Does your sound card have audio I/O?

I am not sure how it works with old Mixers, but with mine...I believe it came with a driver disk. I am not 100% sure. If it didn't, then the OS automatically found the software and requested a driver.

I am not at home, or else I could help more.

The sound card I use is a Audiophile 2496. you wont have any problems with sound. with a proper mixer, it sounds amazing.

To set a mixing desk up like that you would need inserts on each channel, the more useful way to hook it up is to have the desks subouts hooked in to the inputs of your sound device, then route whatever channel you want to the subouts, so any channel and be any input...
