Have you ever run into a situation where you don’t have enough inputs to record a band or instrument?
For example, let’s say you want to mic up a drum kit. You have a total of 12 mics, but only 8 inputs on your interface.
Feels like you’re kinda stuck, doesn’t it? Instead of capturing the full glory of that drum kit, you’re gonna have to toss those 4 extra mics instead.
But let’s say you have a 2nd interface laying around. One that has at least a couple more inputs on it. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could connect these 2 interfaces together to work as one?
Well, you can! There’s a variety of ways to connect your 2 interfaces together. And today we’ll explore 2 of the most common and useful ways:
With ADAT you can physically connect your 2 interfaces together via optical ports. This is a great way to get your interfaces to share audio back and forth.
Or if your interfaces don’t have optical ports on them, instead you can use…
Did you know that your Mac can actually “connect” different interfaces together using only software?
By creating an Aggregate Device with your Mac’s audio MIDI Setup window, you can create a brand new combined interface for Logic to use 🙂
When it comes to connecting multiple interfaces, the details can get pretty confusing. So today’s video will walk you through each step of the process.
So enjoy all the inputs and outputs at your disposal today!
