I've just got a Kona 3, so this may be a bit of a newbie question..
I'm trying to get audio to and from a PAL digibeta. I can change the settings on the Kona control panel, which gives me a choice of AES/EBU (XLR) or embedded 1-8 or embedded 9-16. However, I can't seem to change the setting in FCP that allows me to switch to 'un-embedded' audio - the capture preset settings only allow for 48khz or 96kHz 24-bit 16-channel... so whenever I digitise, it's bringing 16 channels of audio in, of which 14 are useless.
Laying back to the digibeta is no problem, as I can control the SDI embedded outputs from FCP - although I'd like the option of using XLR here also, and can't seem to find it.
There should be little green dots with audio waveforms. Light green means the track in on, darker green means the track is off. You can also select stereo or dual mono here by linking or unlinking the little chain. Don't worry about the greyed out number.
