I’m new to Ardour and I’m having a technical issue I don’t know how to resolve.
I’m recording a series of mono tracks right now. Basically when I load a new track, half the time it doesn’t record anything after I press record. I was eventually able to figure out why - it turns out that every other track uses something called “capture_2” for input. Capture_1 works fine, but when I use Capture_2 there’s no wave form and no recorded audio on the track. I have no idea what a “Capture 2” is or how to fix this.
I have developed a work-around. I can simply move the green circle over to Capture_1. But that means that I have to manually fix the input for every other track, which is an enormous waste of time. I’d like to be able to tell Ardour to make ALL the tracks record via input 1. Or, even better, I’d like to figure out what Capture_2 is, why it’s broken, and how to make it work for me.
I have no idea what would happen if I was recording stereo tracks, but I suspect this would be an even bigger problem then.
I’m using ALSA and a PreSonus Audiobox 22VSL, in case that’s relevant. Ardour 5. Ubuntu 18.04.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
