I'm very new to Cakewalk & the DAW world, but I'm having a ton of fun learning... I hope I get the terminology and explanations correct as I describe my setup and what I'm experiencing below. I'm still a little unclear on some of the 'mechanics' of things.
Win 10 laptop (realtek audio) with the latest ASIO driver installed
Behringer X32 Rack
I'm using an X32 as the audio interface using ASIO drivers into my laptop via the X-USB interface. With the help of the formus, I have the inputs configured in CW to the ASIO channels (bizarre naming btw), and I can get signal from the mics and can record.
If I'm understanding the mecahnics of it correctly, CW is essentially taking what is coming IN from the X32 so the individual channel gains would be set FROM the X32 and not done in CW anywhere?
I'm also struggling with what the what the configuration of the channel outputs should be set to, and how to get the sound to playback. If I'm using the ASIO I/O, is there a way to playback through the laptop (soundcard)? Or does the playback get routed back through the X32 and I should be monitoring it there?
Thanks for any guidance/suggestions.
