Kieran,

I just had an opportunity to play +18 1KHz 0db tone out of my M100's analogue XLR outputs and into my 2800 Beta SP recorder.

Output was 0VU on the recorder with preset set to unity. So perfect audio level.

A quick set to +24 (USA) on the analogue out preset sent the recorder's needles hard up against the right end stops.

Back to +18 and all is well again at 0VU.

I have not been able to test AIFF out yet but will report back if I can.

Hopefully you have found your problem and fixed it.

Cheers
David Issko

Hi David,

Thanks for doing that, the information is useful.

Could you just let me know the specs of your Media 100 system - hardware and software?

Many thanks!

Hi Kieran,

I have Media 100 V 12.1.3 HDe on an 8 core 3GHz MacPro with 4Gb RAM.

Although I installed FC Studio 2, I do not run FCP at all on the computer. I installed it for ProRez 422, Compressor - yes compressor, which works just fine and DVDSP 4.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Cheers
David

Hi David,

[David Issko] "I have Media 100 V 12.1.3 HDe on an 8 core 3GHz MacPro with 4Gb RAM. "

Arrgh! I was hoping this could be an Intel/PPC thing. And since you are Down Under, I take it you are PAL too?

[David Issko] "Compressor - yes compressor, which works just fine "

Hey, I love Compressor! Much faster than BV, and I can't tell the difference between them now.

Seriously though, thanks for the info.

Yep, I live in the wonderful world of 50 field, 25 frame PAL. No drop frame thingy that I don't (want to) understand. Nice and simple is 25 frame PAL!!!

I agree with you about Compressor. It's very good. No complaints from me and more importantly, no client complaints at all!!

All the best.
David

Hey,

Check your audio window and see what the nominal reference audio is set to. Mine is at -14dBFS.

If you cannot see the info, click on the top right hand button of the audio window. It brings up this info as well as audio peak hold duration.

Maybe your reference level is set differently.

Hope this helps
David

Hi David,

The Nominal Reference selection in the audio window dictates where the little white line on the level meter goes and at what point the bar changes from green to yellow. It doesn't alter the output levels unfortunately.

Still, good call. Thanks!

Hey Kieran,

I kinda knew it was a monitoring 'thing' only but worth trying.
Let us know what the problem is once you sort it out.
Cheers
David

Kieran & David,

Just FYI I just checked out the same thing on my HDe (12.1.3 MacPro 2 core) and at +18dbu I am indeed 6 db down from +24, but still pegs the VUs on our 2800 when in detent.
