Default How do you guys do monitoring?

I have an Mbox mini with the "zero latency" mix knob thingie. Problem is, enabling record causes the dreaded software monitoring giving me the delayed signal as well. Turning down the mixer fader to zero eliminates this, however I need to hear the track when punching in. Is there any way to set Protools to disable it's internal record monitoring? Thanks and sorry for the dumb question.

Do you have plugins loaded/enabled on the tracks you're recording against??
What system are you running? OS? What's your H/W Buffer Size??

As long as you haven't done all your editing and dialed in all your plugins for the other tracks, the best thing is to try lowering the Hardware buffer size(obvious).

Need more information.

Mute the track you're recording to. Or, if you need to hear the track you're recording to before the start of the punch, route it to a bus and automate a mute on the bus that starts at the punch-in point (since you can't use automation on a track in record mode).

another option is to set up a second track to do your punch ins. on the original track select the area of audio you want to punch and hit delete. you can leave your original track unmuted, so you hear your audio up to the punch point. mute the second track and monitor from the hardware. when you are done punching, just drag and drop the punched regions onto the original track.


this takes only slightly more time than it would to set your punch IO points on a single track.

In prefs there is the choise to "link record and playback fader levels" (or something to that effect) - uncheck this box. Now set the recording tracks fader to -inf when record enabled and to desired level when not rec enabled. When you punc in, the fader will automatically drop to -inf.

I still think my reply adresses his issue. He needs to hear the track UP to punch in point and not thereafter.

Yes this does indeed address the problem I was having. Thanks so much for the work-around. And thanks for the replies. I am now considering an MBox2 Pro since it has "low latency" monitoring. In the mean time, this will do.

Well................this does not work either! Yes you can set a seperate level for record enabled tracks, however you have to be record enabled to punch in on the track in the first place. Therefore I still can't hear the track up to the punch in point. Dang...........
Any other suggestions? Am I missing something? Thanks,

Be shure to be in "auto input monitoring" mode ("Operations" menu, I think).
