Jim:

 

Since you say “we have fetched the files off of their receiver” I presume that they are program files, not live programming.

 

Using RCS’s AFC (audio file converter) to import the programs should allow normalizing, format conversion, renaming, etc. to the station’s standard. This would seem to be a better process than playing and recording.

 

Of course, this would require the Amb-OS receiver and NexGen to be on the same LAN and some stations still have their automation isolated from the rest of the world. We have put dual NICs in a few NexGen machines to allow them to see the outside world for this purpose.

 

The NexGen systems I have worked with had an audio standard of either -12 or -18 dBFS.

 

Just a few thoughts,

Could it not just be the input gain of the audio card recording into DRR? I would think if that weren't set to 0,  it wouldn't match whatever the file on the AmbOs receiver. 


Best,

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??
