UM2 and mixer?

Good day. I recently bought a UM2 audio interface. It works great with a mic and instruments. Is it possible to connect a mixer to the UM2? I have a Hybrid MC20USB mixer and was wondering if I can use my instruments through the mixer and then connect the mixer to the UM2 for recording a whole band?

Re: UM2 and mixer?

Not sure that the USB part of a Hybrid mixer is really a USB audio interface. It may just provide MP3 playback from a USB stick. However to connect your mixer into your PC you could use a Behringer UMC202 USB interface rather than the UM2.

Why do you want to feed the mixer into the UM2 when it already has integrated USB to record the mixer output on a computer? Anyway the UM2 has two non identical inputs so you can't really feed a stereo line out feed from a mixer into it.

Hi. Thanks for your reply. I can't find drivers for the mixer and at this stage it doesn't work with my laptop without drivers, but I'll just have to keep looking. 🙂

The USB seems to be an input port only. I can play music from my pc through the mixer via USB. Thanks. I'll try to get hold of a UMC202.
