Xenyx: can I use an "insert" channel as a direct out, in order to send the signal to other devices and the main send simultaneously?

The Xenyx inserts are not designed for this purpose. Making a 1/4" jack connection will mute direct input from being bussed to the main mix output. This means that the signal is diverted to the insert, ready for it to be fed back into the return or a different channel. Why? This means that the original signal is not ‘summed’ together with the returned signal. In short, the insert ports do not function as a duplicator for the signal being bussed to the main outputs.
