Monitoring DV Audio while Recording with
Mojo and Digi 002 Connected
When setup to capture DV audio from a DV device that is connected
to the Avid Mojo, the Avid Xpress Pro application does not automatically
play audio pass-through while you monitor the input. Avid recommends
the following steps be taken to listen to audio through the Digi
002 while recording through the Avid Mojo:
Note that these steps are only necessary when recording DV audio
from a DV device plugged into the Avid Mojo. Audio pass-through
works with any other audio source connected to the Digi 002.
- Plug the camera analog outputs to Alt Src inputs of the Digi 002.
- Click the ?Alt Src to Mon? button near the top of the Digi 002 to
direct that source to the monitor output of the Digi 002.
Digidesign Pro Tools tip: Using Color to
Organize Your Session
Using the color coding enhancements in Pro Tools 6.7 is a great
way to visualize song structure (i.e. Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc.)
within your session. To enable these color coding settings, choose
Setups > Preferences and click on the Display tab. By setting
the Default Region Color Coding to Marker Locations, all regions
that start on or after a Memory Location will be colored the same
default color (regardless of track) until the following marker.
When placing a memory location, be sure to select Marker in the
Time Properties section of the Memory Location window.
