Captured audio much lower than preview audio
on Mar 30, 2009 at 11:58:17 am

The audio I recorded using my lapel mic is substantially lower after capture. This is distinct from the directional mic I was using in exactly the same mini jack input. That mic captures fine. What I can't understand is why levels that looked and sounded good while I'm capturing turn out to be inaudible after capture. If I boost the level I get ok sound - with hiss, which I hope I clean up, but I just don't understand why this is happening at all. Any light on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like a bad or faulty mic cable.

do this and if it fixes it the above statement is true:

open up the audio mixer in final cut, pick the top audio track in your sequence
and pan it left, pick the lower track and pan it right.

did it boost the volume? it should if the levels are really higher when you monitor.

this can happen and be so bad that they silence each side out. I've had it happen
twice. It occured when the shooter used a mini headphone jack to xlr adapter.

Thanks so much - it's so appreciated. It worked and I used an xlr - mini cable so that explains it.
