Can I use the UMC404HD as a passthrough

I need to passthrough 3 mics into the UMC404HD and then into my Behringer Mixer for live performance.

I don't know the right way to connect my UMC404HD so that I can record the individual 3 mics and then pass into my Behringer X1204USB for a live performance.

Can someone help me with this please?

The playback outputs don't output anything and I'm thinking the Inserts are for input not output.

Thanks,

Hi Clifford,

Welcome to the forums. Yes, this can be done with the inserts plus a Y-cable for each insert.

An insert has both a send and return path. It uses a TRS plug on the UMC end to a pair of TS plugs on the other end. One TS plug is for send and the other is for return. See this link for a cable suggestion: http://hosatech.com/product/stp-200/.

The tricky part is that the insert cable breaks the channel path (i.e. inserts) before the signal is sent to the USB so you somehow have to get the signal over to your board and also back to the return side of the insert. This Y-cable will do that: http://hosatech.com/product/ypp-111/.

So, what you do is plug the TRS end of the insert cable into the UMC, plug both TS plugs into the Y-cable, and finally, plug the other end of the Y-cable into your board.

Note that the insert and Y-cables are unbalanced so you'll want to keep them as short as possible to reduce interference.

A bit more elegant solution is to use 3x of these: http://artproaudio.com/isolators/product/splitcompro/

Let me know what questions you have.
