Hello Bitwig Team,

Have been playing around with my Bitwig trying to setup having 2 audio inputs, both stereo.

I have a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface, as well as a Roland TB-3 which when connected via USB can act as an interface.

Is there any way for me to set the 2i2 interface as my audio output, whilst setting the TB-3 input AND the 2i2 input as record-able inputs as separate audio tracks?

Would love to get this going so that I can really get stuck into productions with my hardware!

Hi Promomag,

I've solved this issue by using ASIO4All drivers to aggregate my devices to be seen as one device within Bitwig.

You will also have to set your sound card/audio interface as the Default Audio Output device within your Windows Sound settings (Control Panel > Sound)

Once you have set your default device, open the ASIO4All offline settings and make sure all your desired devices are lit up within the ASIO4All control panel.

When you open Bitwig, view your Audio settings and select ASIO4All. You should see the total amount of Input/Output devices available to assign and select.

Hope this helps, took a while for me to figure out :)

I am in the same situation, and have the same question and would like to have an answer to this, I'm using Bitwig PC, I noticed for some of the Mac version there appears to be a separate audio input device that you can select, but I don't see this on the PC version in the Audio preferences.

I also have the same situation with the Roland D-05 and a RME Babyface. Any help would be great!

On a mac, this can be achieved with an aggregated Audio-Device in the native MacOS Audio/Midi Setup. On PC, a similar approach that has already been proposed by Mikey, using the same method via ASIO4ALL. Thing with ASIO4ALL is that it produces latency. The native macOS solution also does - I was using it both with a TB-3 and a TR-8, which was quite messy and needed lots of latency compensation adjustments. I got it running - but: To me, it was not a very satisfying experience, which even led me to sell my TR-8 due to the lack of outputs.

I guess as long as there is no integrated VST-Plugin solution that manages both control and audio-playback for the hooked up devices without the need for separate audio-input drivers (such as Overbridge for Elektron devices) it will stay a bit dissatisfying. I am not sure if there is any DAW accepting multiple drivers for input.

EDIT: By the way - I guess the correct question would be "Using multiple audio-drivers for input simultaneously".
