    I have an M-Box and a Behringer 1202 Mixer. What would be the best way to connect these two together to get better quality for my home studio?

    What do you use the mixer for?
  3. hey I've got a similar mixer and heres what I do: I run all of my mics into the mixer and then run the main output into the 2 mbox XLR inputs (both of the main outputs on my mixer which is a UB1204 are xlr but if the UB1202's outputs are TRS then you can run a TRS cable). Then I just run my monitors out of the mbox output (m-audio studiophile DX4s). But I think if your mixer has an alt 3-4 output that theres a better way to do it. you run a line from the alt 3-4 outputs into the mbox inputs. you then run the mbox outputs into a stereo channel on the mixer and you run your onitors out of the control room output on your mixer. I think when you record youll have to press a button that sends the signal out of the alt 3-4 outputs (it's also the mute button on my mixer) and if the UB1202 has a section called "Source" which is right about the alt 3-4 master faders you'll have to press the alt 3-4 button down. I've never done this myself but I've heard and seen other people doing it so I think it will work and might sound better than the first option listed.
