    Help me please!

    My setup is vocal/ guitar into mixer (Yamaha MG 10/2) into computer (Audiophile 2496), then back into mixer then to monitors.

    I know this is possible as I had this setup working before - but I can't for the life of me figure out how to do this now - I keep getting the signal from the computer looping back into the computer - whereas I need this signal to be separate

    - does anyone have this mixer I know its pretty popular? or perhaps someone who has a better understanding of recording could help me sort this mess out?

    here's a link to a picture of the mixer:


    Please someone help me!

    FYI your image link doesn't work.

    You need to check that your mixer is not routing the computer signal to the outputs, which it probably is.

    Mic -> channel 1 -> aux 1 AND main fader up
    Guitar -> channel 2 -> aux 1 AND main fader up
    Computer -> channel 3 -> EITHER but not both
    Whatever one you send the computer to, record from the other.
