RT4 inputs and outputs

Hi, I just hooked up a new RT-4. The mic inputs are always on as are the outputs. This is with Cubase closed or open. In the past with my UR-824 the mic would only pass signal when the monitor was enabled. In Cubase, I don’t see any signal unless the monitor is selected, but I can still hear a live mic. Does anyone know how to fix this? I assume it is something in the hardware setup, but can’t find it. Can anyone help. Thank you

Have you checked out the hardware tab in f3 mixer? Or open dspmixfx (without cubase running), there are monitoring settings:)
