Orban Optimod pc 1101 routing

Post by jbmusic » 15 Dec 2018 21:49

Dear forum members,

at the moment we are a very satisfied user of PF as a broadcaster.

Now we have purchased an Orban optimod pc1101 for a new playout. This replaces the current orban and with that we keep our current sound.

Now I only wonder what the best routing would be. I've tried everything, but get the audio in the orban, but not processed back to the streaming encoders.
Was assuming wave out -> processing -> wave and thus the routing for each other but unfortunately.
Now I wonder if there are people who use an orban optimod pc 1101 or equivalent, and how the routing is arranged?

thanks in advance

Grtz

Does the Orban come with any device driver?
Ie. if yes, it would show as individual WASAPI devices in the sound control panel and you would be able to define a mixer input channel accordingly, ie. a mixer input channel can pick up the generated cards output signal directly.
Have you trued that?
If not, add a new mixer input channel, select the WASAPI device mode and see, if you can locate the Orban as a device in the list.
If yes, select that mixer input channel as your streaming source.

Hi bernd,

Hi Bernd,

i am a bit confused...
I have created the WASAPI output on the orban (wave1 input true PC)
the soundcard seams to recieve the signal... i route this signal true the orban but the streaming encoder form PF is using the signal i send out too the orban. What am i missing...

Diagram of the soundcard:

Finall I found the solution. Wave2 out, and wave1-in on the streaming sever. Strange thing is that I changed the settings in the setup of the streaming page but he shows general wave out as source but this should be in my opinion wave-1 in.
I changed it per streaming line and this works for me. Perhaps a small bug or is there a misunderstanding from my side ?

I am not sure how that Orban card works?! You need to ask this the Orban support.
If it does NOT provide an internal loopback device to capture the processed signal (ie. as a mixer input channel, as explained above), than you can only feedback the signal to another’s soundcard device (pretty similar as if you would first route a signal from a soundcard to an external mixer and back into your system).

Glad you found the solution !
Well for the Orban, the input is the received PF output. While the Orban output is for PF the processed signal.
