Adjusting input volume (Vegas)
I am using a Radio Shack head microphone plugged into an HV20. Then using the capture to get my audio, including dubbing. The problem is that its too loud. I know that a can adjust the volume in the camera, but that's impractical the way the camera is mounted.
Is there some way to reduce the volume of the input within Vegas. I know that the volume can be lowered during editing, but because was was so high during capture, it sounds tinny once its captured.
I have tried the track volume, the master volume and also the add on volume. None seem to affect the input.
Is there a way to do it?
Vegas has a mixer tab. You can use that, or, you simply drag down the line on the audio clip which will reduce the volume only for that clip. Same as you do for video to change the transparency.
Better yet, lower the volume at the source. I believe RS makes an inline volume control that you should be able to plug your mic into and record at the proper level to start with.

Thanks Dennis. I ran out and bought one. The volume is reduced about 50 % at the loudest setting, so a small reduction is impossible. Radio shack had another model and exchanged the one I bought, but its the same.
Great suggestion though.
