Kona LS Edit to Tape audio is way too low
on Sep 28, 2006 at 8:44:20 pm

I've got a Kona LS card with audio outs going to my Behringer UB1204-Pro and from that to my PVW-2800. I'm trying to do an edit to tape function but the audio is super low on the BetaSP tape after I've laid it to tape. What am I doing wrong here? The needles don't jump on the deck either as it's being edited to tape.

Hi Winston -
this is a common problem, unique to the horrible audio meters on the UVW-1800 Beta VTR. Simply put up AUDIO TONE from your FCP system, and output that to your Beta VTR (with no tape in the machine). See the tone on your meters on the Beta machine ? Set them to ZERO (or use your mixer to make the meters read ZERO). Now output your project. Tone looks correct, but the program material looks LOW. This is normal for the horrible averaging audio meters used by Sony in the 1800. Just make sure that tone is at ZERO, and you will be OK.

Many many thanks to you!!! I've now got the system set up properly.
