I recently bought the Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 and I'm pretty sure it's a setting or something I'm doing wrong.
I installed all the latest software that came with the unit through the website. Then I connected my piano through xlr on the first two inputs on the front in INST mode, and my microphone on the 3rd and the 4th xlr input on the front with phantom enabled.
When I open MixControl I can see all devices registering input. My monitor speakers give the correct output (piano and mic, as wel as windows sounds)
The issue arrises when I try to 'record' audio to Windows. Skype, Audacity and Windows Recording Devices don't take any input from the 3rd and 4th xlr input on the front. When I switch my mic to the first two inputs and leave the piano unplugged (and switch it back to line from inst) there's no issues and Windows picks up the sound.
Haven't tried other DAWs yet, but I find it strange that input 1/2 don't show issues where 3/4 do. Any help is appreciated.
