Recording with 2 mics with focusrite 2i2

Post by guasaman » Fri Jan 10, 2020 10:05 pm

I have a focuriste 2i2 2nd gen and two mics, each plugged into one of the interfaces channels. I want to record each mike on a separate track, at the same time. MixCraft only gives me one option (Input 1/ Input2). Which means I can only arm one track at a time. At most I could record in stereo in one track, and then split each channel into two tracks.
The scenario is recording drums using 2 mics.
Is this a limitation of my interface, or I need to do something differently.
Thanks!
Gus

Disregard, I figured out that I have to first select one mono channel in one track so then I can arm the second track on the other mono channel.
Cheers.
