When I record through a direct-in mic to a channel it works fine (as it should). The wav singles show up as I'm recording (as they should). I put reverb into an insert and the voice sounds reverby (as it should).
When my drum loop starts (in another channel) the recorded voice cuts out - and the voice channel starts playing drum loop! Crazy, I know! The other channels are muted, so the drum loop sound is definitely coming out of my voice channel. The wav forms still correspond with my original voice recording but I stop hearing the voice once the drums start. Even more crazy is that the reverb I inserted affects the drum sound that I'm hearing.
In short, my vocal recording gets hijacked and taken over - invisibly - by a drum loop from a different channel. Needless to say, I'm looking for answers.
I'll attach a picture, so that you can see what I'm dealing with, and please feel free to ask me any questions, I'm here to try out different ideas and options.
