Using ASIO for the Input and MME/DirectX for the Output in Ableton Live Lite 9

Unable to Monitor ASIO from my M-Track using my MME/DirectX Headphones

So I have the M-Audio M-Track which came with Ableton Live Lite so that was good.  I went to the M-Audio website and snapped up their ASIO drivers since I found out the plug and play ones are just DirectX/MME and have unusable latency problems.

After installing the new ASIO drivers I restarted Ableton and there it was under ASIO, my dual channel recording box was now showing up..

Choosing this, I now see volume shifts when I select IN as the monitoring option fo the track I wish to record my guitar into however... I am not able to hear anything coming through my hedset.

The headset I am using is a Plantronics Rig 2 and it is connected via USB and runs hrough the normal Audio Sound Card on the computer.

 

Not that it should matter but :

Windows 8.1 64bit

Ableton Live Lite 9

M-Audio  M-Track

 

So I suspect the problem here is that Ableton is only letting me choose a single Audio Device from the list and that device is being used for both Input and Output O.o

Is there a way to select my ASIO device for the Input and my MME/DirectX Headphones for the Output so I can actually listen to the music I am working on and also preview my guitar parts before I record them?

    I have the same problem - this issue has been posted by multiple people but I've yet to find any answer. Is there a way round this or is the only solution to monitor via the ASIO audio interface?

    I didn't have the same problem, but VoiceMeeter might be useful for you, too.

    http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/Voicemeeter/index.htm

    There you can have different devices as input and output. In Ableton Live you select VoiceMeeter as your audio device.

    After installing Voicemeeter I made sure in the windows settings that my soundcard is still default for input and output, so that other software would work as before.
