Seaboard Midi vs Audio

Hey, I'm new to working with MPE - I have understood that due to lack of support for MPE instruments that many DAW's have rather cumbersome work arounds - like Ableton, which I use. Can someone suggest a workflow whereby I can just manipulate AUDIO from Equator direct from my DAW? I can't seem to get my brain around getting it to work. Any advice would be appreciated and I'm sure I'm not the only one! (Roli: please pressure Ableton to support MPE as standard!)

To be able to manipulate audio from EQUATOR inside Ableton you will either have a few options.

  1. Use the above mentioned workarounds which can be found on the support page. And then route the output of the EQUATOR track to an audio track.
  2. Use this awesome custom midi control script which takes care of all of the workaround issues automatically: https://support.roli.com/support/discussions/topics/36000004122
    And then route the output of the EQUATOR track to an audio track.
  3. Route the audio from EQUATOR standalone into your DAW using either:
  • Audio interface "Loopback" function
  • "Soundflower", "Jack", "Max", or some other software audio routing program.
  • Physically route the outputs to inputs on your audio interface using real cables. BE CAREFUL WITH FEEDBACK LOOPS (Only works if you have more than 2 outputs and you set EQUATOR to output to secondary outputs - not the ones going to your speakers).

I have a similar situation with Studio One 3. I'm able to record, but I  have no sound on playback.
