    Hey so i am makin a home recording studio. Its gonna be recorded onto a Mac G5 threw a Firewire or USB mixer. But since i need 8 XLR inputs on my mixer i had a question. I already have a powedmixer that i can plug my drum mics into. Can i take a 1/4 Main Output from the powered mixer and instead buy like a 8 channel mixer? or will the signal come in to hot?

    What type of main out put is this ? If its for speakers it wont work, it will be too hot, what you need is a line level signal out of your DRUM board, into your line ins oin the USB interface, That should do the trick

    ok well on the powered mixer there are 4 speaker outs that im NOT using. There is also a Main out and a Mon out and a Effects out. Should i just use the main out straight into the USB interface or do i need a line level just to make sure?
