I am trying ot get our church in the technology age.  I am getting them setup to do facebook live, however the sound is very faint coming from the main out put on the StudioLive 24.4.2.  I am wondering if there is a better way to hook up my aux cable to the sound board to get better sound?  I am getting ready to update firmware it is out of date, i am running an aux cable from the main out on the sound board to an Alienware computer with Windows 10, while using a Razer Ripsaw to capture video from our camera.  The sound is there it is just very faint and hard to hear.  Was just looking for other ways to get the best sound out of it.

Well there are a number of options.

You can use the CR out if your not using it for monitors at the sound booth. It has its own volume control.

You can use the mono or stereo outputs on the back of the mixer they each have a small knob to control output independently. The knobs are right next to the main and mono out jacks on the back of the mixer.  So if your using stereo R-L to front of house you can use the mono output the recorder or vice versa. If a mono signal will work for you on one or the other.

My favorite is to use an aux out channel (mono) or a pair of aux channels (stereo) if available. This allows you to actually mix the signals going to the recorder separate from the front of house mix. Sometimes the front of house mix isn't so good on the recording. This will give you a separate mix, EQ, and overall volume control for your recording. You can even monitor the recording with headphones and use Qmix on an Ipod or Ipad to mix your recording.

If none of these are an option you may be able to use a subgroup and control volume that way.
