I understand what you're saying, I can't have my soundcard outs coming out of the outs on the Input pane and out of the Studio(control room) pane at the same time but you're saying there is a button that would allow this? I wouldn't know what I was doing but I just don't understand how I can't just have a second output come out of my monitors alike the default stereo out.
I do this as I often have a references that I want to hear without all the master bus processing I have on my actual mix, bypassing them is tedious.
Direct from the User Manual: wrote:Exclusive Assignment of Monitor Channels
Even though the port assignment to the Control Room channels is generally exclusive, it can be useful to create Monitor channels that share device ports with each other as well as inputs and outputs. This can be helpful if you use the same speakers as a stereo pair and also as the left and right channels of a surround speaker configuration, for example. Switching between monitors that share device ports is seamless, multi-channel audio is mixed down to stereo as needed. Only one monitor set can be active at a time.
If your scenario does not require you to assign ports to several Monitor channels, it is recommended to activate the “Exclusive Device Ports for Monitor Channels” option in the Preferences dialog (VST–Control Room page). This way you can make sure that you do not accidentally assign ports to inputs/outputs and Monitor channels at the same time.
- The state of the “Exclusive Device Ports for Monitor Channels” preference is saved together with the Control Room presets. Therefore, if you recall a preset, your current setting in the Preferences dialog might be overwritten.
