How would one connect a Mic input INTO the Kona 3 when the only audio ins it has are AES/EBU? Are we gonna have to go the Griffin iMic route or Snowball and connect via USB? Just curious what others are doing. With the Kona LH, this is a no brainer. And we need the Mic for temp VO.
The Flying Cow is unfortunately discontinued, but the AJA box will work for you as Walter mentioned as long as you run it through a mixer. You can't attach a mic level input to a Kona card.
Also, if it's just for scratch tracks and stuff and you don't have a mic right now, the Snowball is totally effing cool. I love that thing and it sounds great, almost too good. You have to get far enough away from the hum of the room though. That's really the only disadvantage. If you could isolate it, you'd be golden. Plug and play. It works great with Soundtrack Pro, never really tried it with FCPs VO tool, but I imagine it'd work. I usually do that kind of stuff in STPro anyway.
Situation has been resolved. I will be getting the PREVIOUS version of the MacPro that shipped with Tiger. I will not be getting a machine in a Leotard...thank goodness. Shipping will be delayed...so I still get to look at the pile of goodies that I get to install INSIDE the machine, with no machine.
And I am almost done building my editing desk. Looking sweet.
