Boz (03.09.09, 11:14 AM): Sounds like this is going to stream line a lot for you. Basically the cameras audio was boosting your pre amp to distortion, is that right? I guess that makes sense, glad you had the patience and brains to figure that out, I think I would have had to put it away and be frustrated for a few days...and enjoy the Maui weather...till I possibly found the solution! Thanks for choosing such a great location to shoot this video!
