In 1.0.7 I added a new config option in inconfig and outconfig for balanced i/o, its very simple it looks for an inverted signal on L/R channels and combines...
It works perfectly on my audio interface... but on my Virus TI it doesn't work.... the right(?) channel always shows no signal.
(both are advertised to have balanced outputs)
Im wondering if this is a 'hardware issue' and a misconception I have on balanced outputs.
I thought that if you plug a set of headphones into a balanced output, you sure hear the sound in both ears (albeit one is 180 deg out of phase).
True for audio interface , but this is not the case with the Virus... and a bit of research on the internet, I found this comment:
so this sounds like, its possible to have a balanced output that will not appear on both L&R because the circuitry is not 'correct'... ok, at this point my lack of hardware knowledge means I get confused about the different ways balanced signals are achieved
Is this true... is the headphone test 'flawed'? is there a better way to test?
is there anyway that I can get the Axoloti Input, to 'correct' this..
or is there some simple circuit I can add/cable 'hack', to make it work? (whilst of course keeping the benefits of balancing)
