Having bought Mixbus on special offer at Christmas I thought I’d see if there was any audible difference.
Opened a session in Ardour, exported the track, then opened the same session in Mixbus, exported, then phase inverted one against the other in a new session. They should have cancelled out, BUT what I was left with was the sound one of the reverb buses. I tried a few more times muting various tracks, but my audio buss 2 was always there as a ghosty remnant. I wondered if somehow one or the other DAW had inverted the phase of the buss.
Anyway… I’d love to report further but at some point I hit SAVE in Mixbus. This is where I need help! Now when I open the session in Ardour, (in addition to all of the stub plugins and extra busses), the Master can’t see any hardware output. The connection manager doesn’t list Master out as a bus - I can’t ‘Add audio port’ at the bottom of the fader (nothing happens - only the MIDI outputs are listed). I can create a new audio buss and route that to my interface so the hardware is working…
Helpful suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.
