Well.

I guess iut might now be possible to set up the Kona as the descreet 5.1 output for a piece of software like the new version of soundtrack recently released.

Does anyone know:

1. Whether the Kona Driver will support this descreet outputting
2. Whether (based on wht they have seen at NAB) the surround would be worth setting up this way.

David,

SDI on Kona 2, 3, LH, and LHe is capable of (x) audio tracks, where x certainly exceeds the 6 required for 5.1 audio. So, in theory, the Kona drivers could most likely be written support to 5.1. It will be interesting to see... Question is, what hardware would you use to split out the audio in order to properly monitor all six channels?

What about this

To take the 8 digital channels out of the K-Box and then into a mixer, looped into six individually powered loudspeakers.

You'd have a hard time getting DOLBY to come down and approve this room, but it might be nice for smaller projects.

David,

As I wrote on the FCP Forum, I think the 5.1 addition to FCP will have two primary results: 1) it will sell lots of new speakers and 2) it will mean lots of unnecessary sound effects flying around people's videos.

Personally, I think I'll be keeping doing my 5.1 mixes at the facility I always use where they do 5.1 mixes 365 days a year. And, I'll be keeping my edit bay in the stereo domain for quite a while, after all, I only have two ears.

It would be great if AJA could add a SPDIF out on the next Kona 4...
Any votes for it ?
