Confused by signal routing issue... recording to ACID on PC

How do I setup so that when I playback a recorded track from my PC soundcard line out to the tape in on my mixer (in order to hear the track through the PA), and record another track at the same time, I don't get the playback track mixed into the track I am recording? Do I need a separate mixer for input and output?

Does that make sense? I have a feeling I am missing something simple here. I used to own a cassette 4 track and thought I could figure this one out with ease, but the PC and mixer setup is stumping me.

Thanks 'yall!

pc out is probably 1/8" jack...use 1/8 inch out to 1/4" in on mixer...but dont use tape in on mixer use a stereo input route that to one of your busses out 1,2,3, or 4...plug your guitar or whatever instrument you are using into another channel and route that to the same bus. send the bus signal out to the card in...hope this helped...tom p
