Play Multitracks into KLANG:fabrik and KLANG:vier
Sometimes you do not have access to a live band but still want to experiment with your KLANG:product. Follow the next steps to see how to use KLANG:fabrik/KLANG:vier with multi tracks and your laptop.
What you need:
- Dante Virtual Soundcard
- Dante Controller & KLANG:app
- KLANG:fabrik or KLANG:vier
- Mac or Windows PC or laptop
- A DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) like e.g. Reaper, Logic, Protools, etc
We will use a free trial version of Reaper for this example.
Step 1: Download DAW – Reaper
Visit the Reaper website to download the DAW software to your laptop.
Install and Start Reaper.
Step 2: Select Output Soundcard
Make sure that the correct output sound card is selected in your DAW, e.g. Dante Virtual Soundcard. Go to Options -> Preferences… and choose your Audio Device.
Step 3: Import Multitrack Files
Import these multitracks to your session. Simply drag and drop the .wav or .mp3 files into your DAW. You can also import your own multitracks instead, or load your own session.
Make sure that your files are in Seperate Tracks.
Step 4: Audio Routing to Sound Card Outputs
Click on the I/O icon for track 1 on the left side of Reaper.
In the next window, go to Add new hardware output and select a mono output from the dropdown menu right below. Start with Output 1 for the first track.
Proceed accordingly with all remaining tracks and assign them to mono Outputs 2, 3, etc.
Step 5: Play
Next, in your DAW, click on the start of your session/tracks and hit the space key to play it. Now your sound card or Dante Virtual Soundcard will receive multitrack streams which can be sent into KLANG:fabrik or KLANG:vier.
If you have been re-directed to this page from your Quick Start Guide, please return there and proceed with the next steps.
If you use Apple Logic as DAW, please follow the steps below.
Step 1: Create New Project
Go to File -> New.
Enter the Number of channels you need, e.g. 16 as in the example.
Choose Mono Outputs and activate the Ascending Button.
Now each track on a multitrack line in Logic is routed to a different output channel of your soundcard.
Import the multitracks into this project and make sure that they are located on these tracks you have just created.
