Huh? Doesn't that stop the capture?

yes, just changing the audio setting results in quirky behavior on the video
side. I found the audio levels too *low* for monitoring. I was using VG for
archiving 8mm videos.  I went back to final cut.

Save the audio settings? -  how does one do that ?
 It appears impossible because there's no commands documented for that.  If
one tries to save on top of the video settings... they get trounced.
