I recently bought an Fostex FR2 LE and a RODE NTG2 in order to create a starter kit for sound recording in the field. I have performed numerous test recordings over the past few days but the the recorded result is always far too quiet when I import the audio into my DAW. When recording I have the recording level knob set to full and the mic trim at roughly half, with a good level around -3 to -5dB on the monitor yet the result is extremely quiet and barely tickles the monitor in my DAW. I am using phantom power on the NTG2, with the FR2 LE powered by a 7.2v 3000mah Tamiya battery. If anyone could help me with this problem I would be extremely grateful. It has been very stressful for me, having spent a good deal on the gear and with an important assignment on the way I'm beginning to feel anxious.
Thanks and kind regards, Ty
