We've made a couple changes in an upcoming patch for RealBand that should increase compatibility with some previously not working ASIO drivers, so this list should expand a bit once that patch is released. Don't ask me for a release date for this patch, it'll be done when it's done!

Anybody using the SSL2+


That interface is gaining some popularity and I'd love to play with it myself, see how it stands up to the SSL Duality console I used to use!

All.
here is a comprehensive list by sweetwater of usb audio mixers with lots of inputs. it looks to me like the number of entrants is growing from last time i looked.
i know the soundcraft and allen/heath are well regarded.
the new mackie pro fx v3 line also looks interesting with compression on some input channels unlike some other mixers but i think i'm correct in saying the new mackies will only record to 2 traks at a time into the daw.
this list is just an alternative to the typical usb devices we all buy.
https://www.sweetwater.com/c264--USB_Analog_Mixers
for more info consult manufacturers web sites and also lots of reviews on you tube.
the above list might be of interest for users/small groups of musos needing lots of inputs

That is correct, having used them myself. Most mixers with USB work that way, with only a few exceptions in the lower price range (more of the expensive stuff does have multitrack interfaces built in).

Reminds me, I have a Mackie Onyx 1640 with the firewire interface that I need to finish rebuilding. Wonder if it'll work in BIAB...

Very impressive at that price, and the even lower priced UAD Volt 2 which currently is priced the same as the Scarlett 2i2. There are so many interfaces to choose in the sub-$300 USD price range, but I think the UAD will take off if the 610 and 1176 emulation in it is good. Personally would've preferred an LA-2A over the 1176, at least for vocals, but the 1176 is definitely no slouch!

Simon..
sometime check out a plug in called rough rider i got once with computer music mag uk. the mag is 20 buks.
but gives you access to 80 instruments n fx plug in.
best 20 buckies ive spent.
here is rough rider now version 3 https://www.audiodamage.com/pages/free-downloads
i have an earlier free cm mag version.
i like experimenting with it in conjunction with pg's own
dx plug ins...to get some mojo.
many reaps users also like stillwell plug ins...
interesting comps etc...
https://www.stillwellaudio.com/

also check out the free reaps js plug ins includeing 1176
and major tom etc.
these are interesting also..
https://www.hornetplugins.com/plugins/category/dynamics/

yep i'm happy with audient so far. but i might try out
motu m.2 next. hearing lots of good things.

lol..its a pity noone wants to pay to stream original songs these days otherwise i would be into threadrippers n m1 processors etc etc. and a BIG audient mix console...lol

Good to hear! We here at PG can't recommend one interface over another for obvious reasons, but it's on my list of "brands that typically work well".

RE MULTI CLIENT ASIO….AUDIENT.

Good news…I just heard back from audient confirming the drivers for their usb audio interfaces are multi client !
I thought i might test their tech support turnaround at the same time.. Impressive ive found.
And NO before someone asks i have no link to them other than as a user.
I’m just a happy user for the last year.

as always i recommend with any new gear , rent it for a month to see works well with your recording rig.//ymmv.

julian krause, who i find is very knowledgeable re audio interfaces...has evaluted some more recent audio interface products here...

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=julian+krause

one i found recently that folks might want to check if they need a interface with good preamp gain for gain hungry dynamic mics...is interface by lewitt with 72 db of mic pre gain....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_8rCMJLM7g

https://www.lewitt-audio.com/connect-6


NOTE...as always ymmv and, if interested, i recommend
renting or get a 30 day return from your local gear store in case the interface doesnt meet your needs or isnt copacetic with your particular set up.

also for those needing multi client asio i just dont know.
contact the manufacturer.

happiness.

The Lewitt Control 6 audio interface looks very interesting. It has a lot of connectivity options, two independent headphone jacks, built-in DSP as well as a standalone two channel mixer option. Not bad at all for $299 US. Hopefully Lewitt USA will be able to convince USA music retailers to offer the product.

My Focusrite 2i4 is pretty much all I need since this is a hobby home studio. Doing everything myself I can only record one thing at a time anyway.

ive noticed over the years on pg some people seem to have sound devices that work fine with rb. others sometimes have issues.

I don't use expensive audio devices on RB I just use the system audio with Voicemeeter ASIO to create up tracks and mix. I had a Phonic 18ch USB Mixer I lent out and they had it on all the time using it as a system audio device and the power supply burnt out and I had to pull it all apart to fix it.
RB used to crash like ALL the time but directly they made it 64bit I rarely got a crash.
With Voicemeeter you have Voicemeeter ASIO and Voicemeeter AUX ASIO so I can run Biab on one ASIO and Reaper on the other.

You keep using this term multi-client.
Scarlett interfaces have been able to be used on multiple software apps at the same time for a long time.
Example: I run the stand-alone version of Kontakt and RB at the same time thru it commonly.

Send MIDI to Kontakt, and use the Audio Out routings in Komplete to get it back into the Focusrite mixer where I want it.
IE send Komplete out 5/6, which is routed back around into RB 3/4 inputs .. does this meet the requirements?
.. if so this has been the case since gen 1 I think ...
Or are you talking about syncing clocks? Cause syncing clocks is a whole different animal.

Or are you talking about having RB somehow talk to Kontakt (other than MIDI)?


Make your sound your own!
.. I do not work here, but the benefits are still awesome

rharv.

i looked all over google trying to find if the new interfaces are mc.
i dont understand why this info isnt readily available on the net. its tough to find this info on lots of interfaces re mc.
also the interfaces market moves fast.

focusrites are already in the mc list in the tips forum
which has good definitions of mc.

thanks.

Interfaces are not multi-client - drivers are. Since Focusrite uses a universal driver for the Scarlett interfaces, this should mean that all Scarlett interfaces are multi-client.

Other manufacturers are likely the same, however this is a pretty broad generalization. For example, Behringer uses ASIO4All for some of their interfaces (which is NOT multi-client), while others have bespoke drivers (which may or may not be multi-client).

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
