Selecting different input & output device in Ableton 9


Ableton 8 allowed me to select one input device and another output device (effectively allowing to route audio from different sources through ableton and into a soundcard).

However in Ableton 9 in "settings->audio" I can only select a generic "audio device".

Is this feature gone completely?

Any help appreciated!

    Are you using a dedicated audio interface?
    If so, that is the audio device you should choose in the settings.
    The routing possibilities are still the same, as far as i know, and the amount of routing options depend on your interface.

    Just installed VoiceMeeter by VB-Audio ( and it seems to do the job.

    I made sue that my soundcard stays the default input/ouput device in the windows settings, so that other software (e. g. Spotify) is still working as before.
