Limited Audio Playback with the Canon 550d

Issue #1218 wontfix
Former user created an issue

I've recently installed the latest version of Magic Lantern for my Canon 550d, and everything seems to be working fine except my audio playback on the camera itself.

I have a Rode Videomic Pro and the audio is incredibly quiet upon playback, and often presents a loud burst of noise for a second before either cutting out completely or dropping to an insanely quiet level. I've found one setting I can play audio on normally and it's when I set the Rode mic to +20 dB, but this is the only setting that works.

Surely it shouldn't be like this should it? Is this a common problem or is it just me it's happened to? Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    You may try to increase digital gain, but this will reduce quality. Or, record with high digital gain on one channel just for playback.
