Hi, Stupid question maybe, but I'd appreciate some help nonetheless. I have a mackie 1202 vlz pro and was tracking drums, 4 mics going in to my 4 mono channels. When I was sending the outs to my soundcard, I was experiencing several problems. Firstly, am i able to send the outs 1-4, from the corresponding channels by using the 4 channel insert ports on the backs of the mixer, or is that only for hooking up external compressors etc? What I ended up doing was using my alt 3-4 outs for channels 1 and 2 (panning ch. 1 hard left and ch. 2 hard right to get isolated mono signals.), and then uisng my aux send outs 1 & 2 respectively for the outs of channels 3 and 4, once again panning hard left and right to isolate the mono channels. I know that this worked, i'm just wondering if there's a more straight forward approach to doing this. i know that there is a limited # of outs on the mixer....it just seems to me like there should be an easier approach. thanks.
