Channel 8 Intensity is very high

Hi guys,

When I record with the matrix voice, I see that channel 8’s intensity is VERY high WRT to any of the other channels. If I record with gain 1, I get a good waveform to about 40% of the range on the non-beamformed channels, but on channel 8, I get a wave that is oversaturated whenever I talk. It’s many times bigger. Are you just adding the intensities when you’re beamforming? How does this work? Is this behavior expected? Is there a way to get a beamformed signal that isn’t oversaturated?

Thanks!
