Software Monitoring issue w/ Focusrite Scarlet 18i8

Recommended Posts


I'm hoping someone can help me out with this since I can't seem to find an answer through Focusrite. I recently bought a Focusrite Scarlet 18i8. My problem is that I can't seem to monitor my instruments through Logic X!


The default routing preset in the "Scarlet MixControl" is "Zero Latency Tracking". I have changed this to "Daw Tracking" and while when I play my guitar through the interface I can visibly see a level both in "Scarlet MixControl" as well as in the channel strip inspector in Logic I cannot hear my interment at all (let alone wit audio FX). It is not until I have recorded onto the track that I can then hear the signal with its Audio FX.


I am fairly new to routing and using interfaces so I'm sure i am just inexperienced and it is something simple. Please go easy on me if thats the case!

Thanks for the reply. I forgot to mention that I have already been in preferences>Audio and I have" 24-bit recording", "software monitoring" & "input monitoring only for focused track, and record-enable tracks" selected so unfortunately that doesn't seem to be my problem. :(
