Just upgraded to Ableton Ver 10, and am recording my music via Presonus StudioLive AR 8. Everything looks ok, except when I hook up my instrument to Channel 7/8 input, Ableton seems to record not only that instrument through ST7/8, but all other instruments. For example, I have two guitars, a electronic drum set and a keyboard hooked up to the AR. When the band plays a song, Channel 7/8 picks up all the instruments. All the other inputs seem to work ok (so Channel 1 picks up only the drums, Channel 2 only the guitar etc). I've tried both pressing and depressing the USB/SD button and it did not make a change. Has anyone had this issue before?
Hi SwitchBack, thanks for responding. I am new to this so it did not register the first time I read the manual, but now it is clear to me after I saw your message. So in essence, if I have one guitar, one microphone, one electric drum set and one electronic keyboard, I would be using Chs 1, 2, 3/4 and 5/6, and an additional instrument could be plugged into ST7/8 with no issues. However, if I decide to use the USB connection to connect it to Ableton, then the ST7/8 becomes the main output and Ableton would pick up all the instruments in ST7/8 because of this reason, right?
PS: Never mind what I wrote above, even the AR's description says "Mixer with 2 Mono Channels, 2 Stereo Channels" so that pretty much tells me that ST7/8 is not intended to be input channels like the other ones.
Thanks for reading.
