Learn how to seamlessly switch StudioRack between input and playback monitor modes. In Reaper and Bitwig Studio, this is done with a simple auto-sync setting. In DAWs such as Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase and Studio One, this is done by setting up HUI.
To use this feature, first set up a functioning SoundGrid network for real-time processing. For this, you will need a Soundgrid server, a SoundGrid audio interface, and StudioRack set up in your DAW. See setup instructions here.
Reaper & Bitwig Studio – Auto-Sync Playback/Input Selection
To enable this auto-sync option, select “Enable INP/PB Sync to DAW” in SoundGrid Studio’s Setup window.
This syncs your DAW’s monitor channel assignments and playback/input switching commands to any instance of StudioRack.
Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Studio One & Other DAWs – Sync via HUI
With other DAWs, StudioRack uses a virtual HUI device to sync the DAW transport to StudioRack’s input/playback modes. This virutal device is installed automatically to your computer, but it must be connected manually to the DAW.
To enable this functionality and toggle between individual or grouped StudioRack Input and Playback modes, configure your DAW according to the instructions below:
Please note:This feature is supported in most DAWs, but not in FL Studio and Ableton Live, where you will have to switch between Input and Playback Modes manually.
For other DAWs, please refer to the manufacturer’s manual find where to select Mackie HUI as your MIDI Controller, and choose Waves SoundGrid StudioRack as the Mackie HUI Input and output devices.
