It's a problem. A USB turntable or USB audio adapter overrides your sound card and takes over the audio of your computer. That's great for recording, but it's not linked to your sound card's connection to your speakers, so while you can record flawlessly, you can't hear while you record which is a bummer.
So till now, we've made it possible to monitor what you record by plugging headphones or computer speakers into the front of the DAK Mixer Interface. And that works great.
But now, thorough some very innovative programming what we are doing is harnessing a computer capability called Playthrough. It's really a very neat programming trick, but what we do is capture the signal as we record and concurrently send a copy of it to your normal sound card so you can hear it. You can make MP3 recordings and you have timed no baby-sitting recording.
