How to use Focusrite Scarlett-Solo Gen2 with Bias FX?



  • I'm used to my very simple iRig as an interface for Bias FX.
    I recently purchased a Focusrite Scarlett-Solo Gen2. How do I connect it to my MacBook so that I can, not only hear what Bias is doing, but also everything else on the computer through my studio monitors?
    In other words, all I hear through the monitors is Bias. Everything else, iTunes, Youtube, etc, only come out of the laptop speaker.



  • Hopefully you got it sorted by now, but if not, you need to set your Focusrite as the Audio Output device for OSX.
    You can do this from System Configuration -> Sound or by holding Option and clicking the speaker icon in the menu bar. You'll see a list of available output (and input) devices. Assuming your interface is connected and working correctly, you should be able to choose the Focusrite as the output.
