using xha1 as external mic w/ FCP
on Jul 29, 2009 at 1:51:07 pm

Hey folks,
I've used a professional mic connected through my camcorder as a pre-amp before in order to record narration with the voice over tool in Final Cut Pro. Was trying to set my XHA1 up for this purpose today, and whenever I try to select "DV Audio" in the Voice Over Tool pulldown, I get the following message:

"The selected sound input device is unavailable. It may be in use by another application, disconnected, or improperly connected, or may be conflicting with a video output device."

I've been troubleshooting this for a while, and here's what I've tried:
1. The camcorder is in record mode, connected to a firewire port with no other firewire devices connected to my mac.
2. No other programs are running when I attempt this.
3. I've switched "External Video" to "Off" in the View menu as recommended in the FCP manual.

I feel like the problem must be in settings somewhere, either on my camera or in FCP. Any suggestions out there. I'd much appreciate some help.

Thanks, Chris
