    Hi I am new to this amazing site! And I came here in hopes of having my problem addressed! I will first address my equipment. I am working with a Rode microphone which is plugged into a scarlett 2i2 (focusrite audio interface) of which is plugged into my laptop (dell with windows 7 operating system) the DAW I am using is Ableton Live Lite v8. See now my problem is that I cant hear anything through my headphones except the microphone! Where as I could hear the microphone and youtube, iTunes and everything else before all through the headphones! I finally got the latency to go away and now this anybody out there who can help? It would be much appreciated!!!(y)

    Set the "Direct Monitor" switch on the 2i2 front panel to OFF when you want to hear what is coming out of the computer.
