Kona 3 AES input does not work
on Mar 19, 2013 at 5:47:26 pm

Hi. I have a Kona 3 and don't seem to be able to get AES audio into my system. (First time trying)

Here's the set-up. I have a Audio-Technica AT2020 condenser mic hooked up to a Mackie 1402 mixer (provides phantom power). I'm going out of the mixer into the Kona 3 breakout box (Ch 1/2 in).

I don't see any audio input levels in Soundtrack Pro or the System Preferences Sound panel. (In both, Audio Input is set to AJA Kona 3.)

If I go out of the mixer and into a speaker (instead of the BOB) then I get audio. So the speaker/mixer/output is working fine. It's just going into the BOB where I lose audio.

In the AJA Control Panel, I have the Audio Input set to AES/EBU (xlr).

Is there anything else I can try?

Thanks,
Naveen

OK, so the obvious answer (and most likely the problem) was that I am using an analog xlr cable to go into the Kona 3 BOB, which is of course AES/EBU digital.

So, the question is: can I just buy an AES/EBU xlr cable and will that work with my analog mixer? Or is there some kind of convertor I need?

you need a AES > analog converter like the ada4

Thanks!

But...can I use something like this?

It's so much cheaper it makes me think there must be some reason why I cannot...

No. That's not an analog to digital converter.

It just is an adapter between Two types of AES audio connections (BNC and XLR).
