Here’s a fun one (apparently today is my day to break stuff). Certain combinations of input are producing strange results. I am totally baffled. In both scenarios, Ableton is sending an instrument out of outputs 3/4 on my interface.
SCENARIO #1: AUDIO STRAIGHT FROM DAW
Records just fine in stereo, as expected.
SCENARIO #2: INVOLVING THE MODULAR
Into Intellijel Stereo In
Then into Arbhar (in mono [only option], but will sum to stereo on output), which is set to full dry signal
Then into Strymon AA.1 in stereo (which is just an amplifier/attenuator)
Then into norns
(never mind the rest of the chain, because I’m monitoring from norns, and that’s where things get wonky)
And now, the interesting part
I can hear the piano through both cans of my headphones (while plugged into norns) when MON is turned up, but norns will not record anything in certain scripts. In both MLR and Cheat Codes, nothin’ (or barely nothin’, like very very soft). In Otis? Works just fine.
Also of note, playing back something from Arbhar’s buffers in stereo? Records just fine. So there’s something going on with the dry signal.
Now for even more fun and intrigue
Unplug the RIGHT input on norns and record something in MLR? Works perfectly. MON now only outputs to my left ear, as expected.
Is that I’m doing something super obtuse.
Can attach a photo if that’s helpful.
