Question Balance - direct monitoring outside of Reason?

Hi all,
I got my balance today and have been fiddling around with it trying to work it all out and one thing in particular I have not worked out is if it is possible to directly monitor the inputs whilst NOT in Reason (so for use with other non-ASIO/WDM programs and windows itself)?

Also there seems to be no sort of user manual with Balance at all - just the quick start. And searching around I can only find a basic faq. Is there a more complete set of documentation somewhere?

Here’s the Balance Operation Manual .pdf file that comes on the Essentials DVD. I saved it on my Dropbox awhile back and it comes in handy: . I run my computer sound through my E-MU 0404 soundcard and haven’t tried using Balance for CD drives, the Internet, etc.; my Balance is exclusively for Reason but I can run Reason through the 0404 soundcard as well by changing the Edit > Preferences > Audio back-and-forth from ASIO Balance to ASIO E-MU 0404.

And be sure and take care of the drivers’ business if needed: . And welcome to the forums.

Hold down the "MUTE/DIRECT MONITORING" button until the white light goes on. You will then live monitor whatever inputs you have selected.
I've decided to get serious about my music again at last.
So go ahead... ask me how my new album is coming!
