Ki Pro as a sound recorder?
on Jun 13, 2014 at 10:13:26 am

Hi everybody.
A year ago or more, I found online a tip on how to trick the AJA Ki Pro Mini to record sound only from a microphone connected to the XLR inputs WITHOUT a camera connected to it.
I have used the Ki as a sound recorder and worked fine!
Does someone knows how? I have spent hours to find again that post with the trick but had no luck :-(
Thanks,
John Mallidis

you used to need video of some kind to go with the audio, however I would suspect that absent video you would just get a blue screen. On the PIX240, which is similar to the KiPro, if you remove a video signal while recording, you get a blue screen on playback but the recording continues without incident. Worth a try PRIOR to your shoot of course.

Hi Mike, thanks for your answer.
The AJA Ki Pro Mini does not record unless it recognizes signal coming from SDI or HDMI input. There is a way to trick it - to fool the system and start recording only audio coming from XLR inputs. It is doable with a set of adjustments. I have tried for hours but can not remember the right combination! Urghhhh....
I should have kept a note when I had found that post!
Thanks,
John

Try turning on the Video SG (item number 41.2 on the config menu) I believe that will allow you to record without a camera attached. I can't be sure as I do not have one here with me, but I think that should work for you.

The trick with VIDEO SG worked fine!

Thanks to all,
