I have a multi-track setup with Adobe Audition and a Motu 828mk3. I currently have three tracks laid down. I want to mix those three tracks down into one track, but I need to constantly adjust the levels of the mix throughout the playback. What I would like is for my existing tracks to act like it's its own input that I could then "record" on the new track.
However, this does not seem possible. Audition only lets me tell a track to record off an actual input, and a track can only send its signal to an actual output. Ideally, I would be able to tell my new track 4 to record its signal based off what's being sent to the master output (or any other output on my 828) from the other 3 tracks. But alas, that can't happen.
What I've tried instead is I got a patch cord and physically connected the Analog 1 output on my 828 to the Analog 1 input of my 828. Now I send the 3 tracks to Analog 1 out and on track 4 I actually record off of the Analog 1 input. This actually works great, but it strikes me as incredibly crude since I figure this should be possible to do without re-routing all the way back out to my Motu box -- I feel like this should be possible exclusively through Adobe Audition itself. Am I missing something?
