Problem sending audio from Logic into interface into desk and back!

Hello,

A while back I send some audio tracks from Logic X into my focusrite scarlett 18i20 into my allen and heath zed 24 mixing desk with various effects and then back again. It sounded good and I like using the desks EQ along with an outboard reverb.

This is how I set it up
1- sent audio out of Logic X into focusrite via USB
2 - in Logic sent the audio to outputs 3-4
3 - from output 3-4 had cable going into 2 channels on my desk.
4 - have 2 cables from main outputs of desk going back into input 1-2
5 - speakers are outputting through monitor outputs on Focusrite
6 - have a delay and a reverb pedal in my auxs to affect the audio

Now the problem was that when I had the Logic track sending to output 3-4 I could not hear anything from the monitors. When I had it set to stereo out I could hear fine and record as well as get the effects. But I was getting a feedback loop from the delay. I wondered why when I had it set up for the output 3-4 I was hearing anything and when it was stereo I was hearing it with effects but the delay was not producing rhythmic effects but a sort of ghostly hum. I tried three different effects pedals as well.

Any ideas please?

Because your monitors are hooked up to outputs 1-2

You should prob make subgroup outs in your DAW. Just send the track you want to output 3-4 and send the rest to outputs 1-2.

Think of it like Re-amping. That is basically what you are doing anyways, but with effects.

FYI: MY DAW compensates for external hardware. It has specific outs. I don't know about your DAW. You may have to manually compensates for the latency. I would refer to the manual for thast.

Thanks very much will try this and see what happens! I knew it was something simple.
