Scott, I think you missed the point. There is no input from the rig 
microphone to the soundcard INPUT to record using your rig microphone. This 
is a limitation of rigblaster. About the only way you can record with your 
rig mic is to record your monitor output. You need to turn all processing 
off when you do this or the results will still sound quite different, 
depending on how much processing you use. If you are heavily processed then 
the rigblaster transmitt audio will process again and it will sound like crap.

That is why I haven't bought a rigblaster. Still looking for an interface 
that will "do it all". Does anyone have any suggestions?
