Play Acoustic: Aux In Type - Live or Tracks?

Question

There are two different settings for the Aux In Type parameter on the System tab of the Setup menu. What is the difference?

Answer

You should use one of the three settings depending on how you want to use the Aux IN:

  • Live setting - Use the Live setting when you are playing live or processing a recorded vocal track from your DAW using the Aux IN to provide guide tracks.
  • Tracks setting - Use the Tracks setting when you are singing along with pre-recorded music, e.g. from an MP3 player, which you are sending into the VoiceLive PlayAcoustic via the Aux IN.

Additionally, you may have noticed that on page 32 of the product manual, it states that there should be a third option, Monitor. This is a typo. This parameter is does not actually exist on the PlayAcoustic (although it does on the VoiceLive Play, PlayGTX, and PlayElectric models)

However, just above the Aux In Type you will see an option Aux To Main Out. Setting this to OFF will effectively give you the same results as the Monitor setting would, namely that the incoming Aux signals will be removed from the main output, yet will still be able to be heard via headphones.
