I love Backhole but it always screws me up when I restart my Mac and it’s the audio driver for everything. So I have to reset it when I hop on a zoom call or whatever. Just annoying.
I’d love a plugin that can loopback audio from the web browser but when the plugin is off, everything returns to normal. Not sure if that is possible or this plugin actually works this way, but for me it would be a lot better, even though Blackhole is free.
I don’t think it’s the same as Loopback and others. Those route the audio around outside the DAW, and require you to switch audio sources inside the DAW.
Loopback is also “just” a fancy device aggregator. I love it, but it’s not this.
The way I understand Injector (I will test the demo after my coffee), is that you keep using the same main audio interface with, say, Ableton. Then, this plugin can inject other connected hardware into the track.
It’s the same way Overbridge works. You can use your audio interface, and also your Elektron boxes via the plugin.
You could actually do that with the vcv rack vst and the input module in there. It lets you choose any audio source on your computer. I‘m having like two big interfaces connected simultaneously connected to ableton via that.
I checked the demo, and it works as expected, but the latency is significant. I hooked up the OP-1 F via USB, and “injected it” at 128 and 64 samples, and with all my usual latency-reducing tricks, it was still unplayable live.
