AES to analog conversion for Kona 3
on Sep 10, 2009 at 7:15:07 pm

I just purchased a Kona 3 card, but my mixer doesn't have AES inputs for monitoring. I could change the output in FCP to line out, but I have to do this everytime, or I would have to create easy setups for everything. Does anyone know of a good converter or other workaround that will do the trick? Many thanks.

I found this Miranda converter:

But it looks like it is around $650. Maybe I should look into getting a new mixer...

Lucky me...

I found we had 2 Flying Cow converters laying around that do this exact thing. 1 more device I have to deal with now as If I don't have enough equipment around me!

I guess that all my smart ass answers all come from seeing the same type of post over and over and over AND OVER again.

Uuuuuuggghhh Duke - the recommended breakout box from AJA (AJA K3 box) for the Kona 3 has analog outputs for $258 street price.

You get your Kboxes on the street?

Wow, what a fantasy land you must work in.

I saw that the K3 had analog outputs, but I assumed it was expensive. Of course AJA doesn't have prices on their site. But I googled it later and found it. I'll see if I have any sync issues with the Flying Cow before I invest in the K3.

If it makes you feel better, I googled AES to analog conversion and researched stuff for like 30 minutes before I even posted. But I don't mind smart ass responses so post away.

used a flying cow for a long time with no problems now they are no longer manufactured.
I'm now using a few Behringer SRC2496
also handy for analogue input from mics etc.
I lock it to AES from the Kona3 which is locked to black or tri level
they run about $199 most online stores
