The Multichannel Outputs configuration routes the loop channels directly to the outputs of your sound card. This configuration requires sound cards with at least 8 outputs. It enables the mixing of the loop channels with an external mixer. On stage, this configuration requires a sound engineer to mix the loop channels.
Each loop channel can contain many loops (overdubbing); each loop channel has a Mute button and a Solo button.
Internal plugins cannot be used with this configuration.

When in Internal Mix configuration, Repetito mixes internally the loop channels to stereo buses - which are then routed to the sound card.
This configuration is best when Repetito is used in a studio, but it can also be used on stage.
The Repetito user interface is similar to that of a mixer: each loop channel has a Mute button, a Solo button, a Volume slider and a Pan pot. Each loop channel can also have a Bus selector to specify to which bus the loop channel is routed.
The buses are either routed to the main bus (L-R) or routed separately to separate outputs of the sound card.
Plugin effects (AU/VST) can be instantiated of each bus and on the mains (L-R). Each bus can have one or sevaral plugins in a chain.
