I use an extra bedroom for my recording studio. Which means I often need to mute the monitors so that the mix is sent only to the headphones. At one time using the same AudioBox 1818 I’ve had forever, I was able to just mute the main speakers using the control room controls. Then I moved to a new house, new set up etc.
Now when I mute the main speakers using control room panel, the headphones signal plays through the studio monitors (obviously defeating the purpose). I become accustomed (grudgingly) to reaching behind the monitors and switching them off manually. While this accomplishes the intended result, it seems a bit Fred Flinstone, especially with the fancy Cubase Pro 10.5 software I’m running on windows 10.
Yeah. I thought so too. But I have the headphones coming out of channels 7 & 8 On the Presonus while the mains are routed through 1 & 2. Logically this should work. But alas, no dice. Unless the device itself is summing the signals. Which I’m not quite sure how to test.
