I have a Mackie 1202-VLZ3 12 channel mixer, with an AKG Perception 200 (discontinued) condensor mic, and I want to route that to my computer's audio hardware (Creative X-Fi Elite Pro) so I can do recording with Cubase 5. I know almost nothing about mixers and how to get them setup. It took me forever to figure out why my level LED's wouldn't light up when I tested the mic, even tho I could hear sound and the signal was obviously getting to my computer. First thing I would like to know is: How do I connect my Mackie to my computer's audio console? Like, which ports on the Mackie should I be coming from and what kind of cords should I be using?
