I have a small yamaha mixer going through my soundcard(EMU 0404) and monitors. The problem is there is no headphone jack on the computer to plug my headphones into, and if I plug the cans into the mixer, it records the playback in the cans and new tracks going through the mic. There has to be a way to record while listening to playback without recording the playback with the equipment I have. Any Tips? Another problem: when I installed my new soundcard, the old soundblaster live had a white cable coming from the computer hooked to it which I left unplugged afterwards because the EMU had no such plug. I also noticed there are some other soundcard-like plugs higher on the CPU, away from where the PCI slots are, but these jacks don't seem to work(even though the manual says they are for sound applications). Is it possible that the white plug that I left unhooked was just for the soundblaster card and could it make the other jacks work? This is my last hump until really getting my recording going. I would appreciate any help.
