    Hi guys,

    I’ve just bought a CQ20B and absolutely love but I’m very confused about a particular problem I’m trying to figure out. I can’t work out how to record drums to a stereo track using the USB A without also recording the click track or backing track I’m playing along to.

    I have my drums mic’d on inputs 1 to 7 and my click or backing track into ST IN. The drums are routed to Main LR but however I try to route the click track to a different Out, it still gets recorded. Does the routing of the click happen within the CQ20B “in the box” or do I need to physicallly route the click to a separate output with . The more I think it through, the more confused I’m getting.

    Please could anybody here walk me through a dummies guide to how I should be routed to monitor the MAIN LR mix of the drums and the click from the ST IN but not record the click?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    all inputs go to main l/r.

    what you can do is send to an AUX, and set the aux to pre-fader in config. then in the send channels, set them to 0db full send to the aux. this decouples the fader control from main l/r, so turn the fader all the way down to off. its now removed from main, but still sending to the aux, and you can control the aux fader volume there.

    this way you can record main (get drums + no click) or record aux (drums + click) etc.
