Hello, again. I just want to know if I set up my mixer for a live show, can I use the inserts on the channels to send into a recording interface for multi-track recording into my computer? Thanks.

Oct 06, 2011 10:51 am I am forgetting the order of the connections, but I believe if you push a cable into the insert only to the first "click" it'll be a send.
Inserts are three connection, TRS, meaning tip, ring and sleeve...if you push it in to only connect to the tip, you're golden...
