So long and short of it is that Audacity is the wrong DAW for what you want to do. I would suggest you try Reaper (www.reaper.fm) which many of here use. Not only is it fully ASIO compatible, it also interfaces nicely with the X32. Add to that, Patrick has developed an X32Reaper interface (https://sites.google.com/site/patrickmaillot/x32). Thanks for this! I had looked at reaper, but at further glance it only had a trial free period, which is why I went with audacity. I'll try the trial version of reaper and see what I come up with. I know that, for the uses I mentioned in my original post, it would seem like I only need the most basic of tools, but my hope is to start simple, and possibly pick up a few tricks here and there, and someday actual be able to make something of decent quality. I will post once I've figured it out. Thanks again.
hi guys, new to the forum, as well as brand new to the X32 rack and recording in general. I got the x32 rack finally setup for use with my band, getting FOH and monitors setup through trial and error, but everything's working ok. I decided to get into recording to be able to record our practices and possibly shows, but have the ability to adjust each track at a later date. during shows/practices, the levels are never set perfect for a good 2 track recording with the front USB recorder, as the amps and drums are loud enough on their own, that the recorded mix is way off, hence wanting to adjust later. I downloaded Audacity, since it's free, and I don't really know what I'm doing, and everything I've researched leads me to believe that audacity can record multiple tracks at once, and the the X32, when using the back USB port, can send all tracks. I downloaded the xusb driver, and shows both in the x32 and in audacity, that it's there. but when I open audacity to set the recording device, it shows the x32, but only gives the option of 1 (mono) or 2 (stereo) channels to record, rather than 16. Is there a way to even do what I am looking for, or is there another piece of equipment or software that is needed for this? I'm a guitar player, and my only experience has been running old boards for my band for practices and real small shows, so it's safe to say that I'm novice, but willing to learn. Thanks guys.
