Didn’t want to start a new thread, and this is kinda related I felt.
So audio out to an iPad via USB works. When I control my iPad via MIDI over USB, I can also hear the audio through my Tracker Mini.
But can I sample the audio that comes in via USB somehow? I figured, if I can hear it, it must be possible to sample it. But I can only see “Mic” and “Line-in” as options in the sample recorder. And Line in does not appear to double as “USB Line in”. Am I missing a config?
@dmrschmidt, welcome to Backstage. I have created a new topic with your post anyway. It’s a good question and it can stand on its own.
Currently it’s not possible as the Mini only does Audio Out. But that would make for a good
I also don’t know if it is technically possible to implement this in the future, but it would be worth a shot!
Thanks for the answer and the idea to propose this in the wishlist. Unfortunately I don’t seem to have enough “reputation” or whatever the criteria are, so I’m not allowed to post suggestions there.
I’m pretty sure others will run into the same limitations, so I hope it’ll surface again and make its way on the wishlist regardless
Nevermind… I didn’t see
How this Wishlist works before I posted my last comment
+1 definitely. I see the mini being connected to the iPad very often to record instruments etc.
So doing it with the convenience of only using one USB-C cable for audio and MIDI would be killer.
Has this ended up into a wishlist item ? If no one is planning to or already created it, I’d gladly create the request.
I think this feature would be a must have, in order to use the Tracker mini with a mobile device on the go.
Would let us MIDI control and sample with just one USB-C cable.
I picked up the Tracker Mini thinking it would sample over usb. Hoping this will get added to the firmware pronto!
Sonicware SmplTrek can sample over USB…
I made the same mistake earlier
Please notice I created a proper Wishlist item for this feature request and I have linked this discussion to it
Tracker mini : Sampling via USB
Hey everyone ! Good news ! The wishlist I created for the sampling via USB has been validated and ready for voting !
So those who wanted the audio sampling via USB feature, please vote !
What is the problem?
Currently the Tracker mini allows outputting audio as a USB audio device and through jack but audio input/sampling only works through the built-in mic or line input.
What do you want to achieve?
It would be very convenient if we could sample audio into the Tracker mini through it’s USB-C port;
Ideally, the Tracker should be capable of sampling over USB both as a device and as a host.
Sampling as a USB Audio device use case :
Would make it a good pair with a USB-C smartp…
