Got a response from Mackie:
Try toggling the REC SRC SELECT button on the back of the interface so it is in the down position it should be inputs ½ position.
Then disable the ½ button on the face of the unit.
You will still want the direct monitoring knob set all the way to cue.
This should still send the signal to the recording software while being silent in the monitors.
This worked! Problem solved
thanks again for thinking with me David.
