Iconnectivity Iconnect Audio 4+ Help requested
Anybody with an IConnect Audio 4+ able to assist with this? I am trying to set the Iconnect hardware up with my iPad and Ableton Live on my Mac Pro using the Iconnectivity Iconfig app on the Mac. The basic stereo test set up works fine, and I can get audio from AUM into channels 1 and 2 in Ableton, no problem, using the default setup so I don't have a hardware problem, just a software problem, that being the software between my ears.
What I want to do is have each of 8 simultaneously available audio channels in AUM address the first 8 audio channels of Ableton via the USB port on the back of the IConnect. AUM recognises it has 8 Audio 4+ ports available, as mono outs or stereo pairs, and I can set up the output for each channel in AUM accordingly. Ableton too recognises the Audio4+ in the Preferences setup, also no problem.
And in Iconfig on the Mac, on the Audio Patchbay screen, I can use the matrix to route audio from each Channel of AUM to the analog out section going from Source: USB 1, Channels 1-8, to any of the analog Destination Outs bottom right, so I can hear the iPad (albeit a maximum of 4 simultaneous channels this way) via my monitors using the audio outputs on the back of the Connect, lovely.
What I can't figure out is how to route all 8 digital channels simultaneously from the iPad into Ableton via the Iconfig Matrix. I currently have all 8 outs allocated as sources to 'USB 1' top left of the grid, and assumed it would simply be a matter of hooking these up to the right hand side USB1 mixer destination, and then going from the top side USB1 mixer Source to ... somewhere?
That's about as far as I have got. A lot of the connections I thought ought to work on the grid itself (eg from the top side USB 1 Mixer Source to the rightmost Analog Destination section) just flash red and are unavailable. Maybe I have to do something on the Audio Mixer page as well? Or maybe select a different drop down on one of the options on the Audio Info page? I currently have it as shown below.
Could some kind person with a similar set up possibly provide a screen shot of their successful setup, so I can puzzle my way through what I am doing wrong. All physical connections, leads, and software etcetera appear to be working fine, this is clearly operator error, but, y'know? - help!
