Using multiple audio (interface) inputs?

Question

Hey guys,

I'm using Focusrite as my main interface. I also use a Yamaha THR Guitar Amp (usb line into computer). But Cakewalk refuses to recognize the TWO AUDIO inputs at the same time. The THR is indicated in the audio preferences, but unable to click it. I have to physically unplug the Focusrite (means i lose my monitors) in order to use my THR amp. (BTW, I have the option to use my THR amp as a... MIDI input??)


See attached pix (in French)

Any solutions?

Thank you all!

This is a limitation imposed by the ASIO specification NOT the DAW.

A host may use one ASIO driver at a time.

To change ASIO drivers in CbB both Audio input and output device options must be deselected before selecting a different driver.

Hey there scook!

Thanks! It works. Still sucks that input and output have to be same interface (monitoring from my guitar amp :( )... But much easier than plugging and unplugging!
Any way to bypass the ASIO specs? Pushing my luck here?

Thanks again!

Can't change how ASIO works but the other driver modes do not have the driver limitation.

If the amp has a line out that may be a better option.

The only way around this is to use something like ASIOLink : 

ASIOLink takes one ASIO device, plus a number of other WDM devices and presents it to your DAW as a single ASIO driver.

It does actually work very well, but it's a complete PITA to set up!

However...  unless you can find a way of sync'ing the word-clocks between your devices, you may run into timing problems.  From the device names, I'm guessing none of your interfaces have wordclock inputs/outputs.
