Isolate Tracks With a Mixer or Rodecaster Interface

If you are using an audio mixer to record with Riverside, limit echo and audio feedback by enabling its Mix-Minus setting, if it has one.

Mix-minus ensures that the audio you record (sent from your mixer to your computer) does not also include the sound signal that the Studio outputs (from your computer to the mixer).

  7. Connect the Rodecaster Pro's USB-C output to your computer.
  8. Join a Riverside Studio.
  9. Change your audio input and output in the Lobby or in the Studio and select RODECaster Pro Stereo for both input and output.
NOTES:
It is important to use Rodecaster Pro Stereo mode and not Rodecaster Pro Multitrack/Multi-channel mode because computer browsers can only detect two channels.

Rodecaster Pro II: Use 'Chat' for Mix-Minus

If using a Rodecaster Pro II, it will appear as two devices after you connect it to a computer: RØDECaster Pro II Main and RØDECaster Pro II Chat. Choose RØDECaster Pro II Chat, which has mix-minus enabled by default.

Step by step

  1. Connect the Rodecaster Pro II's USB ➀ output to your computer.
  2. Join a Riverside Studio.
  3. Change your audio input and output in the Lobby or in the Studio and select RØDECaster Pro II Chat for both input and output.
TIP:
To share audio in the Studio from another application on your computer, you can also connect the Rodecaster Pro II's secondary USB 2 port to the computer and select "RØDECaster Pro II Secondary" for that application's audio output. More information is on Rode's site: USB Chat: The USB Output for Communications Apps.

Rodecaster Duo: Use either 'Main' or 'Chat' for Mix-Minus

If using a Rodecaster Duo, it will appear as two devices after you connect it to a computer: RØDECaster Duo Main and RØDECaster Duo Chat. Both devices have mix-minus enabled by default.

Please note: If connecting more than one audio source to the RODECaster Duo, choose RØDECaster Duo Chat, which outputs two channels (stereo) to your computer.

  2. Join a Riverside Studio.
  3. Change your audio input and output in the Lobby or in the Studio and select either RØDECaster Duo Main or Chat for both input and output.
