Sound leaking to aux cahnnel

Hi! I don't know if im posting in the right forum, please redirect me if im wrong.
English is not my first language so bear with me.

My problem is as follows. I have a Soundcraft EPM6 Mixer and i am noticing a sound leakage to both aux channels.

I have a little setup at home where i use the mixer like this:
Mic to channel 1
On channel 1 i route the sound to AUX1 (post)
AUX1 out to the input on a Sound card (Apoegee ONE)
Sound card output to Stereo 2
Soundcard USB to Mac (with skype)

Also,
PC to Stereo 1
Phones output on the mixer to headset (which im wearing)

With this setup i want to controll the sound output from my Mac and Pc
And I also want to controll my Mic input signal to the sound card.

Everything works perfectly, except that people on skype can hear every sound i make on both the PC and Mac. So if im right the sound from Stereo 1 and 2 someway leaks into the AUX channel (which is the input for the Sound card)

Any help?

In advance, thanks for all the replies

I'm confused here how many devices do you have running thru the mixer? 2 computer's? You have any of the Aux sends on there prospective channels turned up?

Does your stereo input have an aux1 turned up at all?

If Aux1 on your stereo tracks are closed, there should be no "leaking".
Try connecting the stereos to mono channels (ch 3+4 / 5+6) or use Aux2.

Are you sure that it's not the sound of your pc/mac that get recorded with your microphone via your speakers ?

Allready tried that, and didn't change a thing. Checked that too.

Try disconnecting your mic. If the problem is solved, it's definitely the sound that comes thru your speakers and that gets rerecorded

Another possibility is to connect the mic via the insert on channel one to the soundcard input. You loose the EQ and fader and have to control the volume with the gain pot.

Yeah i'll try that.

Thats what i did before, but i want the eq and preamp on the mic. And i want to have the option to send sound over from the PC to the input on the sound card.

You are right, I wanted to make sure you did not have that on at all.
