Asio Or WDM for Recording???

    Ok I'm using an M-audio Quattro Interface into a yamaha mixer MG10/2.
    I'm using Adobe Audition 1.5 right now to record, but I'm having problems recording. I wanna be able to record my vocals solo with being able to hear the beat while i'm recording then later mix it into stereo. It seems I can only record stereo with Audition. Would i need an asio app to record my vocals solo then later transfer it into a stereo mix? Like I said I still wanna be able to hear my beat while I'm recording, but only catch my vocals.

    This has nothing to do with ASIO. I can't figure out the issue you're having from your description either. I can assure you that Audition is capable of doing what you want.

    I think you need to go into more detail about how you're setting up your session, selecting inputs & outputs, connections to your mixer, your WINDOWS MIXER setup (VERY important, sometimes), etc.

    What I'm saying is I don't wanna record stereo mix. I wanna just record my voice by itself, but be able to have the beat playing while doing so.

    Yeah I read that & I guess it seems I can't do that in audition with a pro level card. That's why I was saying maybe I could with Asio? If I used an asio app instead of an wdm app which only lets you record stereo?

    You haven't answered the questions I asked about your setup.
    Your problem has nothing to do with your software, nothing to do with your sound card, nothing to do with your drivers, and everything to do with how you are using the stuff.

    I have audition
    I have a pro sound card
    I have ASIO apps
    I have WDM apps

    It all works fine.
    Please tell me EXACTLY how your system is setup and EXACTLY how you are setting up to record. You can do what you want with what you have.

    Everything is ok the way my mixer is setup. My interface doesn't have an option for recording in the control panel just playback. Is there a cetain way imma have to set my mixer up into my soundcard to do this? I wanna be able to record my voice on a seperate track without the music? but still be able to hear the music while I'm recording.
