Topic: Change order of channels in Totalmix
I recently switched from using a MOTU 828ES to using a RME UCX II and an ADI-2 DAC FS. I only have headphones and monitors connected to the ADI-2 DAC FS and the audio is routed via SPDIF coax (using the breakout cable) from UCX to ADI-2.
I find it very convenient to always have my master channel in Ableton to output to channel 1/2 (software playback). That way I can open up my projects on the go and listen back using the other audio interfaces, for example the headphones jack on my MacBook Pro M1 Pro, without changing the output channels in each project.
The "software playback" channels in Totalmix are named and ordered 1:1 to the hardware outputs and starts with Analog 1/2. Is it possible to reorder the channels?
I can of course route software playback "Analog 1/2" to hardware output SPDIF and then software playback "analog 3/4" to hardware output "Analog 1/2". But it's easily a reason for confusion at a later state. To make it less confusing I can then rename all software playback channels to just numbers lite "SW 1/2", "SW 3/4" and so on, but the custom names is not communicated to the macOS system, so in for example Audio Midi Settings app, the channels are still named like the original.
So it would be great just to be able to reorder them instead.
I've spent about two hours reading the manual on Totalmix and learning everything, but haven't figured out if it's possible to reorder channels.
