Thx a lot again

I would never use the internal mic nor auto level control. Limiters yes, but level control on manual. Peaks should be hitting about -10 on the camera meters. How much freedom do you have in your micing decisions? Are you working with the band or the concert venue so you can coordinate a mic arrangment with them or are you on your own?
Good news, Cousins! This week's chocolate ration is 15 grams!
