As always, a convoluted path. What I want to do is turn on/off the LR assignment of an XR18 channel via a button or V-Pot on an X-Touch.
I have application audio on my Mac routed to a channel pair on the XR18 (3/4). Normally I have LR off, since the XR18 is my soundcard for my Mac. The goal is to send application audio to the XR18 and incorporate it with other inputs from the XR18.
If LR is on the application audio plays through my main speakers which are the LR output from the XR18. Some times I want to have 3/4 controlled by my DAW - reference audio which I can mute/un-mute as needed.
Yes, I can open up X-Air Edit and change the setting, but all of the other things I want to do are all controllable on the X-Touch.
Is there any hope for me? I may be able to contrive something that I find accetable...
At the moment I think I have it working with 3/4 sending PostEQ. If I mute 3/4 I get the audio on USB sends. If I un-mute I can hear the audio coming through the Mac mains.
Key part here is Audio Hijack/Loopback - Audio Hijack grabs application audio, routes to Loopback audio output (sends to 3/4).
When all is said and done I have iTunes on one pair of faders, QuickTime Player on another, and Safari on a third. Fader control of audio producing applications on my Mac which I can merge and blend with streaming content things...
Or have I simply complicated things
