Hey - new to the forums. I’ve done some cursory searching and came up with nothing, so I apologize if this is documented. I’d appreciate being pointed towards where to find information like that.
Short version; does Audacity support an arbitrary number of outputs, provided the interface supports it? Or if not infinite, then at least 8 outputs?
So I’m building a system for a local band for their clicks and sequences. However, they separate out their tracks and output them to board for live mixing. They’ve been using like the super-advanced (and expensive) version of Cubase*, but it seems like massive overkill. I’m more familiar with Studio One, and I’m confident that would serve their purposes with cheaper licenses. However, I think it would be amazing to use Audacity instead - 1) though I am often forced to use proprietary software for various reasons, I have a soft spot for open source and 2) it would make migrating systems and future upgrades much simpler.
Also, side question - I can’t get my hands on the band’s current system for a few days, but I’m 90% sure their DMX integration is just midi. (I actually haven’t done lighting syncing myself before) Audacity should be able to do this as well right? That should just be MIDI output.
Thanks all in advance.
*(I’m told that back in the day it was the only DAW that easily integrated with DMX lighting, and the band has stuck with it because it is familiar, despite the licensing expense)
