Speaker playback while recording.

Recommended Posts

Hi, I don’t know if this is a dumb question but I have my Helix set to 1/4” out to my speakers and have USB set to computer. When I open my DAW and set to record, I was wondering if I can hault the straight signal to my speakers while I monitor through the DAW. There is two signals simultaneously coming through my speakers, direct and through the DAW. I hope this makes sense.

thats not the problem... the problem is when its switched on, its double from my daw and straigth playback to my speakers.. when my monitor is switched off... theres still playback direct to speakers.

Ok, im not 100% on what you hope to achieve.  i purposely chose speakers which had a volume control,  when im recording, i turn the speakers down or off and work through headphones, that are plugged in to the ux.

ok... ill try to explain better... if im recording and monitor in my daw is on, i can hear through the speakers normal playback (ie how it normally sounds with daw not even turned on) and through the daw. when i turn track monitor off, i can still hear it normally through the speakers still. is there a way to turn off playback straight to 1/4inch speaker inputs so i can have that quiet UNLESS the daw monitor is turned on?

Yes. When I turn off DAW monitoring, I still hear normal playback like I would when I’m just playing through it normally.

Ok. So you want to turn down the volume on the input from the helix? So you only hear it when you switch the monitor function on in your DAW?

Also, if your speakers are connected to your Helix, and you want to monitor your wet tone from the Helix, typically you would leaving Monitoring off in your DAW.

You know I’m an idiot, I was thinking the other way around. This is definitely the answer. Sorry for my helix nOOb question and thank you!
