    Default fast track ultra - can't get second headphone port working.

    I'm using reaper and I read somewhere that the 2nd headphone port has a different output mix of 3/4?

    Is this correct and how do I get it to work the same as port 1.

    On the monitor 3/4 tab of the Fast Track Ultra control panel, turn up the software return channels 1/2.

    You must have the unit plugged into wall power and you must be using a USB 2 port.

    Hope it's not too late to answer your question but in Reaper on the master track you have to click on the little i/o button and add a hardware output I think it is. From the drop down box it'll will be something like Fast Track Ultra 3 and 4. Hope that helps!

    There are multiple ways to achieve what you want is part of why this thread is so confusing.

    Out of the box. on the ftu digital return 1 and 2 are r and l of headphone one and 3 and 4 ar R and L of headphone 2.

    but it doesn't have to be that way.

    If you want the same mix in both headphones then you can modify the controls for 3/4 so that digital return 1/2 are up and digital return 3/4 are not used.

    regardless of how you route it to enable outputs 3/4 and 5/6 you need to have the ftu plugged into power when it's turned on.
