What does the sensitivity setting on the MKE 440 do?
The sensitivity setting helps adjust for different noise environments and different camera sensitivity settings.
For extremely loud circumstances or if connecting to a camera with extremely high input sensitivity the sensitivity setting would need to be set to the -20dB position (ie: left position) . For normal sound circumstances and if connecting to a camera with normal input levels the sensitivity level would need to be set to the 0dB position (ie: center position). For extremely quiet sound circumstances or if connecting to a camera with low input sensitivity the sensitivity switch would need to be set to the +20dB position (ie: right position).
