    Yes there are adapters for 3.5mm(1/8") TRS to dual RCA phono plugs (the red and white). I don't own this but I would think the groups of cables would be numbered or labeled in some fashion. I'd connect the output device to the RCA plugs market 1 & 2. The routing for the whole shebang will be found by double clicking the M-Audio icon in the system tray (lower right hand corner of the screen).

    ok thx, but how do i connect it does white go to white red to red? and how do i route it? im getting so confused because i have a spliter connected to the back of the logitech speakers that i can connect rca's to,but can they be any rca's or do they have to be audio rca's or are they all the same? because i found some rca cables and connected them white2white red2red on outs 1 and 2 and still no sound i mean when i play music the volume meter detects it but no sound.maybe my routings are wrong i dont know

    thx for help an sorry
    for the stupid newbie questions.

    Yes, connect white to white and red to red. You can use any pair of them but each one is wired to a different output of the Delta-1010LT as Outputs 1&2, 3&4, etc.

    There are only audio RCA plugs on that device. The two spdif plugs if there are any are just exactly the same but they are connected to digital send/receive so you won't get any speaker stuff out of those. You want a red and white pair of RCA output (gozouta) plugs from the Delta to gozinta the speaker adapter cable.

    S/Pdif RCA plugs are also normally orange colored.
    Yellow RCA plugs are normally digital composite video.
    Red is customarily right side analog audio.
    White is customarily left side analog audio.

    Remember, all wiring breaks down ultimately to gozouta and gozinta. No matter how complex the PA or recording system.

    ok well now i got the speaker stuff down,i think.cuz i could here play back of music,ive got my speakers plugged into 1/2 outs on the delta, and on the patchbay/router i have to select wav out 1/2 to here music playback and thats fine,but now when i plug in my mic i only here it on the left side of my speaker and i have to select {h/w {ins}1/2} in the patchbay/router to hear my voice so how can i make it to where i can hear my voice an the music playback at the same time so i could start my recordings? ughhh this is so confusing thx for your time.

    Ok first the mic question. In your patchbay ASIO GUI (graphical user interface) you have figured out how to select the outputs. You are going to do similar to the microphone input. Currently it is "panned" hard left by default. Find the section where the pan is assigned and change that to <0> as opposed to <-100>. You will also be able to route where the mic channel goes to which could be the Outputs 1/2 or Headphones or whatever options are available.

    ok i got it thx for the help,but i still have a problem with the my vocal on oneside,the way i got my microphone connected is threw a xlr cable, and to the xlr on the delta which comes with two xlr inputs when i switch the xlr to the other one voice is on the left and when i switch to the right its on the right. do i need a xlr splitter or somthing? thxs

    You don't need a splitter. Somewhere in your GUI there is a pan setting and/or a mono 'button'. Right now one of two things is happening. 1) The pan is set to -100 or hard left or 2) The mic channel itself is set to ONLY send to output 1. You need to find these settings.

    &

    These instructions are on Pg 21 of the manual. Take this next statement with good humor.

    RTFM

    I've already given these guidelines once.

    One mic = one channel. If you want two channels recorded then you have to plug in two microphones. Each one will have it's own pan setting.
