I'm using virtual instruments on a PC. Problem is, when I play back an existing track and record along with it, Audacity "hears" everything the PC's playing—the existing track, and the music I'm now playing—and records both of those to the new track, because I can't play the new music on a separate audio channel. It's all internal, in the PC.
I do have a USB audio interface I use for acoustic recording, and have also used it to record external digital devices (synth sounds, digital pianos, etc.) that I liked more than those I could get on the PC. So I guess I need to figure out how to play the VST instruments in through USB, rather than on the PC's soundcard. How do people usually do that? Do you really need a 2nd PC so you can play it into the first one? I can't think of another way... Thanks!
In this case, though, they were posting last year... I'm pretty sure all the time zones had chances to roll around since then.kozikowski wrote: ↑Fri Mar 12, 2021 10:01 amIt's a forum, users helping each other, not a Help Desk.
