  • Using Blackmagic Mini Monitor for picture and Avid Fast Track Duo for sound….Possible?

    Hi,

    I am trying to set up a simple grading system. I have an HP Dreamcolor Z24x monitor being fed an HDMI signal from the Blackmagic Mini Monitor out of Avid Media Composer 7 on my macbook pro. I used to monitor my audio from an Avid Fast Track duo sound card over Rokit 5 speakers. Now that I have the blackmagic hardware hooked up, Avid doesn’t seem to be able to feed audio to the Avid Fast Track Duo sound card. When I click on the hardware tab of the Audio Project settings in Avid, the blackmagic card is all that shows up. Does this man I have to monitor my sound from the blackmagic card now? If so, I don’t know how to do this. Any suggestions?

    In a word, yes. Avid defaults to sending the audio out to your external monitor. I work round this problem by connecting an audio disembedder to the SDI output on the mini.Then, route the disembedder to your speakers.

    Thanks, Bill! Somehow this message got lost in my mail until now. Can you recommend a low cost audio disembedder by any chance? Which one do you use?

    Hey Scott…
    Yeah, I’m using a Kanex Pro with good success. It’s nice because it powers off an available USB connection.
