    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?

    Something in your setup sounds a little weird. What mixer do you have?

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

    [​IMG]
    Plugs into the back of the monitors. (1 for each)

    [​IMG]
    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.
