Hey guys, so I've been doing this about 5 months and am still trying to learn the basics. I recently bought a Yamaha MG124CX to familiarize myself with mixers and to do some small home recordings. Getting signal to the speakers is no problem. Its when I try to get the signal to my computer that gives me trouble. I'll describe my signal flow to get everyone up to speed. From my mixer, I come out of the ''Monitor Out L/R'' and into the 1/2 L/R on my ''Steinberg CI 1'' audio interface. I then come out of the CI 1 USB port and into my Mac USB Port. Question #1: Should I be using TRS 1/4'' to come out of the mixer or are mono 1/4'' cables sufficient? I know the signal is getting to the interface because the peak lights illuminate when the level is too much. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong or what I've not done to get the signal into the computer. Question #2: Should I be using a different option to come out of the mixer such as ''2TR Out'' or ''Rec Out'' which are both RCA jacks. Question #3: Should I have bought a different interface? Hope to hear from everyone soon!!!
