External output on individual tracks is loud and distorted?
I have a problem with the ext. out routing on the I/O. Normally I have all the channels going straight to the master, no problem. Recently I have wanted to route my main vocal channel out, through the ext. out, out of channels 3 & 4 so that the sound man can mix between my main vocal and the rest of the mix (coming out of 1 & 2). When I select ext. out and channels 3 and 4, I notice both a large boost in gain, as well as some almost tape like distortion. I can turn the channel's volume down, but the signal still sounds overloaded, just quieter.
What is strange is that its definitely not any settings on the audio interface, because when I select the master to come out of 3 & 4, there is no change in the sound at all.
There seems to be something going wrong with the ext. out -
I've read the manual and searched the forums but I have not seen this problem mentioned.
Any help would be much appreciated! thanks
