (On a digi beta mc an enhanced 4 db scale shows where -18 is)

So the 1k goes to -18 or -20 and the audio should be laid to peak at =8 db above this.


NB If is USA then im not sure
