Turn off BlackMagic Audio Out to Computer speakers?
on Feb 4, 2013 at 11:56:43 pm

Hi,

I just need to get my Symphony playing out to my computer speakers. Right now, whenever I go to hardware in the audio project, it says the blackmagic card. How do I fix this?

Avid always outputs via a third party card if one is installed. If you need it to output from your computer speakers you need to remove the Blackmagic card.

I wish they would change this.

Wait, really? It's 2013, I have Symphony 6 on my PC, and there's no way in the software to manage this!?

You got it. I'm super happy to use third party cards with Avid, but this is one area they definitely need to do some more work in. You can toggle the video monitor on and off with version 6 and 6.5 (maybe prior versions too, but I've haven't tried it) so you can use an external monitor or the full screen functionality, but you can't route the audio.

Hit up the Avid feature request forum - the more people that request it the more likely it might be that this is addressed.

in 6.5 you can disable the Hardware from within the app. But no, you cant use the BM box and monitor audio independently at the same time.

I think it's not as simple as adding a toggle switch to the interface. If you allow video monitoring via Blackmagic/AJA card but use the system audio, you will need some sort of mechanism to deal with sync issues that arise.

The toggle seems to work in FCP7.

To the OP, what I have done is remove the driver not the card.

Did update to 6.5, will reinstall the BMD driver and test.

Y'all be cool,
Robert
PS: I agree with the OP, this should be handled by now. I would bet many of us have multiple audio paths available to our Macs. I also am regularly reminding people what year it is. Usually medium to large corporations.

FCP 7 will let you do it, but your audio will be out of sync with the video output of the Decklink/AJA card on many configurations. If its truly in sync with yours, consider yourself very lucky.

Do you remember what was the exact file or files?

Blackmagic_Multibridge_Driver.kext
BlackmagicIO.kext
DeckLink_Driver.kext
DeckLinkFrameBufferDriver.kext

TIA!

I ran the uninstall from the Blackmagic download:-)
