I'm little confused about whether or not the LED meter on my DV promix 3 mixer is a peak or a VU meter. The manual says that the meter "was designed to emulate the peak reading attributes found on many DV cams." But the scale reads -20, -10,17,-5,-1,0,1,2,3. This is very different from the peak meter on my Panasonic DVX100a. I'm very new to audio and just bought this mixer. Can somebody tell me if 0dB on the mixer should equal 0db on the camera, or if 0 dB on the mixer equals -12 db on the DVX. I'm attempting to calibrate the two meters by use of an external tone generator (behringer CT100).
Hi- I dont know this mixer, but i just Googled for it and the write ups seem less than clear. They think that a "bright LED" is more important then explaining the basic bollistics of it.
However, and without knowing, Id suggest that at this price point its more likely to be a VU rather than a PPM.This is because a ppm meter alone costs more than the whole mixer.
