noob effect

Hi. my problem is that when i am monitoring my instrument channel and want to test my guitar only clean sound is comming, no effects or EQ’s.
i am able to here the effects when i play the recording.

is this a sound card or a routing problem?

thx lars

usually due to having direct monitoring switched on.

Okey… I want to be able to hear the sound (with effects) when Im recording my guitar. How is that posible. If I’m not monitoring the channel no sound is coming is that right?

please can anyone help me…

Lookup Direct Monitoring, It has nothing to do with the monitor button!!!

Switch off direct monitoring.

thanks alot. that was it…
