  1. hi.

    i'm using my motu 896 firewire drivers to record and playback during shows or takes at home.
    but when leaving a show, and sitting in the van, heading home - i'd like to be able to put my headphones on, plug into the PC headphone out and listen to what i've recorded.
    WITHOUT having to use my 896 (since there's no power supply in the van.. ;) - my PC is on batteries here..).
    but i can't figure out,
    how to use both the
    motu 896 for recording AND playback, at a show and
    headphones out (internal soundcard) for when relaxing in the van.

    any help, pointers?

    Have you tried switching between the two sound cards? Go to: control panel> sounds& multimedia> audio> prefered playback device. That should do it for ya.

    the 896 is firewire and if you disconnect it from the laptop won't the computer start using again it's soundcard?
    i record reharsals with a little cheap usb thing so i can get a stereo track to a laptop! when i disconnect it the computer starts using it's soundcard!
  4. hey..
    yeah when i disconnect it it simply won't let me choose the PC's soundcard for some odd reason.

    would be nice if this problem went away.

    even in SAWStudio it doesn't work like i want it too.
