SubPac + Sonarworks Headphone Calibration + Headphone Amp/Headphones

Okay so this is my setup:

I have Ableton running into my SubPac via Bluetooth. Out of the headphone jack on my SubPac I have a cable running into my 02+Odac headphone amp Input, and then I have my headphones in the output so I can control the volume of my headphones without effecting the SubPac.

The problem I have is when I use Sonarworks Headphone Calibration plugin on my master channel in Ableton, it effects my SubPac too!

How can I set this up so I can use everything without Sonarworks effecting the SubPac?!

Thanks!

sounds like your relying way way to much on the toys (sub pac is a toy lets get are facts straight here)
then your own two ears

Don't know how a subpac interfaces with software (or how sonarworks... works for that matter), could you just unplug it during the calibration and then plug it in when done so that sonarworks doesn't see it as a device to work with?

Facts? Lots of people swear by subpac. I've not tried one but people I trust love it.

Thanks!

use an aux send to feed your sub pac via a separate output.

this is how a LOT of live sound engineers feed their sub outputs (when given the freedom to do so). it wont be "flat" for mixing, but it sounds like a lot of fun.
