      The transition from FCP7 to Premier CS5.5 continues with great satisfaction with most of the program, but voice over is not so satisfying.

      After finding out from AJA that Kona 3 does not support VO in Premier I purchased an XLR To USB adapter figuring I could open a new project and set it up for VO or setup Audition for VO using the USB input.  I made a recording in Audition which played back just fine in Audition.  Saved it and imported the file to Premier.  Opened file in viewer and the waveform looked good, but no audio.  Also when I tried to place the file on the timeline an icon I hadn't seen before appeared and the file would not stick.  Sequence incidentally is an AJA KONA 1080 29.97i setup.


      On my laptop I tried doing a similar recording in Audition, but placing it in a premier XDCAM EX HQ timeline and it worked as you might expect.  Fine.


      As another test on my laptop I opened FCP7, recorded a VO imported it into my main edit system, placed it on the Kona timeline and it worked fine.


      I've been editing HD on a MAC since 2000 and I think I have a "clue" but clearly I'm either missing something really stupid obvious or this is something that needs to be addressed in CS 6.


      Any ideas on how to solve this issue?  Overall I love the program with some reservations, but I suppose that's what life is all about.
