I could really use any of your suggestions or help with a very specific issue I’m having.
I have a screaming video game VO script I need to get done (a lot of reactions, emoting) and I’m having issues with clipping…or at least the potential to clip. Here’s my setup:
-Full vocal booth
-Sennheiser 416 mic
-Mogami XLR cables
-CEntrance mic port pro
-Macbook OSX with Adobe Audition CC
Ok, so the CEntrance has the gain knob on it and I’ve turned it all the way down but my audio still is at/near clipping. I can adjust the volume in Audition but all that does is lower the whole project (think zooming out) as opposed to stopping the clipping (it looks ok when I record but once I’ve finished and go to edit, the audio reverts back to near peak levels). I’ve tried adjusting my sound from my MacBook but nothing is applicable because the CEntrance is handling it all (it’s all greyed out)…which brings me back to the beginning…sigh.
I can adjust things in post but it’s kinda pointless if it’s already clipped at that point. I’ve tried backing away from the mic more but that introduces reverb/more room tone that’s not usable.
Is there a way you know of to preset the gain/limiter in Audition so that I can record the screaming at a close® distance but not clip? Every supposed answer I find is all about adjusting gain in post and it’s so frustrating. I want to limit my input PRIOR to recording so there’s no chance of clipping!
Thanks for any help in advance!
