i’ve managed to use Carla as Wrapper for Superior Drummer 3 to use it in Ardour on ArchLinux 4.18.16. My plugin-outputs are configured like the following example:
- Kick -> Out 1/2
- Snare -> Out 3/4
On the Track of the Plugin i’ve added up to 16 Outputs which i’ve connected to the outputs of the plugin via the ‘pinout’ view. The track shows the level-meters in the mixer view and they are reacting to the plugin input.
Now i wanted to use some plugins and fx to modify the drums. Therefore i tried routing the Out-1/2 to a Bus ‘Kick’. As far as i understood i have to select the Out-1/2 of the SD3-Track as In-1/2 on the bus channel. The same for snare, toms and overheads.
What i observed then was that the routing was completely different and the Track-Out-1/2 was playing the output of the overheads. The ‘Kick’ was routed to the FloorTom-Track (Out-7/8) and so on… The routing was completeley messed up and i couldn’t find any reason for this.
I’ve checked the Ardour-Routings and the Carla-Patchbay routings twice as well as the JACK connections via Catia. I couldn’t find any mistakes. I don’t think it’s a problem of Carla because i’ve tried the same setup in REAPER for Linux and it worked like i’ve expected. Therefore i don’t think Carla is doing something wrong.
What did i do or didn’t i do that could lead to this specific behaviour? Is there another way i could do this?
Thanks in advance!
