My apologies for this seemingly very basic question.
I have multiple hardware outputs on my audio interface. I have defined two stereo buses, ‘Stereo Out 1’ and ‘Stereo Out 2’ as the first and 2nd pair of outputs sequentially on the interface.
Now I want my master mix to be routed, per my choice, to either
a) Stereo Out 1
b) Stereo Out 2
c) both Stereo Out 1 and Stereo Out 2
and to be easily switchable between a/b/c with a single operation.
I have been unable to figure this out, despite Forum searches and consultation of the manual.
Related (but separate), I don’t even understand how my virtual instrument sounds are arriving into the main mix in the first place, since I took no action to send them there.
Can someone kindly guide me on this subject in the simplest of terms, while not saying “Just do X” where is X non-obvious or in fact actually hidden in the first place!
P.S. I wanted to upload a picture of my mix console, but I can’t find a way to do that either! How do we add pics to our forum posts?
