Hi,
I've been away from PTP for a while and decided to upgrade to the 2019 (2) release. (Been climbing the steep hill that is Reaper.)

My soundcard ASIO driver has 4 input pairs and shows up in the Options> Preferences> Audio> Drivers as expected:
Input Ports 0,1 / 2,3 / 4,5 / 6,7
One output port: (0,1)ASIO 15/16

When I double-click an audio track and select PORT, it shows only ASIO(0/1)ASIO15/16 + ASIO15/16 as the choices

What I'm looking for is ASIO routing choices, or where to select the ASIO routing for that port, so I can choose the ASIO INPUT pair 3/4 as the recording input and 15/16 as the output.
TIA

I may have answered my own ??.
To switch track inputs, open Options> Prefs> Audio> Driver
Highlight the ASIO pair you want to record.
That pair is the input pair on the track you're recording.
To record from a different ASIO pair, go back to Driver settings and highlight the pair you want to record. Rinse and repeat as needed.

There is not an option to configure
ASIO 0/1 >> Track 1
ASIO 2/3 >> Track 2

You cannot record multiple tracks from different ASIO inputs simultaneously, correct?

After searching through the FAQs for Power Track, I did discover that you can Ctrl-click to select, say, 3 of the 4 ASIO inputs.
( see PTP FAQ #21 )

When you record, the signals from the 3 selected ASIO inputs record on 3 consecutive tracks.

For example,
+ Ctrl-click the ASIO pairs 0/1, 4/5, 6/7.
+ On the PT Track window, select Track 4 as the recording track.
- record some noise / MIDI -
+ Track 4, 5, and 6 now show the input recorded from ASIO 0/1, 4/5, 6/7

Multi-track recording!

Another trick; if you set the track type to Mono Audio instead of Stereo, you can get all 8 inputs on separate tracks, instead of in pairs.

I am using a 8 channel line 6 UX8. The input and output channel assignments are done in the ASIO driver setup not in the PT port settings. I access the driver software in PT by going to audio settings/audio preferences. Note this is not the windows audio input/output screens it is separate Driver setup.

Upgrading to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 is Easy!

Did you know... anyone who has owned a previous version of Band-in-a-Box® is entitle to upgrade pricing - you do not need to have your old version installed!

Maybe you used to own the Windows version, but you now have a Mac... that's not a problem either!
(or if you owned the Mac version, and now you have a Windows computer)

In both cases, you would purchase from the "Upgrade from 2018 or earlier or crossgrade" row here for a new Mac version, or here if you want the newest Windows version. Just need to upgrade your 2019 version? Use the "Upgrade from 2019/2020" row.

When you purchase your upgrade from either of these rows, you will receive a complete installation - just follow the steps of the setup, and your Band-in-a-Box® will be ready to use!

PG Music Inc. shopping cart accounts were not required to purchase from our website prior to October 29, 2014. With that in mind, you may have to create an account in order to upgrade - that's OK! You'll still be entitled to upgrade pricing.
