Crash trying to use Blackmagic Decklink Card for Audio Output


    Aug 23 2012 | 10:50 am
    Hi,
    I am trying to use a "Blackmagic Decklink Studio 2" card with Max MSP. Everytime I choose the output device to "Blackmagic" and try "start" the dac~ Max crashes immediately. Any idea why or how to fix that?

      ok. I got this problem solved. Works now.
      Now I am moving on to the next problem:
      When I use the same Blackmagic card for Live-Videoinput (jit.qt.grab) there is no soundoutput as long as the grab-object is open.
      Any advice appreciated!

      Hi,
      I'm experiencing the same issue with mini monitor thunderbolt.
      So my question is : How did you solve that ?
      Best regards

      Sorry to say, but I don't really remember. I think I had to downgrade the firmware of the blackmagic card or something like that.
      For the second problem:
      for Live-Videoinput (jit.qt.grab) there is no soundoutput as long as the grab-object is open.
      I know now, that it is not possible for the card to input and output at the same time. Only one direction at a time... that is how the card is constructed.
      Anyway, I am using a firewire Soundinterface by now, so if I use the blackmagic card these days, then only for video...
      I guess, that doesn't help you much, does it?
