Topic: Muting a Hardware Input
is there any possibility or workaround for muting Hardware Inputs in Total Mix FX via OSC, so that the Audio does not reach the DAW?
We are using a Fireface 800 at the moment. The only workaround I could think of is using the Loopback function and then turning down the fader of that Hardware Output or changing a snapshot. Unfortunately Loopback is not really an option, as it would waste too many channels and introduces latency.
Is there any other option using the Fireface 800?
If not: when using an interface with digitally controllable Preamps like the FF400, UC or UFX, is the 'preamp gain' setting controllable via OSC? I guess if the Mic Gain is turned down to 0dB this could work just like mute if combined with a Gate in the DAW.
