I just upgraded my AudioBox USB to Studio 68 and purchased an HP4.  My primary use is for voice over work, and purchased this hardware to record multi-person reads on separate mono audio tracks.

DAW: Studio One 3 Professional

Studio 68 and HP4 set-up

  • Mics on #1 and #2 Studio 68 Mic/Inst/Line inputs
  • 1 headphone on Studio 68 phone output and 1 headphone HP4 #1 phone output
  • 2 balanced 1/4" cables from Studio 68 line outputs 3 & 4 to the HP4 Right and Left inputs

Activity: Two person read on separate mono tracks

Desired outcome: Ability for both readers to simultaneously listen to the playback on the headphone connected to the Studio 68 phone output and the headphone connected to the HP4 #1 phone output

Problem: I can't get the audio I/O set up correctly to do this.

Bonus: When recording, I'd also like each person to hear themself with 0 latency, or a mix of themself and the output. 

Thanks for your help!

The image linked below shows how to create separate headphone mixes for each reader. With this setup monitoring and playback will be routed individually i.e Reader 1 will only hear what they are recording & have recorded (Playback), same for reader two.

If you want either reader to hear the other, Power On and turn up the Cue Mix for Reader 1 and turn up the track fader for Reader 2.
