I decided to upgrade my set-up...
What I currently was using: a Avid Fast Track Solo interface

What I just acquired: a Behringer Xenyx X1222usb mixer

Being a rapper I deal with a lot of vocal recording.
I bought this mixer in hopes to record & "mix" my vocals effectively with beats/instrumentals.
Unfortunately, we all know that most equipment will require some tech knowledge to use.
Nothing is truly "plug-n-play" out of packaging so...now I am completely lost!:cry:


Whenever I start a Pro Tools session the mixer's functions are inoperable with the DAW.
I can hear my mic & audio can be also be heard using headphones but I can't hear anything thru my studio monitors.
What cables do I need? What inputs/outputs should be plugged?


I don't know how to map the functions of the mixer to communicate with Pro Tools.
I want to be able to assign certain knobs & sliders to different plug-ins & tracks within the DAW.
Can someone please break this down to me?


I guess what I should be asking for starters is...:hmmm:
Did I purchased the right equipment for my needs?
Was I better off with just using the Fast Track Solo?
Thanks in advance.
