I need to be pointed to the right direction, so I can learn to use control room, as it is needed for using the Immerse Ambisonics plug in.
So far, I have only used the Mixer Routing to output my music to Stereo 1 output. And have never used Control room. When I turn on Control Room, the monitoring gets LOUDER, because now I am listening to both my direct routing and the Control Room output. However, when I remove the direct output on each channel, now I get NO audio output. How do I route audio through the Control Room system? This is very confusing to me. Do I keep routing audio to Stereo 1, and then something else happens which allows Control Room to monitor one Stereo set of audio? Why am I hearing two feeds when I turn on Control Room? Doesn’t it take over? What am I doing wrong here?
On my Control Room, under “Audio connections”, I have the following set up:
Stereo 1 - which was what I use to monitor before. Disconnected, gets me zero audio, connected gets me double the loudness with Control Room on.
Phones - on Stereo 2 outputs.
Monitor 1 - on Stereo 1 outputs.
Metering channel - on Stereo 1 outputs.
In the Control Room tab on the right side of the Edit window, I have:
Channels: 2, left and right.
Downmix Presets: 2 Stereo and Mono.
Monitors: 1 “A” Monitor 1
Phones tab, turned on.
Main tab, turned on.
No inserts are being used.
If I stop routing to Stereo 1, I get NO sound. If I am routing to Stereo 1 at the mix console routing, and turn Control Room on, I get double the audio. LOL. I suspect this is not how this is supposed to work.
How do I set this up? I am going to read the manual, but I suspect I will not “get it.” As I am used to hardware consoles, real inputs and outputs, and no virtual stuff, other than my RedNet 2 and Dante, which I have set up 16 IO across my DAWs.
