Topic: Direct Monitoring; how to turn it off on an input channel.
I am having a difficult time getting a mic into my computer without its input sounding over the speakers. I'm trying to connect using a Multiface II and Total Mix. How does one turn off direct monitoring on an input so that the mic signal going into the computer isn't heard over the speakers, but still reaches the computer....without messing up everything else? A previous answer did not help, and when I tried those options, they didn't work for me, and I had to spend a few hours reinstalling and rebuilding the TM ("Direct monitoring is off by default. You have two easy options to ensure the input monitoring is not active. Options > Reset Mix > Straight Playback will set the mixer back to a default state. Or you can completely disable the input monitoring by switching modes. Options > Operational Mode > DAW mode.) I don't want to "reset the mixer" and lose all settings, and DAW mode just made a mess of things. Any help someone could provide would be greatly appreciated. I must admit I am finding TM very confusing. Thanks.
