No playback w/ RPP255 as i/o
Hello everyone, I'm using v5.12.0 Intel 32-bit on a windows 8, Lenovo laptop.
I've been trying to connect my digitech RPP255 effect processor via usb to use as an audio interface to capture and monitor playback in Ardour.
Presently, Ardour recognizes the device just fine but I am only able to capture audio in this configuration. Playback is silent even though I can see signal bouncing on the track and master meter from the audio i just recorded on the mic. I tested to see if there was an issue with the captured audio itself by creating an new audio track and dropping a sample on there to audition. Still nothing. Then I thought it might be a port audio thing so I installed jackaudio 32bit for wndows to see if that would open up both in and out for audible playback but still no audio comes out.
I also checked a number of things on the digitech to make sure it wasn't something silly like the usb playback volume being all the way down to zero.
Is it essential to run Jack control to get simultaneous playback and capture on the input and output? I found some good tutorials on jackaudio on windows and even after rinsing these I can't get audio to come out the master for monitoring. I've tried a number of different configurations in the routing matrix on the master to see if something wasn't wired up correctly but nothing works.
I'm not a programmer and feel I'm missing some small piece of the open source puzzle here that you smart gents can assist in.
Any help would be much appreciated.
