How do I choose a different output-device?

I want to use my AudioBox as input device and my computers build in audio as output.

To clarify. I want to use AudioBox for recording and the computers build in audio as output on playback.

When I set my Audiodevice to Auidobox I can record and listen via Audiobox.
On playback I have to change Audiodevice to Build-In Output to listen to my recording via my computer.

This is not a good solution.

You can use with S1 only one device at this same time.

Thanks for answering.
Hmm that was a drawback.

I's very annoying to have to change audio device between recording and playback.
This should bot be a big problem to put this in as an option for the programmers of Studio One 2.
Almost any other audio program has this as default option., to have different input/output.

Hello,

You can make aggregate Device on Mac OS X. Open Audi MIDI Setup application, and click to + button, to create new Aggregate device. Specify, which devices do you want to merge into this one device. This will make one "large" device. You will use your Audiobox 1/2 Input as 1/2, and your built-in 1/2, as 3/4 in the Aggregate device. Same for inputs and outputs.

Open Studio One, and choose this Aggreate device, as your audio device. Choose Inputs 1/2 (from AudioBox) as your inputs, and 3/4 (which is built-in sound card 1/2 output) as your output.

If it's not clear, let m? know, I will make short video for you.

This is feature of Mac OS X only, not on Windows. You can solve this on Windows by 3th party universal drivers (which has multi-card support), like ASIO4ALL.

What Martin says.

To be clear though, and you can check this yourself to see, any device that shows up as a usable Windows audio device can be used for I/O (with different devices) with the Windows Audio driver, but it's likely a better idea to use ASIO4ALL for that.

But Windows Audio seems to aggregate all connected usable "Win" devices by itself. I mean, below, if a USB device or something was usable under Win Audio, I think it would still show up there along with everything else, like my USB headset shows up. So I do think Win maybe aggregates it's connected devices like that by itself.

But ASIO4ALL is still probably the better choice.

I'm proud to say, I'm finally a MAC user after 28 years with DOS/Windows.

Mac's are pretty sweet indeed. Every time I visit Best Buy I get tempted to put an iMac on my account there. Those things just sit on a table kinda doing a technology strip tease for you, calling you, teasing you, looking really inviting.

Unfortunately, they're a little bit out of my general budget.

My will power has won over... so far.

That's great to know, always good to have a different setup to learn all over(OS that is), at least your software should run the same however if you followed Lmike's( using windows WDM or WASPI drivers) advice you could of solved it on Windows at far less of a premium in costs i.e purchasing a brand new MAC.

One other good thing is you now have access to my brothers favorite audio DAW, Garageband. Don't laugh he has churned out at least a hundred songs on that platform even though he owns Logic.

Always good to hear about new systems being tried.

LMike, it's very interesting for me, what you wrote. So you can merge more device in Windows too. But these are not with ASIO driver, so there is large latency, isn't it?

On Mac, it works in low-latency mode, same as ASIO4ALL works.

It seems that - technically - you can, with the Win Audio driver. That USB headset in the graphic for example is just a random USB audio device that Windows recognizes. I think any USB device that actually works under Win audio would also show up that same way.

Now having said that ... ... I do remember some odd issues in some cases trying to actually do that, some occasional odd timing issues, audio speeding up or something, so I still think ASIO4ALL is a much better bet for that, it seems to always keep all the devices in sync.

My personal thinking is that Core Audio on OSX does all that much better than Windows Audio. Win Audio seems to - technically - do it but I'm not sure it always actually works.
