I’ve searched but can’t find the answer (keeps getting sidetracked by ‘red book standard’).
Anyway, I’m trying to record from input 6 of my RME Fireface 400 (I’m in latest Wavelab 10) but it’s not coming through on the main recording bus even though levels are good.
When I go to preferences, Audio Input 6 is shown in Red - why?
If I make a new recording bus with just Input 6 active, it records - but is still in Red.
WTH is going on?

It should mean this port is used elsewhere in your config. Maybe external FX?
Thanks for you response. But no - I don’t have any external FX routed in. I have a mic going into input 2 (muted), an synth going into input 5 (muted) and this synth I’m trying to record into input 6.
In Wavelab I don’t have anything in the External Effects tab. Actually all of my inputs show in Red for some reason (new afaict) but it’s just that input 6 won’t record in main buffer.
Am I being thick? I can’t figure this out.

It is maybe used in your Bus
#2 or Bus #3
Note that this is not an error. Just a warning.
Well - by process of elimination I’ve figured out that wavelab - at least on my system using an RME FF 400 can’t accept 6 inputs on a recording bus. When I eliminate one (set it to unused) I can then record. So I’ve made Main recording bus inputs 1-4 and Bus 2 5-6. Good thing I don’t record drum kits.
Not sure why/what’s going on. But many thanks for your help.
