Hi! I'm just getting started with recording and I got confused a little bit. I have: laptop Toshiba Satellite A500-1C0 midi controller M-Audio Axiom 49 mixer Mackie Profx12 phones Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro usb interface Line6 UX-1 I use: Cubase 5 gearbox Before I used FL Studio and Adobe Audition. I'm guitarist and everything was quite easy. Just plug-in guitar->line6 ux1->laptop launch gearbox and I could record in AA. Now I'd like to move forward to Cubase and here starts my problem. Is it possible to connect mixer via line6 ux1 and make it works or I need better interface usb? I can't directly connect mixer to laptop because my sound card doesn't use ASIO. I successfully set up my midi controller, but I messed up with line6 so I would be glad if someone could describe me how to do it. What microphone would you recommend for recording guitar? What about Shure SM47? What am I missing in my setup? Do I need preamp if i have phantom power in my mixer? thx for help!
