Change Logic's main output to default system output?

Recommended Posts

Right now I have 5.1 speakers as my system's default output, and for the life of me I cannot figure out how to get Logic to play through them using the system's default output. I can only seem to get Logic to play through my Macbook's internal speakers. I just got Logic and am praying for an answer to this!

Mine only shows the input- not the output. That's very odd...

 

Not odd at all, you are in LP8.

Are you trying to play Logic back on a surround sound system?

What interface are you using and how is it set up.

 

How are your channel strips set up.

 

How about if YOU send some screen shots.

The cavalry beat me to it.

My timbers feel quite shivered.

 

I don't know about the calvary, but I do remember (barely) the time we went to help out Snow White. Oh the fun we had taking turns ...

Until that Pinocchio fellow showed up and told a lie.

She shivered his timbers and then she ... she ... well... I digress.

Yes, I am. My default output device is a 5.1 surround setup, using a USB connector.

 

I apologize, I am still a bit new- and unsure what you mean by how my channel strips are set up.

 

As for generic system info, I am running Snow Leopard 10.6. 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, and 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

Looks like Logic is not even recognizing that device or it would show up in the preferences.

 

It is taking a stereo output (from the computer system) and converting it to a pseudo surround sound.

 

You could look at your system preferences/Utilities/Audio-midi set up section to see if the device shows up, if it does, try creating an aggregate device. (see help menu for that section).

 

If it doesn't show up, you may need to install the drivers for it, or it may be broke, or Logic will not recognize it, or you may need a real interface.

 

 

BTW, welcome to the forum.

Creating an aggregate device did not seem to work. In the case I did not do it right I'll keep working on it...

 

Could you direct me to where I could download the drivers I would need?

 

Sure, If I can ever find your post with the link to that device. Some dung for brains keeps posting pictures of Snow white and ... oh wait! that was me. :oops:

 

... Anyway, the driver you may need is located in the link you posted. Go back there and look for the driver d/l.
