really? perhap a misunderstanding…
as I said, yes, my H5 is correctly identified and available as an alsa soundcard ‘out of the box’.
but in my test, synthor did not associate its IO to the INP /OUT channels.
even , restarting synthor did not change this.
(this was what I expected , and mentioned in this post even before trying.)
I should say, actually I would not want this automatic mapping anyway.
the issue is, if you map this audio interface to the same INP channels as the built-in adc, you have not expanded the number of channels, you have just overlaid them.
actually, I wish the the existing USB mode, did NOT do this, instead Id prefer we had a separate IN/OUT module where we could assign the these USB channels.
yes, I see its kind of convienient in some situations to have this ‘automatic’ mapping, but often id prefer to have the physical and usb i/o completely separated. (honestly, this merging could be easily handled in a patch)
anyway, its an interesting area to investigate…
I should say, whilst theoretically this feels simple to do, there may well be some nasty complications in practice e.g. the 128 audio buffer may not be sufficient for many usb audio interfaces, also theres fun and games around sync’ing clocks… that would need to be investigated.
