Change inputs for Tape Recorder

0 votes
Is there a way to change the inputs into the tape recorder?  My interface is an Impact Twin, and while I use inputs 1 & 2 for microphones, I use inputs 3 & 4 for everything else.  When I open up the tape recorder, the default inputs are 1 & 2, and try as I might I couldn't figure out how to change them to 3 & 4.  I'm stumped.

In the DSP Status window, click Configure and select Route Inputs

That opens a matrix that you can use to route the input channels of your audio interface to Kyma input channels.

Hmmm.  I tried that and wasn't successful.  The impact twin has six inputs.  In order for the tape recorder to see tracks 3&4, what tracks do I select in the Route inputs tab?  I believe I tried making inputs 3&4 the default inputs but that didn't work.  I spent some time trying a couple of different things in here, but still wasn't able to get tape recorder to see anything other than input 1&2.  Do I deselect inputs 1&2?  I don't think I tried that.
I would route the TC inputs 3 & 4 to Kyma inputs 1 & 2. My interface is a different model, but usually that would mean checking the first box in the 3rd row and the second box in the fourth row down.
Copy that.  Will do, thanks!
Got it working.  I think what was throwing me off was even after I changed the inputs in the route inputs matrix, when I would open the tape recorder the status window shows Audio Input: 1 2.  And I thought it was actually say input: 3 4.  It now makes sense to me cause I've routed device input 3&4 to kyma 1&2.   I've got it and now working great.

I have here an Impact Twin and what SSC is writing is the answer.

I have 2 pictures with 1: basic settings and 2: what should work for you.

Thanks Roland.  I thought I tried this config, but it's very possible I didn't have things set up exactly like this.  Will give it a go and let you know the results.
This did the trick.  Tape recorder now using inputs 3&4.  Thank you!
