Ableton/Reaktor Audio Routing Problem

Post by 5dn » Mon Mar 25, 2019 11:45 am

Dear Forumers,

I am trying to run Reaktor a certain way in Ableton to send data through an Expert Sleepers ES-3 to my analog modules.
I have got CV data to come from Reaktor through Ableton through my soundcard (Behringer UMC1820) to the ES-3 to my modules successfully.
However the current setup I am attempting is not working and I am stumped. So I am putting Reaktor onto a Midi channel and setting up 8 outputs (within Reaktor, the number my card can handle). But when trying to put Reaktor FX on 3 audio channels and have each receive from the Reaktor on the midi channel by setting Reaktor as the "audio from" on each audio channel I only get the option of mono receives rather than the desired stereo.

Any ideas what is wrong?

Thanks

turns out:

By default, these outputs are automatically stereo pairs, which means that Reaktor 2/ -Reaktor 6 will, in fact, be assigned to Outputs 1 + 2 from Reaktor, Reaktor 3/ -Reaktor 6 will be assigned to Outputs 3 + 4, and so on so forth.

I can see why this would be confusing, but this is automatically set so that no additional steps are added to set up outputs as stereo sources for audio tracks. Of course, if you want to get a mono signal to an audio track in Live, just set two outputs in Reaktor to receive the same signal, so that the audio coming in with that pair of outputs effectively receives a mono signal.
