To route Source-Connect to your DAW use the Source-Link AAX/VST/AU plugin by placing this on an auxiliary track, then selecting it as your I/O in Source-Connect. Alternatively you can just select a hardware input or output from within Source-Connect.
To test that everything is set up correctly and working, you can connect to any of the echo contacts in your contact list. You should hear voice come back into your headphones with a bit of delay. Don't worry, when you connect to a real person you won't hear this echo. It's just for testing.
If you get stuck, first please to ask for help by emailing us at email@example.com.
