    Hi Milos,

    Do you need 16 channels of the Aurora 16?
    What interface are you using?

    I would think a couple of patchbays would help. Do you have cables that connect to the DB25 connectors? What's at the other end of those?

    Well, i have Pro Tools HD card installed on my computer, also have LT HD card on my Aurora 16. Then, i have a Focusrite Isa Two and Adam A8x speakers. So, i need an explanation how to connect all of that.
    Anyway, i will never record more than two channels (instruments, voices etc.) in the same time. So, what do you think?

    You need properly wired DB25 cables.

    Focusrite outputs to Aurora inputs, Aurora outputs to Adam speakers.

    Exactly as bouldersound said. You need to "proper cable recommended by Lynx Aurora 16. But it also sounds like you don't need the 16 channels. Only get enough for the 8 in/outs.

    You need:
    • 2 balanced mic cables for microphones ins to the Focusrite .
    • one 8 channel analog DB25 with XLR female ends (1- 8 analog ins)
    • one 8 channel analog DB25 with XLR male end to connect to your monitors (1-8 analog outs)
    • one AD AES Yamaha 8 channel to connect Aurora to Pro Tools HD card installed on the computer (channels 1-8)
    • one AES DA Yamaha 8 channel to Pro Tools HD card installed on the computer to connect Aurora 16 to your monitors (1-8) (this is you DAW monitor out)
    Then hook up your in's and out's and you are good to go. Its very simple.

    Actually, my recommendation might not be exactly correct either. I recommend contacting Lynx as they will tell you exactly what you need. I don't use Pro Tools or Lynx products. But be clear in telling them that you only need 8 channels or less. Don't waste money for channels 9-16.
