Record higher numbered mono input

I’m on Mac OS 10.6.8, Audacity 2.0.5. My audio interface is an RME Fireface UFX, whose microphone preamp inputs begin at number 9. I’ve got a microphone connected and would like to record a mono signal into Audacity from input 9 on the Fireface. I see that Audacity lets me record inputs 1 thru 9 simultaneously, but this seems unnecessary and kind of silly. I would like to record ONLY input channel 9. Is this possible?


Not yet.
It is not at all unreasonable that you should want to do that, but that requires that Audacity is able to “map” specific input channels (channel 9) to specific audio tracks (track 1). Audacity cannot do that yet, but we are aware that it would be a useful feature.

Many thanks for the clear and prompt response. Disappointing that this isn’t possible, but very good to hear that it is on the radar as a useful feature.

I added your “vote” (we track requests to gauge “demand” for features).
