Change Headphones Monitor to AFL but not require Mains to be On?
(Also sent an email to Harman tech support, but haven't heard back yet)
With the COVID world, our church is now recording thru the mixer/console (Soundcraft Si Performer 1) and that's working great.
However, to get a good mix in the recording we need to use headphones to hear what it'll sound like, but when turning Mains "off" the monitor cuts out, too, and the speakers are providing an unwanted reverb/feedback in the recording. We can cut the mains easy enough during speaking parts, but during music it's ideal to listen while recording for ad hoc balancing, so....
Is there a way to change the headphone monitor mix to still work AFL but keep the Main off?
(yes, we could turn off the amp to the speakers or disconnect outs, but seems silly/unnecessary)
