So now i’m getting into the sampling capabilities of the Octa and faced an issue.
Currently i have one of the outputs of my soundcard plugged into CD inputs of the Octa. My goal is to be able to sample anything that goes out from my computer, for instance a youtube video or any spotify song i play from my web browser.
I can see the CD leds blinking when i play anything on my computer. The problem is, when i go to the mixer and increase the “CD DIR” volume to about 30, i can hear the same sound my computer is playing kind of echoing. But if i increase more, i get a very very loud sound to the point the CD leds turn steady red and my speakers almost explode lol
I suppose the problem is related to the fact the Octa output is plugged into an input of my soundcard, and because the soundcard output is plugged into the Octa CD in, a kind of loop is happening.
As far as i know that in order to sample, i need to increase the CD DIR volume ; am i right ? What can i do to avoid that issue ? Maybe mute the Octa output while i’m sampling ? Is there a way to do it fast ?
