Hi guys!

I ll try to be brief and concise here:

Can I record a Roland MC 101 over USB on Maschine 2.0 by using my PC USB port only?*

*I don t have any external sound card, maschine mk3 nor maschine +.

I am asking this as I cannot record with my usb microphone straight to maschine 2.0, I have to record on another software first, then import stems on maschine 2.0.

Thanks guys

G.

    The 101 seems to have a USB Audio driver, so if it shows up on Maschine's Preferences and is recognized as an interface it should be possible… But note that Maschine does not support using 2 different/separate interfaces for Input and Output (hence why USB mics are problematic). So, if it does work you would have to record without hearing then switch back which is not very practical, I'd invest in a cheap interface.

    On a MacOS different interfaces can be merged as a solution, (aggregate devices/multi-out) I dont think Windows has that functionality built in but maybe there's free software to do that, a experienced windows user would need to confirm tho…

    According to internet it seems that Windows users can "aggregate devices" through Asio4all. Haven't tried that yet though. Thanks for the hint, as always.
