    How to record through speaker monitors while monitoring through headphones

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi there guys.

    I would appreciate a little guidance here, since Iím having the hardest time trying to find a solution for something I know that Reaper manages for sure.

    What I want: I want to record the output of a single track through my speaker monitors, without recording all the other project tracks. Meaning that I want to use my interface (Focusrite Scarlett) as a Guitar Amp along with a pluggin (Guitar Rig 5), and tape that performance with a mic. But I want to monitor the entire project through my headphones.
    I sense thatís something to do with the routing matrix, but I canít get it to work.
    Jesus, itís hard to explain!!! Do you get it?

    Iíll try again:

    I want that the output of my speakers (connected to the audio interface) to be only the track that Iím playing in real time without the bleeding of all the other tracks (drums, other guitars etc). But to be able to play that performance, I need to hear all the tracks though my headphones.
    Speakers: Guitar Track
    Headphones: Entire Projet

    Can someone, please, help me on this one?

    Which Scarlett?

    You're going to need more than two outputs so one stereo pair can be your monitor and a separate output can be the guitar output.

    That's the first thing that leaped to mind for me too.

    Tho you could make do with just stereo by treating the project and solo guitar as distinct mono mixes. That might involve some wonky cabling tho.
