Audio Equipment and Home Theater Audio : Volume Control - Component

Volume Control - Component

I'm looking for a device that I can use to control the different audio levels when I burn DVDs for friends. I know it's old school (non-computer), but it's easier for me. I sometimes use multiple sources with different volume levels. In the past, I would run the dvd audio through my old tape deck, which had a volume level (w/meters) and adjust it through that.

There's got to be an easier, cheaper way.


Re: Volume Control - Component

to my knowledge, there's no real easy way to do this. You need a program that has an Automatic Level Control or ALC.

You can run the audio through a small DJ mixer, which might be a little easier to work with.

I use a Teac A6300 reel to reel for volume balancing if it's needed.

What I would like is simply a device that I can run my audio component cables through that would allow me to adjust volume levels. It would also need a meter of some kind, LED or an old-school needle. That's it. I don't need equalization, although that would be a plus too. I'm not looking for a computer program.

Then the small DJ mixer is exactly what you are looking for. You feed the audio from the DVD through the mixer, then back to the comp.

Something like this.

Sweet. I think that would do it! Thanks.
