    I am a drummer and recording myself for practice as well as to make tracks to give to my drum teacher at the local music store to recommend me for gigs(demos basically). I am using the following equipment

    Dual Processor G5 with Cubase SE 1
    Audio Buddy Dual Mike Preamp/ Direct Inbox ( 2 imputs) w/ Phantom Power
    A samson omni directional mike and a Shure 58
    Vic Firth Isolation headphones.

    My issue involves headphone mixes.

    I can record and mix tracks fine with my set up. However, I would like to remove my drum sound from my headphone mix entirely( I can hear myself fine through my isolation headphones on). The mix in my headphones with the tracks I am recording to is very cluttered and makes it very hard to give a full performance when I have all this other drum sound stuff going on. My ultimate goal is to fully mute both my kick drum sound and the mike that I am using for overheads.

    What I am doing is I have VST on manual mode with the default settings. I have 2 mike inputs for controlled to go to 2 seperate tracks so I can multi track

    Overheads are on Track one
    Kick is on Track 2
    Backing track or the music I am recording my drums to is on Track three

    I would just like to mute the sounds of track 1 and 2 in my headphone mix but still have the recorded signal in the tracks where they are assigned.

    Any walkthrough that could be offered would be awesome. Thanks in advance.
