Mixing live sound sources while playing track(s) ?

Is it possible to play a track and do a live mix with the output? Currently the mixer goes “dead” whenever I click on the play button. I know this makes sense for recording, but I would like to use ardour for live mixing as well.
thanks Mark

Can’t help you with the specifics of how, but I can tell you it is possible because it works by default for me.

hi, i think you should play around with the ‘auto input’ feature to get what you want.


Thanks for your suggestions! I was able to work it out myself by taking a look at
this part of the manual
The trick is to use busses instead of tracks. Busses do not have the monitor switching that turns their inputs off when you start playing or recording.

thanks, Mark
