Is it possible to use Loopback to record your system’s output and NOT have the output tied to Microphone 1 & 2? The end goal is to enable live streaming of audio production, similar to Jacob Collier’s live videos - he’s able to use the microphone both to talk and to record vocals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEHoeaA-NjU&t=1033s
I use a UR242 and the way Loopback works for this device is that your Mic Inputs 1&2 are always tied to the Loopback output.
In the attached image you can see two instrument tracks playing and an Audio Track (input = Mic 1) receiving the audio from those tracks due to Loopback being enabled. I’m looking to see if the UR44 can use Loopback to avoid this issue.
I know Loopback works differently with the UR44; my understanding from the manual is that instead of Mic Inputs 1&2 being mixed into the system output, it sets Mix 1 to be mixed into the system output (leaving you with Mix 2 to be different). However, I don’t know if this works as I think it does.
The main question - can I use a UR44 (/device with more advanced Loopback integration) to be able to record from a microphone, with loopback enabled, without the system audio (i.e. the backing you’re recording over) being mixed into that audio.
