Huh? I am using a SBLive Value and REALLY have no idea what you are
talking about. There aren't 2 mixers as far as I can tell, Setting the
record volume down to zero does just what one would logically expect,
makes a inaudable recording. The fact that he can hear the signal fine
implies that the cable is OK. If there is another mixer I'd like to know
about it, There are no HW controls (knobs or the like) at all on a SBLive
Value. I've had problems getting the right volume too (it's not obvious
where unity gain is) and am trying to be helpful with what works for me.
However it quite like you know something we don't... but somethings being
lost somewhere in the explaination.
