I’m confused

Alesis MultiMix 4 USB FX can't monitor system audio without outputting it?

I just recently purchased a MutliMix 4 USB FX and am wondering if it's possible to use the Phones port to listen to the audio of my computer while monitoring the output of the device without it being recorded

An example would be listening to a song while using the mixer to record speech. The only way I can continue to listen to the song is by pressing the "EXT/USB TO MAIN" toggle, but this means that on a recording, the song is present.


Audio example can be given upon request.
