Next weekend my band wants to do some rough recordings of our songs so we can start pre-production on them. Of course drums will be first, and to a click but I have some questions about recording them into my mbox2. We have a 6 channel mixer ( 4 xlr inputs) to record the drums into one of the mbox inputs. I just have a few questions about using the mixer into it. We have a bass drum mic, sm57 for the snare, and for overheads since we don't have overheads or room mics we have 2 sm58's, or one nady condenser microphone. I wanted to get an opinion on which to use. I know it's not gonna sound that great but these are for rough recordings to lay our song out. When I plug all this up to the mixer, should I keep the mixer masters down and turn up the mbox preamp, or vice versa? Also I can use the Left OR Right output of the mixer to the mbox I dont need both correct? One more question, for vocals I have a lexicon rack unit with reverbs, choruses, and delays. I want to record vocals on 2 tracks, one dry, and one with the lexicon. (in case the lexicon track isnt how i want in the end). The lexicon has 1/4" inputs and outputs. Where would I set this up in my chain? I would have to use the mixer even for just one vocal mic to use the Aux is this right?
