Mixer > Delta 44 > seperate tracks in Adobe Audition???

I need some instruction on how to record multiple tracks with my setup.

I have a delta 44 sound card and I have a behringer ub1204 mixer that has 8 inputs.

I am able to record 8 tracks simultanously but how do I seperate those tracks onto Adobe Audition? I realize that since I only have 4 inputs on the Delta that at most I can only record on 4 different tracks (in AA), but I can't figure out how to do that either.

So to sum up everything:

I am able to record 8 tracks at one time, but how do I assign some of those tracks (i.e. just the bass drum) to go on a seperate track in Adobe Audition?

Thanks in advance for your help

If i'm correct, the point of a mixer is to mix down all the signals into 1 output, which would mean you can no longer seperate the tracks in Audition. the Delta 44 has 4 Inputs, so maybe you should just run the drums through the mixer (And mix them down to 1, then you have 3 more spots for Guitar, bass, and another guitar.

Just an idea? I'm no pro

Do you know how to assign the delta inputs to record on seperate tracks in AA?

For Example: Delta input 1 > Track 1 in Adobe
Delta input 2 > Track 2 in Adobe
Delta input 3 > Track 3 in Adobe

Is that a setting in the Delta control panel or in Adobe Audition. Or maybe it is in both??

Thanks for the help.

In the delta control panel (using asio drivers) there is a screen that shows which inputs should be live during recording. That would need to have the two pairs (four inputs) active to accept signal. I can't remember exactly what screen it is though. I haven't used AA so I'm not sure there.

As far as mixer to sound card, why not use the channel inserts (first click) to get each signal to the sound card as individual tracks. You could mix the drums together and send them out the sub outs, but use guitar and bass as their own channel in the soundcard (drums would be using two channels, stereo, I would think).

helo ... i'm new here..

i have the same set up just like yours..

delta 44 and UB1204 Pro

you can only plugged 4 seperate tracks using UB1204

use a RCA cable , plug it into the TAPE OUT of your mixer to your Delta 44 INPUTS 1/2 ...
now you got 1 stereo track or 2 independent track ( panned hard on your mixer LEFT or RIGHT)

then attach another rca cable or jack on your ALT 3-4 output to your Delta 44 INPUTS 3/4

now you got 2 stereo track or 4 seperate(independent) track

From your adobe audition , just assign all the inputs... you can record 4 tracks simulteanously ( in mono)

Adobe Audition, there is a button in the multitrack that lets you select your input option for each track. Choose Delta 1/2 or Delta 3/4 and then select right, left or stereo. For 4 seperate tracks, in track 1, select Delta 1/2 and then click the box that says left. In track 2 select Delta 1/2 and click the box that says right. Do the same for tracks 3 and 4 but select Delta 3/4 instead of Delta 1/2. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with your mixer, so don't know how to set that up to get 4 distinct signals to the Delta.
