Howdy.  I'm not a total newbie when it comes to using mixers, at least I've 
owned a few over the years and have been using hardware any way for a long 
time now.  That said, Ardour is making me feel dumb (well, dumber than 

I seem to be ending up with trouble when I attempt to play back while 
recording  - basically I have a routing problem where the master channel is 
ending up mixed in with the recording inputs when it seems like it should be 

I'm using an M-Audio Audiophile 24/96 so I have 2 analog ins and 2 analog outs 
plus the digital mixer on the card. 

First, I add some new tracks.  I then select a track, click the input box and 
choose "in 1+2" and record a track.

Next, I deselect the input on the track, choose the output box and then assign 
it to the master out.  I then choose the second track and select the input to 
be in "in 1+2 and " and record a new take.  

When I do the above I end up with some of track one bleeding through into 
track 2 (same with all tracks after that).

So obviously something is connecting the master out back to audio ins but I am 
not clear how to sort that issue out with Ardour (envy24control / Alsa adding 
a wack of nonexistant pseudo outs for the card doesn't help either).  

Any suggestions here appreciated.
