Hi all,

I want to use Pipeline within SOV5 so that I can utilise some outboard gear. I have a UAD Arrow(Solo) which only has a L&R output, but I also have an IKMultimedia AXE I/O which has a further 4 outputs.

When I try to use both Audio Interfaces, it doesn’t work.

Currently, I select the UAD for my main interface and then within Pipeline, I select the correct inputs and outputs from the AXE that are plugged into my outboard gear, but alas, no luck.

Is it not possible to use both?

Any help greatly appreciated,

Hey Greg,

Yes. Go to Audio MIDI Setup and create an Aggregate Device, bringing the two interfaces into one Audio Device. Then, select that Aggregate Device as your Recording Device in S1 Preferences.

Good luck !

Thank you very much Jack.

That’s brilliant. I’m so pleased, although it does now mean I’m slightly overcome with the new desire to buy lots more outbound gear, lol!
