I am trying to move from analog video to DV, only thing is I'm an audio and midi junkie and want to be able to use the master out from my mixing board directly into the camera when recording a live music performance. In other words I need analog stereo audio inputs, with a level or way to meter the inputs if possible. Hate Auto level controls. Any ideas or recommendations are greatly appreciated. My second wish is for stability, size of camera not important. External monitoring of the picture while recording is desireable too.
Also a recommendation for a dual output video card with analog capture and fire wire support would be needed too. (Is two cards better to get all these inputs? I am running Win XP.
