I am going to be projecting a 42 min HD video file from my MacBook Pro at a live performance. I want to play out 8 separate audio tracks, ideally as part of the video file. I'll output those audio tracks as 4 separate pairs. I'll then be performing live parts along with this.
I am wondering what the best way forward might be for this. I have VLC, Quicktime and Resolume, although I am not sure how well any of them will work with multiple audio tracks and routing separate outs. I also want the picture quality and playback stability to be as high as possible.
I didn't realise that these video playback options could all work with multiple audio tracks. I already have a MOTU 8M for audio output so I'm covered on that side. I guess the big question is whether I run the audio from a DAW and sync it via SMPTE to my video file or whether I run a multitrack video file and route the tracks to different outputs.
