AUDIO PLEA! Moron can't find 'AGC off' on ML for 550d
« on: February 19, 2016, 03:22:33 PM »
Hello!

Surprise surprise this is coming from an ML newbie...

Having formatted my card to death I've finally succeeded in downloading ML to my Canon 550d. Yes, I have the right Canon Firmware and yes, I'm sure ML is up and running.

The main reason for getting ML was to turn of the dreaded AGC (I just bought a Rode VideoMicPRo).

Problem is, I can't see the 'AGC' option in the Audio tab!

My Audio section looks like this:

Analog Gain
Digital Gain
Input Source
Mic Power
Headphone Mon.
Headphone Vol
Speaker Volume
Beep, test tones
MLV Sound

Does anyone know where to find it? Please help!!!!!!

If you can change the input analog gain then the agc is disabled.
Not sure, I haven't a 550d anymore...

According to the Canon User Guide p134 sound recording is automatic by default - you can't turn off agc. If this becomes a problem, record sound with external device and use cam sound recording for sync.

When you look at the Features page https://builds.magiclantern.fm/#/features it says, that the ML Audio menu has agc toggle. So...?

I trust You're using the latest nightly.

The AGC toggle was removed from the menu, I can't remember why...
