I'd like to be able to route audio from Capture into a Zoom video conferencing session, using my StudioLive as the audio interface.
When selecting the SL as the input device ("microphone") in Zoom, physical inputs do pass audio into Zoom (e.g. a mic plugged into any channel on the SL). The input signal seems to be tapped just after the preamp, as the audio shows up in Zoom regardless of fader level, bus assignment, or even whether or not FireWire is selected as the input on the channel.
With the SL selected as the output device ("speaker") in Zoom, audio from other users on the call, system sounds, etc., all seem to appear on channels 1 & 2 in the SL as long as the FW buttons are engaged on those channels. This works just fine, although it would be nice to be able to route that incoming audio to the 2 Track (FW) input.
More importantly, I'm hoping to send audio from Capture through the SL (using the FW input selection on each channel) with the ability to adjust dynamics, EQ, levels, and then into Zoom. Essentially, I'd like to be able to send the Main mix from the SL into Zoom, post-everything. Capture is working just as it should, and I'm able to select FW inputs, virtually soundcheck, and hear the results in the SL. However, only physical inputs (not FW inputs) show up in Zoom.
In case this is important: Zoom seems to install an audio device called ZoomAudioDevice with 2 ins and 2 outs. I believe this somehow enables you to pass audio from shared screens (e.g. a YouTube video) into Zoom when you tick the "Share computer sound" box. To be clear, I'm not just trying to route audio from one application to another. I'm trying to get out of the box to mix on the SL and send the "mix down" back into Zoom.
