Audio Interface outputs dead? Effects Pedals, Units & Accessories

Audio Interface outputs dead?


Just registered, but I'm a longtime lurker here.

So to cut a long story short, I need some help to verify if one pair of my outputs are dead.

Interface is Audient ID22.

I bought the Rat 2 to finally have some real outboard gear. I don't use it with a guitar, just as an effect.

I had output 3 from the interface going into the Rat in, and from the pedal to return 2 in the interface. Also set up the ID22 software mixer according to many guides (Output 3-4 DAW THRU) and all that.

And for the life of me could not get it to work. Did more research and found that I need a reamp box. So I got the Radial SB-2.

Still couldn't get it to work.

Now I changed the outputs and send to the pedal via Output 1, back into return 2 and what do you know, I get sound, all is good. (Also configured the software mixer accordingly)

Connected my monitors to outs 3-4, nothing. (Mixer outs 3-4 Main Mix).

So in conclusion, no sound from the pedal via outs 3-4, and no sound from monitors via outs 3-4. The interface is new, a month old the most. I had never connected anything into outs 3-4 before I got the pedal two days ago.

Is there anything I might have missed, or should I contact the store I bought the interface from?

If i am understanding you correctly, you never set up the main outs 3/4 in your DAW. You need to either make a send on the master bus or direct the tracks to the main outs 3/4 inside your DAW, not only your cue mix software.

This is why outs 1/2 work and 3/4 do not. the DAW is just like a mixer.
