In addition to selecting the Audio tab from the menu tabs across the top of the screen, you can also access the Audio menu by tapping the audio meters (shown below) on the record, monitor and playback home screens.
The audio meters the display the audio levels for all active audio channels. This allows you to monitor all channels visually
To monitor the audio, tap the headphone icon next to the channel you wish to monitor from the headphone output. Only one channel (stereo pair) may be monitored at any time using headphones connected to the 3.5 mm headphone jack on your NINJA V.
Selecting the Monitor icon does not mean that track is selected to be recorded. You need to select each channel using the record button. Tracks that are selected to be recorded have colored Audio Meters. See image above.
These icons allow you to select the channels of audio to record. Tap the record button for each channel that you want to record and it will turn red to indicate the fact that it is being recorded. You can record multiple channels of audio by tapping multiple REC buttons.
Allows you to select the orientation for audio meters on the NINJA V display. Tap to cycle through the options:
Horizontal: Displays the 2 channels you are actively monitoring.
Vertical: Displays 8 channels + 2 analog Channels.
Allows you to embed the analog audio channels into the digital signal, so that when you output the video signal over HDMI/SDI this audio is also output as part of the digital signal. The available options will depend on how many channels of audio are coming in. Tap to cycle through the options.
When using the AtomX SDI Expansion module, your NINJA V can record 12 embedded audio channels, instead of the usual 8 channels of audio when using HDMI.
If analog audio is recorded it will be placed as track 1-2 with embedded audio moving to 3-4. Note if analog channels are turned on but no audio is present, in many video players you will not hear silence as they often just play the first stereo pair. In an NLE you can easily access all the recorded tracks.
