Those Focusrite pre-amps sound so good !
I went out and got a Saffire too, excellent !
Money well spent there.

There lies the problem. Your soundcard is a gamers card, not a pro-audio card. The trouble is, there are no (or very limited) routing options with gamer cards (as they don't need them). I just bought a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 to replace my M-Audio Firewire 410 (both pro interfaces, but the Focusrite has much better mic pre's). Direct monitoring is essential too.
Thanks for the info!Quote
You could try muting the track you're recording on to to prevent the feedback loop. If that doesn't work, you'll need a pro audio interface/card. I would strongly recommend one anyway if you're serious about making music.
I think ill upgrade the card...I want a crisp vocoder sound ... and im not going to take shortcuts. I want quality....Quote
I have a couple of audio interfaces which I'll sell if you're interested; M-Audio Firewire 410 and a Terratec DMX 6Fire 24/96, if you live in the UK, make me an offer. The difference will be night and day compared to what you're using at the moment.
Bad news...Im in the USA Thanks so much for your help though. Very appreciative
