Focusrite Solo Gen3 + 2box 5 +Reaper
« on: September 30, 2021, 01:12:05 PM »
Hello Folks.
I have recently purchased a scarlet solo sound card to eliminate the midi latency while recording from a windows machine. It solved my issue. But now, I want to experience how I can record my 2box sounds over foucusrite. I configured all the components of the set to out 1 and I connected out1 to focusrite input2 which the instrument input. But my problem is , when I output to card and connect my headphones to focustire, the sound quality I hear drastically goes down, I hear a hmm an hsss and a constant noise compared to what I hear directly from the 2box set. Do I make any mistake ? and the sound profile also changes. Im not satisfied of what I hear fro the focusrite sound card. Is there any recommendations on how to setup and what to tune.. ?

Thanks a lot

Just to get the obvious stuff out of the way: have you checked that your audio cable is ok? Another thing, have you tried setting the output mode to "line", i.e. that the output volume is not affected by the module's volume knob?

Read the manual.

Go to UNIT -> OUT and set OUT1-2 to "Mix!".

From the manual:
Quote
Mix The entire sum signal of the internal mixer (see also page 41) (all
instruments, metronome, line in and the song player).
Mix! Like "Mix", only with a fixed volume. The output volume no longer depends
on  the  LEVEL  control.  The  control  can  thus  be  used  exclusively  for  the 
headphone output.
