  • A Volca FM wouldn't be a bad option for pads. Being polyphonic. FM synthesis can be a bit harder to get your head around but it takes Yamaha DX7 patch presets, of which there are many freely available. Hi btw!

  • Maybe I’ll pick that one up next...

  • I have one to sell, let me know if you’re interested. Picked up a Digitone recently so that covers all my FM needs now.

  • Ah, good to know. I'm not on a Mac and haven't found a method on Windows yet, though. ;)

  • Yeah it’s one of those incredible features I wish I’d known earlier.

    Someone replied it was clunky. On Mac that has absolutely not been my experience. Takes about 10 seconds to set up and rock solid across whatever weird mix of interfaces I’m using.

    The same person mentioned ASIO4ALL may do the same job in windows.

  • Yeah, that was me - aggregate audio devices do work fine on the Mac, they’re not hard to set up (it helps that Core Audio is great tech) but you don’t get as much flexibility or control as a single interface with more channels.

    Better interfaces often use their own routing/setup software that more easily allows you to route ins/outs internally, switch between mono and stereo pairs etc etc. If you’re just needing to get channels into a DAW, aggregate devices are perfectly fine.

  • Thanks. I think I'd better spend a while getting to grips with these before I add even more gadgets though!
