Thread-topic: [CRTech] NexGen Record Capture

We are using NexGen here and if my memory serves me correctly, normalization does not take place while the DRR is doing the recording, (I have audio limiters in front of our DRR inputs).  

Normalization kicks in when closing a file after auditioning it. 

I believe our NexGen system normalizes files so peaks don’t go above -10dbfs.

Attached is the NexGen Manual showing how and where the audio configuration is controlled so someone can confirm settings are proper.

Nexgen’s normalization I believe is non-destructive and if the audio file is ingested then AFC is involved and it has it’s own config settings that need to be checked.  It all depends on the signal path the audio file takes once it is taken from the AMR-100.  I have not used NexGen in a few years.

We’re working with a station which uses NexGen to record capture one of our programs off the AMR-100.


However, one of several files consistently sounds over-modulated.  We know the files are all the same level as we have fetched the file(s) off their receiver and they’re all at our standard -6dBFS.


My question is this . . . do you know if NexGen allows you to set gain boost or trim based on each record capture event?  This seems the only logical explanation for the problem.  If we’re right and you’re familiar with the software, could you point us to where the setting lives?


Or, is there something we’re missing??
