First let me tell you what I'm working with: Behringer Xenyx 2442USB mixer, a PC running Windows 10 and recording software Mixcraft Pro Studio 7. Before attempting to use the mixer, I had a Line6 TonePort UX2 interface which I had for a number of years but now showing signs of wear.
I use the Behringer in a PA system so I know how to set it up for live work and thought it would be useful to record with, how hard can it be? Well, I think I've got everything connected correctly but I have no sound showing when the track is armed!
All the physical connections are there, USB, Main Out from the mixer to the PC are Ok,
I've rechecked the mixer recording instructions that I found on the 'Behringer' website, - 2-TR/USB switch to be depressed, I can hear my voice loud and clear through the mixer control panel headphones but no sound shows in the software.
Whilst it receives the signal from the mixer and delivers audio output (Headphones), it fails to pair with the recording software; my first logical thought would be a driver problem, so I downloaded ASIO4ALL v2 from Behringer as recommended.
THE SOFTWARE (Mixcraft)
'Preferences', ('Sound Device' and 'Recording' section), this has three options Core Audio (Wave RT), ASIO and Wave , I was advised by Mixcraft that I need to select the dropdown choice: Microphone (USB Audio CODEC), now that option is available only with Core Audio (Wave RT) and Wave, I have carried out so many different permutations in 'Preferences' as well as the 'Arm Recording Channel' and now confusion reigns Ok!
And I still can't get any movement on the 'Armed Track Sound Indicator'!!
Sorry, but I'm a total layman when it comes to (recording technology), so my terminology may well fall short of what I trying to explain, but I am trying to learn more about home recording (I have ordered a copy of 'Home Recording for Dummies'), but it's not easy for a non technical person to take on board all the jargon.
I think you are my last hope!
