Firestudio Project has 10 hardware 1/4" outs:
General Purpose Outputs: 1/2 3/4 5/6 7/8
MAIN Outputs: L/R
Studio One's Firestudio Project Song [b]template does not show General Outs 1 and 2.[/b]
It shows MAIN Out, and General Outs 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8. I'm connecting to all ten hardware Outs, so I need to assign ALL TEN Outs.
My hardware is connected as follows:
MAIN L/R > powered recording monitors
General 1/2 > basic 2.1 stereo speaker set
General 3/4 > reference speakers
General 5/6 > headphone cue amp 1
General 7/8 > headphone cue amp 2
How to I setup to use both the MAIN Outs and General Outs 1-2?
The main out is your 1/2.
Just remember that 1/2 usually outputs the system sound.
If you double click the Main Out text in the properties window you have open there you can rename it to Out 1-2 to avoid confusion.
Thanks for your reply, axxessdenied, but when I look at the connections on the rear of the FSP unit (see image below) I still have questions. There's a pair of 1/4" jacks for Main Out L and R, and there's a completely separate pair of 1/4" jacks for General Outs 1 and 2. So I'm pretty sure each pair can output unique stereo content.
I'll go back into the Song Setup > Outputs tab and add Out 1-2 to the left column. I'll route it to hardware Out 1 and Out 2, same as the left-column Main Out is routed. Then both my studio monitors and my basic 2.1 speakers will play back the main mix. This is how it'll look:
Main Out > Out 1 Out 2 (studio monitors)
Out 1-2 > Out 1 Out 2 (basic 2.1 speakers)
Out 3-4 > Out 3 Out 4 (reference monitors)
Out 5-6 > Out 5 Out 6 (headphone cue amp 1)
Out 7-8 > Out 7 Out 8 (headphone cue amp 2)
I'm sure this'll turn out to be a painfully simple matter, but IGNORANCE IS HELL. I'm gettin' there.
I don't think it is possible to separate the main out from outputs 1-2. I could be wrong though. Skim though the manual.
You are correct. outs 1 and 2 are a mirror of the main, as are the HP outs on the front.

Thanks axxessdenied and Matt. I appreciate the clarification before I crawl around rerouting my speakers and amps. And thanks for the Headphone Out clarification, too.
Main Outs and General Outs 1-2 being the same should be no problem as I want my studio monitors (on Main Outs) and my day-to-day working speakers (on Outs 1-2) both to playback the same main mix.
Sorry to have doubted you, axxessdenied.
