Zoom Livetrack 12 as Audio Interface into Reaper

Postby AMOS63 » Sat Dec 05, 2020 7:19 pm

Question about output settings, I installed the Zoom driver, set it as the input device in Reaper, but I can't get any sound. I can see Reaper is receiving the audio because the track and master meters have movement.
I have a USB port going to an Alesis USB console which drives my KRK monitors and I also have a MAYA XTE-44 Interface in my PC. Once I select Zoom L12 as my input, the only settings available in output options are 1 and 2 or 3 and 4. Any help would be appreciated!

If you're using the ASIO drivers then your input and output have to be to and from the same device. You could try swapping to Wasapi and see if that works for you as you can select different input and output devices.

Thanks, That didn't work. It said the sample rates didn't match

I figured it out, Reaper feeds the signal back through the USB into the Zoom, then I have to use the Master outputs on the Zoom, to go out to my monitors. I had no idea it looped back like that :headbang:

Ah, sorry, I thought you knew that and were deliberately choosing not to use the Zoom for outputs. My bad.
