Multitrack record?

Recently got an RC505. It's great, but I now realise I can't record multitrack performances from it for later mixing. Strictly stereo out.

Can loopy stream to multiple outs on a compatible audio interface?

Or better yet, can I route it internally on the iPad to a DAW like Cubasis? (I know audio routing tech on iOS is on flux right now, not sure what latest version is)

Thanks!

  • Yep, you sure can! With Audiobus, you can do both, on a track by track basis.

  • Amazing, thanks Michael!

  • Any chance someone can explain how to do this? Would actually love to know how to both send inputs to specific tracks within Loopy AND choose discreet outputs coming out of Loopy. When I search for these terms, I either find discussions from 2013 on how it isn't possible OR discussions like this one that say "now you can do that!" but nothing that actually shows how. I am pretty new to all of this, so maybe it is just my ignorance on how midi works, but I feel like I put hours into trying different combinations of things that sort of make sense. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  • I would also love to know how to live record each output (colors) tracks in a multitrack session. I already have Audiobus but two things:

    1. I am not able to import my project into the AU version of Loopy.
    2. I can’t find a way to route more than 2 tracks into loopy (my audio Interface has 16 inputs).

    Re 1, open the full loopy app, then move your project into the Audio Unit Extension folder (which is in the project root folder), and you'll be able to see it from the au version of loopy.

    FYI you can't host AUs inside AUs so any AU effects etc will show up with loading errors when you open the project within Loopy AU

    Also, I've just realised that the above info is in the LP wiki on the AB forum:

    Thanks! One interesting solution I've found today is opening the Multitrack DAW app simultaneously and recording the same inputs I am using while I play my performance, so at least with this technique, we can have separate versions of the tracks in order to assembly a future mixing session in Pro Tools or other similar DAW for mixing.
