Hello, I'm pretty new to computer-based recording.  I've got a keyboard rig going into a Yamaha MG12XU USB-capable mixer, and was wondering, can I connect the mixer's audio outputs to the Audiobox's instrument inputs for recording, while still using the USB connectivity for playback from the laptop to the mixer?  Not sure if this is potentially destructive, might cause a harmful loop, or is even technically feasible.  Any feedback greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Hi I do struggle with the same problem...

I have setup several songs with finished backing tracks, and now need to do some vokal recording. But when recording I can't seperate the backing from the Microphone vokal input???

Also I feel - when doing a separate vokal recording - that the level is very week, even it goes 100 % from the Yamaha MG12XU USB cable connected mixer.

Another observation are, that the in the >option< >Audio device< - There are only one "Audio Device" and NOT as shown in the StudioOne 5 manual, a Playback Device and a Recording Device???

My question an need for assistance are therefore:

Have anybody got the Yamaha MG12XU USB mixer to work properly with the Persons StudioOne 5?

If you have... HOW?
