routing spotify to pro tools

is there a way to route my spotify on my mac to pro tools?
i want to sample some music from spotfy direct to pro tools, hopefully saving time for me to dump the sample into omnishphere 2. is there a quicker way?

outside PT - audio hijack pro ...

inside PT - soundflower will probably give PT access to Mac output .. but i do not like changing my sound card ... and i do not like the Aggregate .. but you might have to use both to get that to work ..

Get rogue amoeba LOOPBACK. A simple but beautiful little stable software that allows you to interconnect all your audio streams on a single machine. You can even create one device to stream up to 32channels between daws.

My RME interface allows me to loopback and record. Click loopback, and then record into pro tools with the track muted. Happy days. Steinberg UR824 has it too.

Or, depending on your interface, grab an optical out of the computer to an optical in on the interface (S/PDIF).

Does this mean I could route many different instruments individually from Logic X to Ableton, and have them on separate tracks in Live?

I've used Soundflower and it seems you can only route the output of Logic X as opposed to individual tracks... cheers!

Hi

Soundflower will do what you want - best to create an aggregate with your interface and SF64 then launch both ableton and logic with the agg as your device on both. Logic will then have to have multible outputs set up as you need to send to ableton - not as easy as in PT. Some OS's got confused over which order the aggregate is set to but its easy enough to test - a stereo audio output means you'll have 66 outs in total for the agg.

It may work with Logic just outputting SF64 but ableton will have to be the aggregate I think. Clocking is an issue to be aware of and both apps should have the same clock and audio settings. With PT I always make sure the buffer size is the same as well but never known if that causes an issue

Loopback is cleverer but Ive not got round to testing it yet and im still running osx 10.95

Has anyone found a away to use Loopback so that you can use OSX BT in-ears at the same time as Apollo?
So far, every method I've tried kills my HW insert or causes nasty distortion in the IEs.
PT aggregate w/UA, Loop & BT - no HW insert
Multi-Out w/UA, Loop & BT - no HW insert
Loopback - no HW insert
Tried to add PT, or UA and/or BT to the Loopback. Nada.

Will there not be horrible latency from encoding the audio for Bluetooth in any case ?

there would most probably be latency, but I'm just using the BT IEs toc check mixes on what many people listen to these days.

Since PT won't let CoreAudio use any Avid Interface when active, best way is to route iTunes/Spoitfy/whatever to the Macs digital optical out and plug it into the Avid interface. I think many studios do it that way.

Hmm, I see not really a thing to listen Spotify side by side. The limiter Spotify used is not suitable for comparison.
Compare it with the dynamic of Beatport.
The bast way is to buy a high quality version of a referenz track.
Use a good Luft meter and master your track how you like.

use an optical ( or something else ) out from your machine/interface if have it that is the easiest without having to fiddle around - if not use audio hijack and import.
