I recently purchased the CI1 interface. Installation was no problem. It’s working fine.
But there are a few preferences I am unable to set up properly.
I have an mid 2011 iMac, 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5. 12 GB memory.
I am using Sequel 3 as my recording software.
Prior to the CI1, I had the headphones out of my computer going into my speaker system. This was great. Worked fine. I could hear everything from my Mac on my speakers. My iTunes, my Netflix, Sequel, everything was coming out of my headphone out into my speakers.
But now that I have the CI1 installed, I am choosing it of course as the input for guitars and whatever, but now, I can’t hear anything from Sequel from my speakers. Everything else like my iTunes/Netflix/ etc… is still coming out of my speakers. Just not Sequel.
I’ve tried to find a setting so that I don’t have to use the Outs from the CI1 to hear Sequel. But I can’t find the settings to route the audio from Sequel to the headphone out on my computer. It makes me choose the CI1’s outputs. I really prefer not to have to purchase another set of monitors to plug into the CI1 just to hear audio from Sequel.
I have found a way to route ALL audio (iTunes/browser/Netflix) to the Output from the CI1. I suppose I can just hook my speakers to the CI1 to handle all of the audio out from the computer. I’d really rather not though.
In short, when using the CI1, do I HAVE to use the output on the CI1 to be able to hear audio from Sequel?
Or do any of you know how to configure the iMac to have the Sequel audio routed to the computer’s output and not the output on the CI1?
