I'm trying to figure out if I can send different audio tracks to different sound cards.
Basically, what I wish to accomplish is to have a click-track for drums play through 1 sound card, while all other tracks are played through a second sound card.
Is this possible?
And if so, how?
I'll be using a laptop (HP, so no Mac) with the on-board sound card and an additional USB sound card. Both of these only have stereo (2-channel) output.
As matthewgorman says in his answer that a multi-channel sound card (like the SoundBlaster X-Fi Xtreme 7.1 I have in my desktop) would make this possible, I believe I'll have to look for another solution. Like finding a USB soundcard with 5.1 (6-channel) output.
(sidenote: I only use the free licensed version of Studio One 3, so if that's a limitation of this version I'll have to find another solution)
