So I am at my wit's end. I bought an 1810c recently and I am struggling to figure out how to disable input monitoring to my main speakers. No matter if the DAW is off or if I switch the sound of my main computer output to my gaming headphones, if I talk into a mic on any of the 4 inputs on the 1810c, it plays through the speakers. This is super annoying especially when trying to record in my DAW with that ghosted, monitored mic input playing underneath what is going on in my mix.

The audiobox 96 had a mixer knob that I could turn down input monitoring completely and was super helpful but I don't see anything like that on the 1810c. I've tried disabling all microphone inputs in Windows but it still plays my voice clear as day through my Sm58.

Thank you to anyone taking the time to read this, any help is appreciated.

LOL right after posting this I realized you have to click on the picture of the interface in the universal control to open up the input controls. Muted the inputs and voila I can record in my DAW and not have constant playback on my speakers.

Leaving this for anyone who might be in the same position I was.

Edit: Sometimes I have to hit the "reset" button under "main mix" in that section after restarting my computer for it to mute the mics again. Kind of annoying, lol.
