I have a Behringer 502USB mixer and Audio Technica AT2020 microphone. I have my Behringer mixer connected to my PC via USB and my headset connected to the phones input on my Behringer.
- record acoustic guitar on track 1
- play track 1 through headphones and record vocals on track 2
When I play track 1 (acoustic guitar) through my headphones which are attached to my Behringer mixer and attempt to record vocals on track 2, track 1 is somehow re-recorded on track 2 with the vocals. So I get acoustic guitar on track 1 and acoustic guitar + vocals on track 2. This results in the same acoustic guitar recording on both tracks, which sounds terrible. I would like to have acoustic guitar ONLY on track 1 and vocals ONLY on track 2, but can’t seem to get there. Somehow, Audacity is re-recording my guitar track 1 in track 2 with the vocals. Track 1 is not getting picked up through the microphone. It’s either a configuration problem with Windows or my hardware, or it’s a configuration problem with Audacity. This is completely maddening! Can someone help me?
