I’ve just started to dig into Cantabile for use as a VST effects host.
Have to say I really like the diagrammatic interface (wiring view) of input and output ports. To me this feature is very useful; excellent actually.
But there is something I don’t quite understand with Cantabile, and it may be a generic DAW thing: how the DAW doesn’t allow you to pull stereo signals from devices that Windows has registered as “recording devices” on your PC.
When using some windows audio apps, (let’s take Audacity since it’s a well known app; in my view not a DAW but more a wave editor), going into “device settings” you see a list of all the audio hardware devices that windows recognized - both Recording devices and Playback devices.
And you can pick both a Recording device (input) and a Playback device (output) to suit the needs of your work session. All good.
Now, in CONTRAST, when I use Cantabile, under Preferences -> Audio Engine I am prompted to select an OUTPUT device, but there is no way to select one of the windows registered Recording devices as an INPUT source into Cantabile.
Why is that ?
PS: If it can be done and I have simply missed it, please drop a brief hint as to how ?
