To anyone who can offer a suggestion, please do. What im trying to do is, Utilize the cleanest "what you hear" path to real-time record my vsti synths to an audio track, as im creating them. The reason for this logic is based on info ive read from a musician named BT, who suggests that midi has too much latency, and he prints all his real-time performances using his softsynths directly to audio. Well, this is possible using the sblive, but there is a problem that I have only one solution for, and I think there may be better. The problem is that, since all audio coming thru the card, i have routed into the asio 0 and 1 or 14\15 channels, my metronome clicks (using the sblive onboard synth) and all the other additional audio tracks get printed to the audio file im creating. What would be optimum, would be to be able to hear the metronome and all audio tracks in my project, but only be recording the selected soft synth onto the record-activated track. IS there a routing that can offer this? The only other solutions Ive got are to: 1. Use my external keyboard as a metronome triggered by midi (which doesnt seem sample-accurate) 2. Use the motherboard audio codec on my Asus P4PE and its soft synth to generate the metronome click and route the completed audio tracks of my project thru the motherboard audio, thereby only using the live card for the soft synths. Any Ideas? Thanks!
