You have kind of an unorthodox set up and I'm not completely sure I understand how everything is connected.
So you have a mixer and you are coming out of the mixer into your Fast Trackand then to an amplifier and from the amplifier to speaker? Am I right so far?
If that's the case, can you explain to me once again how you have the TonePort plugged in?
Is the TonePort and the Fast Track both connected via USB?
Also, what operating system are oyu running on?

Ok here's how I've got it setup: (I'm running on Vista Home)
My desktop computer has the M-Audio Fast track Ultra hooked into it, which is connected to the Mixer. My laptop has the Toneport DI-G hooked Usb and the output where you would connect speakers on the unit is connected to the mixer on left and right channels. The mixer is run through an amp to 2 speakers. When I play through PODFarm on my laptop, lights show up on my M-Audio interface connected to my desktop, so I can use both at one time. The problem I have is, I have to open PODFarm to get any sound. And, I can't just leave it open. I have to start the audio first.. and then, open PODFarm to start to hear what's playing. This applies for any audio, including music.

I think the real cause of what you're experiencing is due to the fact you're running two USB audio devices simultaneously on your Vista host computer. Here's a good article to read up on ASIO driver limitations to have a better understanding of the fact that you should only have 1 active USB audio interface (ASIO driver) running at a time to get the proper behavior from each individual device: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_Stream_Input/Output
While many users have experimented with ASIO4ALL: http://www.asio4all.com/ this method of running multiple USB (ASIO driver) audio interfaces simultaneously on one host machine is not supported by us. You're more than welcome to try this, but you'll be on your own in terms of getting things to work properly.
Our TonePort DI-G + POD Farm software is designed to function correctly as the only device/ASIO driver active, if you plan to run it as a soundcard/interface. Otherwise, if you authorize the POD Farm Plug-In license in Monkey, you can use the other interface as your primary I/O device for audio, use the DI-G as the POD Farm Plug-In authentication device, but keep in mind this only applies to running a recording DAW that supports VST Plug-Ins for you to launch POD Farm Plug-In as an insert effect in the DAW. See this video for further explanation of the differences between the two methods of running the DI-G I just tried to type: http://line6.com/community/docs/DOC-1503
P.S. USB hubs are also unsupported connection points with our devices. You may be experiencing yet another layer of issue due to this method of connectivity as well
