I’ve done a search (because I thought I’d asked this before) but couldn’t find anything.
Is there any way I can have my Katana as the input source and my Focusrite as the output source?
The reason I ask is, I was recording something through the Katana using USB in to Reaper and then when I played it back I had no sound, so I had to go in to the Reaper settings and change it to Focusrite so that I could hear what I’d recorded. Just seems a bit of a faff if I need to do this each time. I did have a look but it could only be one source or the other.
At the risk of sounding completely thick, I thought the Focusrite was an interface to get data into the computer. Do you not just have speakers attached to your pc for playback?
This is from someone who often struggles to choose the right settings in Reaper options just to get the sound in (let alone out!)
Audio interfaces are normally both in and out, so you would connect your speakers to the AI and use that for playback as well as for capture.
That’s different when you are using a device like a Katana which has a built-in AI, although you can also play back out to the Katana. I believe it only works for playback with headphones though (I might be wrong on that).
I’ve no clue on many things in this topic so perhaps don’t pay attention to what I’m saying… But what would happen if you ran a cable from scarlet’s monitors out to the aux in of the Katana?
Perhaps break everything so don’t try it. It’s more of a theoretical question.
