The input side is the end one adjusts for to ensure good audio capture without distortion.

One it's digital you can play it as loud as you like.

0 dB is the absolute maximum value the Analog-to-Digital-Converter can encode. If "OVER" lights up and stays on more than mometarily you will record a constant maximum level signal with a flat top rather than the nice sinusoidal waveform of real sound. THAT could cause audible distortion at best and severe speaker/amp stress at worst.

Your task is to attempt to set a level that anticipates those loud sounds and leaves a bit of room for the outbursts. CD has so much dynamic range you shouldn't have to worry about losing the signal in the noise floor of the process. Whispering wind and crickets to roaring jet engines on the same recording is possible.

The difficulty in enjoying the entire dynamic range of such a recording is to find an environment that is quiet enough to hear the soft sounds and having speakers capable of reproducing the loudest sounds without adjusting the volume.

There IS another solution. Dynamic compression or peak limiting of the input.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_range_compression

Go on eBay and search for dbx dynamic range compressors. They're available in pro and home-versions.

Some models have both selectable compression and expansion.

I personally own a lot of dbx home audio gear and I recommend it.

How do I increase the overall loudness of a CD once it has been burned


What you need to do is find an option called "normalise" this makes the sound at the same level for all tracks on the CD. However I should point out that even some commercial discs are recorded at much greater levels then are needed. In otherwords they are loud!

We can't get the volume loud enough to hear when we record to a CD


This unit is a pro unit that makes use of XLR type inputs. These are typically at +4 dBm signal level not that of the -10 from RCA type mixing boards. So what you need to do is take the RCA outputs from your source and hook them to a IHF or unbalanced to Balanced converter and they are available from MCM Electronics. This device here should take care of the problem.

The best Rec. levels


As with all recording levels it's best to keep them to a max of 0 VU on the level meter. Some say an odd peak into the red or above 0 VU is acceptable, but it should not go to high. Sett it on the loudest part of what you are going to record, then the rest of the time should be OK. Try some loud music first if it's all speech. That should set the right level for the speech. It is possible to increase the audio level on Audacity afterwards anyway.

What is the difference between cable and digital recorder networks?


Cable networks deliver "live" video material, transmitted at playback speed for immediate viewing or real-time recording. Digital recorder networks transmit digitally encoded video files at best network speed, which may be faster or slower than the playback rate. These files are stored on the customer's digital recording apparatus for later playback.

It is possible for a cable service provider to deliver both services over the same physical infrastructure (cable) using a customer tuner/demultiplexer box to separate the signals.

Our church uses the Marantz Cd 633 Recorder. The problem we are having is that the playback volume of the CD is not high enough. You have to crank up the playback device all the way to hear recording at...


You have to isolate where problem is. Does a prerecorded disc play at normal volume levels? no? Check fade settings in menu. If yes, substitute another line level analog input from another device right at the recorders back panel. Test recording with that input and verify if recording level display can reach clipping level. If you have that and still have weak playback, again check for an in/out fade function being programmed. Also check volume selection in menu and try different settings, including 0.0. There is also a monitor mode to check input levels without using a test disc. Otherwise have unit checked by a repair business

Connect vcr to jvc c2033us tv


You will need to put your aerial into the rear uhf socket of the VCR then take another connecting lead (flylead) from the out of the VCR & put this into the aerial socket of the TV. You will now need to select a channel on the TV (best to use channel zero) & tune the TV to the VCR signal. The best way to do this is to put in a recorded tape eg a film /press play/ then tune the TV until you pick up the playback of the film, then store this on the TV. This will give you your VCR channel. You will now need to tune the VCR to your broadcasted stations so that you can record.
