These buttons turn on or off the four input signals connected to Big Knob. Any combination of the four inputs can be turned on at the same time, as indicated by the red LEDs above the buttons.

Read the manual: yes, you can have multiple sources activated, you don't have to switch.

Thx, will pass this along!

I have never used one, but it seems like it lets you switch between inputs, not mix them?

I should have mentioned: friend basically needs a desktop solution with one balanced stereo input (from AJA Io Xpress) and one line input (computer's sound card), plus a master/monitor level fader/knob.

Master/Control for the obvious reason. Need to be able to play a music track in iTunes while playing back a scene in MC.

Otherwise a TC Level Pilot or Denon AV500 would suffice.

I own two 01V's, but they are too big for him, and having worked with one, he found it too complicated to set up and use.

I've owned a Mackie, worked with some others, never had any issues with them. Sold mine to a friend after 4 years, and he's still using it 10 years later. But perhaps those were the original 14xx's.

I'll definitely check out the Soundcraft.

I would think there would be a market for something like TC's Level Pilot or the SPL boxes, but with a mixable input.

Some google searching reveals there is a current model shipping, the 01V96i, for somewhere in the 2,500 to 3,000 range.  Kinda pricey for the little guy.

O3D's and 01V's are still quite prevalent on Ebay in the 500 to 1,000 dollar range.  Saw an 01v on Craigslist for 450.

Good luck,

In my experience, the Mackie's also break down a lot.

I am a big fan of Yamaha mixers, with digital I/O and if you wanna get crazy, fader control to timeline via MIDI.  Kind of a pain to set up an use, but falls under the category of geeky cool.

Back in the day I loved the 03D, now the 01V.  The O3D's are long gone except on Ebay, I am not sure if that is also the case on the O1V, but both are great mixers that seem to last forever.  Both have motorized faders and multiple save presets that make setting up for an edit bay really easy for non-audio oriented folks.

You can set "scene" presets for monitoring, output, recording voice over, etc, and then it's just a press of a scene button to call up all the routing/fader positions/settings.

I have always liked the quality of Soundcraft.  I was never keen on the Mackies - they seemed to lack headroom.

Subject: [Avid-L2] Japanese subtitle import into SubCap effect

 
Looking for advice on making open-captioned (burned-in) Japanese subtitles in Media Composer with the subcap effect.  We need to make a 1920x1080 H.264 of a 90 minute program.  Captions, Inc. has previously given us Spanish and Portuguese STL files that we imported into the subcap effect successfully.  But they tell us STL does not support Asian languages. They've given us a .SON file we can use with DVDStudioPro to make a DVD, but Avid doesn't read .SON. I've seen a tutorial about manually typing in Japanese characters into the subcap effect (no way we can do that ourselves), but not about importing a Japanese .stl.
 
Anyone figured out how to do this?  Or suggest a way to use the .son file to create a movie file we can import into Avid with an alpha channel that would sync with our program?  Or another way to caption the H264?
 
Thanks in advance.
