Help: Mackie Big Knob

Hey guys. Hopefully someone can help me with this. I've got a synth plugged into "Source Track A" on my Big Knob, and then have it running out of "output 2 track A" of the Big Knob into my DAW. I've tried setting it up so I can have no-latency monitoring while recording into the DAW.

The problem is that when I hit record , it records not only my synth, but my entire DAW project, as if my "DAW Mix Input" is also going through "output 2 track A" of the Big Knob.

Is there something incredibly n00bish that I'm just not getting?...Any help would be greatly appreciated..

I don't think the Big Knob can be used for cue mixing.

Well Shista...

So I manned up...and read the manual...here's what I found

Regarding the 2 track a outputs...

"the signal at these outputs is whatever source is selected with the INPUT SOURCE SELECT buttons on the front panel."

So yea..using the Big Knob as a cue mix while recording 1/4inch instruments will not work without being a pain in the ass...

Thanks for the help fellas
