I want to start by saying I understand this is most likely not a problem with my 1824c or the Studio One DAW itself, and probably has something to do with Windows settings. But windows support gives nothing regarding this issue, and I feel like I've come to the end of the line hoping someone here had the same issue.

The problem is this: I am constantly hearing my mic input 100% of the time whether a DAW is open, closed, or even if my computer is turned off. I have my speakers routed from the main outs, and I've tried all of the outs as well with the same results. The biggest setback is that when I need to record a vocal for example, it makes the voice stack in the headphones making it louder, and it adds a doubling effect with a very slight delay. Changing through the sample rates did not help either. The other effect it has in Studio One is when I record-enable or monitor a track. For both audio and MIDI instruments, it does the same loudening effect as mentioned before.

I've tried a lot of redownloading of drivers and programs with no success and tried to go as deep as I could into the Windows settings to try and disable apps from using the interface. The last thing I tried was to delete the universal audio and Sonarworks, but the problem is still here. Any advice or a pointer to a better forum would be much appreciated.

Try installing Universal Control, connect your interface, then in the settings go to mixer bypass and click that button. That's what I did with mine when I first got it. Hopefully I could help or you resolved this issue.

I'm experiencing a similar issue using a MAC. When recording to my DAW (Adobe Audition) i hear the track I'm recoding doubled. If I mute the track i can still hear the input, and like the above user, even with the DAW not running the input can still be heard. There must be a setting I've missed to prevent this. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!!

Thank you victor, you really saved me! Took me a while to find the setting but in Universal Control, I had to double click the image of the interface and open the settings in the window that comes up. No problems after that!
