You can't "fix" this. It is a feature. You'll find that most mixers, DAWs, All-in-one recorders work in a similar manner. They do this so that you can be sure to get a good signal to disk without comprimising it by using the effects. You can always add effects after the fact but once they're on disc, you can't remove them. What I would do is keep a log of the effects you use for each channel as well as the parameter settings. You should really be doing this anyway. It's good practice and something you will have to do should you want to persue this in a pro studio environment. (The console gets zeroed before you leave. Sometimes there's a charge for every fader/button and nob not returned to 0).
I have four tracks recorded. I would like to use an external effects processor to add an effect to one of these tracks. Can I mute three of the recorded tracks, then connect the output of the vocal track into my external effects processor and route the stereo outputs of the processor to newly assigned tracks on my DP 01 FX/CD and record?
