Focusrite Control Software and Auria Matrix

Post by indratgj » Tue Dec 04, 2018 11:10 pm

I just purchased a Focusrite Scarlett 18i20. So far no sound from Auria. I had some pre-recorded tracks and assumed that 18i20, straight out of the box, would play them at least through the Monitor Output channels 1&2. So far, no sound. I’ve ordered the Apple USB-3 CCK, so that should take of power, if that’s the problem.

In addition, upon further research on the Focusrite site, I think I’ve figured out that I need to install the Focusrite Control Software on my PC, hook the interface up to that, and configure the outputs using Focusrite Control.

Where I’m confused is, how does the Focusrite Control configuration interact with the output matrix in Auria? I want the monitor mix to go from Auria to interface outputs 1&2 (I plan to monitor through Auria, not the zero-latency direct input monitoring). These are hooked up to powered monitors, to hear playbacks in the room.

Next, I want to send outputs to a PreSonus headphone amp, to better control headphone mixes. So these assignments are:

A L/R mix of pre-recorded tracks to interface outputs 3&4
Drums/click track (also pre-recorded) summed to mono to interface output 5
“More me” sends of two separate instruments, recording live, to interface outputs 7 & 8.

Do I need to set up every one of these outputs as a “DAW”-monitored output in Focusrite Control, and then control the output channel assignment from the Auria Ouput Matrix as I’ve always done in the past. Or is Auria able to do this without the Focusrite Configuration step?

Thanks for any input.

Travis,
You have to setup all of the outputs in the Focusrite software on your PC first and then save the settings to the 18i20. Once you do this, you can assign all your desired i/o in the Auria Input and Output Matrix to work properly. Focusrite is long overdue for an iOS based control app for its hardware.

Thanks Corey!

I'll began to get familiar with Focusrite Control last night and things are going well. Sounds like I just need to set up a few more outputs and I'll be good to go.
