    I am having a huge problem mastering a program to the Sony DVW-M2000P deck from an Apple Mac with FCP.

    I have the system hooked up using an AJA box and it has a murray pro ppm monitoring the levels.

    I adjust everything so -18db on the decks matches +4db on the ppm, but when I edit to tape the level drops on the deck to -24db. Same thing every time no matter what I do.

    There is nothing at all to help me in the manual it seems, can anyone offer any advice?

    Any responses and ideas are greatly appreciated.

    hi lewis

    it will help us to help you.
    if you specify the Lineup level in FCP in dBFS and the country you live in.
    deck’s are tweeked differently in some region’s of the globe. next to that
    where are your PPM’s in the system before or behind the deck???
    aren’t you using embedded audio ????

    you say you use murraypro

    as i watched there website your using BBC scale PPM’s ??
    as far as i know (not sure did not use BBC PPM’s that much)
    4 on BBCscale = 0dBu = -20dBFS

    please give us more info
