    Frustrating Low Audio Levels in PP CS5

    Toomany3 Level 1

      Any light you can shed on this would be awesome!

       

      Simple problem: My audio levels are dead on in camera--Just at the sweet point before clipping. We are using lav mics on Sony EX1rs. Everything on the camera/mic side is set perfect with the confirmation at each level (transmitter, receiver, LCD display).

       

      BUT..... when I import anything into Premiere, the audio levels are outrageously low. I render out a project and you can hardly hear anything. I watch my audio monitor in Premiere and it's giving me similar readings to what I saw on the camera side--sweet spot readings, no clipping, but not too soft. But what's displayed isn't how it sounds. (And, yes, speakers are turned up and checked).

       

      I then crank up the sequences with some volume adjustments or audio gain and the clip is still very quiet, but clipping out like crazy.

       

      Any ideas?
