Ok, so I have my monitors wired into my mixer's line out, and my other line out goes to my PC for recording.

However, I have shitty 2.1 desktop speakers and would prefer my monitors instead. Only way I have sussed, is to unplug my monitors, and plug the line in into them but then I can't record without switching back.

Grrrr, help please.

Why isn't this working already?

What mixer do you have?

What what you have written, your mixer has 2 line outs so the sound from the mixer should come out of your Truth's and also out of your PC speakers. Is that what's happening?

I have the exact same leads but the other way round;

Plugs into the back of the monitors. (1 for each)

The red goes into the jack above and the other red goes into a line out. (1 for each again)

Then the other line out is;

going direct into my line in of my sound card.
