hello one and all.

for my own sake, i'm going to try and keep this as simple as possible. 
i'm trying to multitrack in ardour and i'm having the same trouble i had 
before. here's the scenario.....

test session:

1 mic; two tracks.

audio track 1 (at1): no outputs, 1 input (capture 1).
track is recorded and played back. all is well.

at1 is now disconnected from capture 1, connected to 1 of the outputs.
track 2 (at2) is connected to capture 1 and has no outputs.

the speakers are turned off, the track is recorded and played back.

on at1 i now have what was recorder when it was connected to capture 1 
-> great :-)
on at2 i now have what was recorder on at2 AND at1!!!

this happens every time. i really can't get my head around the idea that 
even though at2 is connected to capture 1, it's also recording 
everything and anything on the output stream. this does not good 
multitracking make.

please, if anyone can tell me what i'm doing wrong, i would be eternally 
greatfull. in the mean time, i'll be going through TFM for the upteenth 

many thanks
