Ill answer your questions in order
3. just trying to do two things at once and yes I do realize what im trying to do.
4. I just dont need more than 2 channels, I dont do a lot of tracking. My problem doesnt lie with not having enough channels Im just worried about a bigger issue, that my computer is not working correctly.
5. If I cant get the devices to aggregate then I cant monitor any which way. The rosetta 200 does not have any headphone outs.
Well you brought up some good points and I do realize them. Whats bothering me about the situation is Im just wondering if something is wrong with my computer. Ive had a few quirks not just the core audio aggregate issue.
Its really weird but I guess aggregating devices isnt stable. I just recorded at 96k and was able to monitor out of my computer. It seems that when I mess around in audio midi settings it will give me the outputs I need. By messing around I mean going from 44.1 to 96 and vise versa till it works! I just have to be careful about switching sample rates and always do it in audio midi settings. I was relying on Peak and logic to switch which didnt quite work.
I also tried a bunch of things and although I thought recording at 96k would improve my recordings when downsampling, it simply did not. No matter what when im downsampling its just not going to sound as good.
So in conclusion I guess Im just going to have to deal with 24 bit 44.1 both in Logic and Peak.
Thanks for the help Rounik and if you think I might be able to improve my recordings in any way let me know.
