That's why it's called mixing.

Anyone know if this is the case?

Having half a billion Live 8 folders in /Applications on a Mac is no fun.

Re: Using a Benchmark DAC1 USB as the sole audio interface?

OK, so here's what I know: I'm using Live 8.2.8. I'm on an iMac 12,2 (Mid 2011 / OS X 10.7.3 / Intel quad-core i5 2.7 GHz / 16 GB RAM / spinning platter HDD). I'm running a Benchmark DAC1 USB via USB 1.1. In Live's Audio prefs using the Core Audio driver I can simulate (with 80% CPU usage) a 64 samp...

Re: Using a Benchmark DAC1 USB as the sole audio interface?

The Virus TI range can transport 6 channels of audio over USB1.1 at latencies good enough for keybaord playing, shouldn't be an issue just based on the USB 1.1 spec. Very interesting. Cheers for that. Installing now. Will get back soon. From the reading I've been doing around the web, it seems a fe...

Re: Using a Benchmark DAC1 USB as the sole audio interface?

Thanks for the input folks. It looks like I may be able to do this with just the DAC then, at least until I can get the cash together for a Babyface or similar. (I'm still worried that I'll be using USB 1.1, when even USB 2 seems to have latency issues. Perhaps this isn't a problem as I'll only be u...

Re: Using a Benchmark DAC1 USB as the sole audio interface?

OK, that's good to know. I'll probably re-install Live tomorrow and have a play to see how I go latency-wise. Would I be correct in thinking that latency is where I'd see the benefit from adding a traditional sound card to this mix? Is there any other area whereby adding a sound card will improve my...

Using a Benchmark DAC1 USB as the sole audio interface?

I had a cheap and cheerful M-Audio FireWire Solo for about six years. I played around in Live a little but in the main I found myself simply using it as a way to connect powered monitors to whatever computer I was using for the sole purpose of audio playback. When it finally bit the dust last year, ...

Re: live 8 + m-audio firewire solo + krk sub - output config?

macbook --> firewire solo --> balanced outs 1 & 2 --> krk subwoofer --> yamaha monitors. So your krk is driving your yamaha monitors? Huh? yep. If that's the case then you just send 1/2 down your Master channel over to your subwoofer and I'm assuming it has left and right channel outputs to your mo...

hi all. i'm in the process of setting up ableton 8 with my firewire solo. (i'm using the coreaudio drivers - not the beta m-audio drivers.) so, this the flowchart: macbook --> firewire solo --> balanced outs 1 & 2 --> krk subwoofer --> yamaha monitors. therefore, when setting up ableton, should it l...
