    Okay, so I need something besides a PreSonus Studio Control Center or a Mackie Big Knob to switch from monitors to headphones. I record in the same room all of my equipment is in. The sound is crystal clear but I just don't feel like shutting off the monitors every time I have to start recording. Any suggestions?

    That is precisely what the two units you listed do. What specific feature is it you need?

    Just something to quiet the monitors and turn the headphones on because I can't record with the monitors on for obvious reasons, I was looking for something a little less pricey, there's features on those I would never use unless I was in a bigger studio.

    Are your headphones AND you monitors both plugged into the Fast Track Pro? If so you can use something like the TC Electronics Level Pilot which is what I use with my powered monitors on location.

    Furman HA-6AB headphone amp has 6-channels of headphone output and the ability to run studio monitors. Press a button and it diverts the signal to the monitors rather than the phones.

    I use a small mixer - the Soundcraft Compact 4 to be exact. It has 2 stereo speker outs and 2 headphone outs.
