asked Jun 27, 2016 in Studio One 3 by yulee (150 points)
I have a 2012 Macbook pro with dual boot to Windows 10.  I have Studio One 3 installed on Mac OS X.

I also have a audiovox 1818vsl as my interface.  All drivers are current versions.  The mixer is a Yamaha M7CL-48es.

I have been asked to record a live church event with what I have.  I did some research and found that the easiest way is to use the ethersound 3rd port on the back of the mixer and connect to my computer and record with studio one 3.  But the church told me that there is a computer already connected to the 3rd port on the ethersound panel in the back.  The computer is used for video presentations during the service and the audio from the computer is sent to the mixer through a cat5 cable to the ethersound port in the back of the mixer.

How would I record live multitrack from the mixer's ethersound port to studio one 3 using the AuviTran Network ASIO Streamer?  Would I be able to connect both computers to that same port with a hub/switch?

I have 3 weeks before the service.  Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

V/R

Andy,

You will want to contact Yamaha for information on a supported hub or switch for use with your Yamaha mixer.  There may be a virtual soundcard that needs to be installed on your system as well.  Yamaha should be able to help you with that part of the setup.

Inside of Studio One, you will want to go into Studio One>Preferences>Audio Setup and configure your audio interface.  You can then manually configure the I/O setup for your inputs.  Here are instructions for manually configuring the I/O in Studio One.

Software I/O Channels

In most recording applications, audio Tracks directly use your hardware audio device’s channels. In Studio One, there is a layer of software I/O (input and output) channels between your hardware audio device channels and your Tracks. This setup affords many advantages over the traditional method.

For instance, let’s say you produce a Song in your studio, using a multi-channel interface, then take your Song file to your friend’s studio, where you use a different audio interface. Simply connect your friend’s hardware audio device channels to the correct software I/O channels. When you get back to your studio, the original I/O configuration for the Song is automatically loaded for you, as if you never left. You can do the same thing if you need to open the Song on your laptop using its built-in audio hardware.

This is possible because Studio One stores I/O configurations with your Song, per computer and per audio device driver, ensuring that your Song remains highly portable and is never “broken” by changing audio devices.

Audio I/O Setup Menu

Each Track in a Song receives a signal from an input source and routes to an output destination. The input sources and output destinations made available to each Track are determined by the software I/O channel configuration created in the Audio I/O Setup menu. To view this menu and set up a default I/O configuration for each Song, create a new Song by clicking on Create New Song in the Start Page and navigate to  Song/Song Setup/Audio I/O Setup.
