I’m fairly new to Audacity and Mac. I created an aggregate device with 2 Logitech headsets (and hope to add more later on) but am having trouble separating the two headsets into different tracks on Audacity. I want ultimately want to record several headsets simultaneously, but on different tracks. I’m not sure if this is something that requires a closer look at my setup in AudioMidi or Audacity. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
Aggregate devices will supply every channel separately. The only gotcha is that it doesn’t work with some interfaces (Tascam, for instance). But most brands aggregate perfectly.
In principle, every audio interface that works with OSX should work with Audacity. If needed I could supply a long list, but it’s as simple as that.
There might be some funky Skype/gaming headphone mics out there that don’t follow this rule, but it’s been many years since I saw one of those. Maybe the op has one of those rare exceptions if both mics show up as one channel?
In general it’s not a good idea to try and aggregate more than 2 or 3 interfaces. It works, but the more interfaces you aggregate, the more sync problems you’ll have. You’re better of using one 8-channel interface than trying to use four aggregated 2-channel interfaces.
