View Full Version : audio io compatablitlity

I just downloaded Mobius, and so far it looks great. lots of room to pretty much make it do what you want to.
I had the Have the RC 50. its great, but limited. My concept is live loops, and it is limited to inputs and outputs. it has two line level ins, a 1/8th aux in and an xlr input. It only has a stereo output.
my concept needs 10 xlr ins and 3 line ins. and the exact same out to be fed to live PA so they can be monitored individually.
i was thinking i could get a two degidesign 96 io's and i could word clock them together. anyways, this would give me 16 total inputs.
would Mobius support the 96io? if not, what could I put in place? i need 14 inputs and 14 outputs. is this even possible?
any help would be awesome.

looking a little further into it, it looks unlikely that i will be able to have 14 outputs. but is it possible to assign each of the 8 loop tracks on individual output? so the output of each group can be monitored?
again, any help would be awesome.

hiya - yes it is - i use reaper and have each output assigned to a different channel. With Reaper you use the plug in menu and there is an option to do this automatically (it also creates 8 stereo output channels for you), but I think the way you do it 'manually' is to go into one of the mobius menus (track presets I believe) and assign each track to a different output port. (You can also assign different input ports as well, and select whether they are stereo or mono feeds).
Then you go into your DAW and build 8 output channels, change the input for each one to receive a particular port and hopefully you're away!

do you own a 96 io? i was thinking this would be a rad option because protools 11 will no longer be supporting them, so it looks like people with be dumping them off at a good price. looking into the manual, it looks as if they are protools specific. i just want to grab all the details before i drop a bunch of money.
appreciate the help man, and the quick response.
All Mobius requires is an audio device with an ASIO driver. It looks like
you can get these for the Digidesign boxes but I would do some checking
around to make sure:
The problem though will be word-clocking two of them. The way ASIO
works, there can only be one device open at a time. So If the two
boxes present themselves to the OS as two different things you won't
be able to select both of them for use in Mobius. Maybe the drivers
can recognize that they're connected and present a single device
with double the channels but I doubt it. That's definitely something
you need to check before laying down the cash.

Thanks alot jeff!
I was redirected by a friend of mine, suggesting to sum my outputs to 8. which makes sense. therefor i would only need one i/o with 8 ins and outs. i was looking at the RME fireface 800. the pres in it got good review and it is an all around rock solid unit by the looks of it. it is also ASIO compatible. you think with rig could work out?
thanks again jeff. you're the boss man.
RME makes very fine audio interfaces. I think Per uses one.
