I’m running cubase 9, on mac, connected to UR22mkII usb 2 channel audio
I am mixing a project for a gallery sound installation, which will be played back on VLC media player onto quadrophonic set up - four outputs to four speakers with different tracks panned different places.
I have set up the quadro buss in the VST manager (using my 2 output set up above), and can see the box to mix the quadro.
when i export the audio mix, can anyone advise what settings i need? I have tried stereo, mono and no others are available, when i try these, i don’t get a four-way mix just a stereo or mono file.
- do i need a 4 output soundcard/audio output hardware connected in order to export the quaddro mix?
- or, if its possible, what settings do i use in the export panel using my set up above?
- In order to export a quadro mix do all the tracks have to be routed through the quadro bus? or can some remain stereo (and be placed centrally in the mix when exported quadro?
- what sort of file am i looking for after export - does it create a four way interleaved? or four separate mono tracks?
I’d be grateful for any wisdom on this. I’ve only worked with stereo mixes before.
