Seperate Busses on SB Audigy ZS

Postby mburnett » Tue Jan 06, 2009 6:31 pm

Have been gigging with Forte for a long time now and like it a lot. I use two midi control keyboards and would now like to separate the outputs of each. I assigned each of them to a bus and the volume display on each bus seems to correspond OK. I have each bus assigned to an output pair for the Audigy ZS card but I can't seem to be able to get Bus 1 to go to Audigy Out 1/2 and Bus 2 to Out 3/4. I have the interface set to WDM in options. Anybody done this successfully?

I don't use creative lab's drivers in my audigy, but if you're into modular stuff like bidule and energyxt you could give kx drivers a try in your soundcard. Besides providing 48khz/24-bit asio, you can do that very easily with those.

The way you describe the situation, it looks like you've done things correctly as far as routing in forte is concerned. If you can actually see the level-displays reacting differently for each bus and according to what you expected to be there, it should work.

The only thing I can imagine is that there are options in the soundcard's setup (control-panel) to be tweaked (eg: maybe the two pairs are mixed together on the card's onboard hardware mixer, if there is one). I don't know this card, so I can't check.

Life would be much easier if I had the source code.
