A Way to Direct monitor and Playback Together

Continuing the discussion from direct monitoring and playback together?:

I have a solution.

Go to the Cotrol room (F4) and make an external input .

and Go to the audio track . make the external input as Track audio input.

And the Input monitor Thru the DSP mixer. playback will play always and Direct monitor will alway s be monitored

It is a simple way to detour the AI or ASIO Direct Monitoring

HOWEVER.
steinberg should make and option “Input and playback together” Beside the “tapemachine style”
