Hi Ralph,

I had a similar problem when I first got my Z1. To correct the issue, I had to go into the menu and under AUDIO SET > XLR SET > INPUT1 TRIM, I changed the setting to +12dB. I then did the same for INPUT2 TRIM.

I don't know if the V1 is set up the same way (or if you've already tried this) but if it is, this may solve your problem.

Regards,
Mark

Yeah...I guess this is where Sony went wrong with the V1 design. Here is an excerpt from the manual:

"The INPUT TRIM function adjusts the input level from an external microphone. When using a highly sensitive microphone, set it to minus side. When using a less sensitive microphone or recording quiet sound, set it to the plus side"

Only... there is no plus side in the V1 menu!

Quite right, Piotr... and it's driving me bonkers. ;-)

Alas, Mark... it's not... 0db is as high as it goes.

Yep... this is on page 69 of the V1U manual, by the way.
