How do I add reverb to my vocal recording without recording

    I am trying to add reverb while I'm singing. But I do not want to record
    the reverb.

    my mic is on the channel 1 on my Behringer UB1204FX mixer.
    The mixer's ALT3-4 is connected to the computer soundcard L/R input.
    The computer soundcard L/R output is connected to the mixer channel 7/8.
    Channel 1's FX knob is turned all the way down so that I don't send any
    effects from the channel 1.
    Channel 7's FX knob is turned way up, so I can add effect to the output
    sound from the soundcard (I sense no delay between my singing and the
    output sound so I'm using the output sound to monitor my singing).

    So I record using a sequencer, thinking that my voice was recorded without
    the reverb. But when I play back I still hear that the reverb was
    recorded along with the vocal. When I hear the playback through the
    channel 7/8, ofcourse I turn the FX knob on that channel all the way down
    (so I could hear what was recorded). But I still hear the reverb. Help me.

    All that you need to do is a little simple repatching. First adjust your channel 1 microphone gain so that your slide fader is set to " 0" and your output fader is also set to " 0". Once you have accomplished that and you just want to record a vocal, without any effects, take your effects 1 send, switch it to "pre" and feed effects 1 to the input of your sound card. Monitor the output of your sound card as you have been doing through channel 7/8 but do not send anything at all to effects 1 since that is now an isolated microphone feed for overdub purposes. Make sure that your effects/reverb returns are not assigned to any effects/auxiliary sends. This should solve your problem of printing reverb to the sound card since you have no isolated the microphone without effects and said that in an isolated manner to the input of the sound card, either channel, or both, arming only 1 record channel in your software. This should solve your problems.

    No financial return on reverb
