I can send audio from mixer to macbook audition to record - simple.
Sending audio from macbook to mixer (using Itunes or radio dj software) - can't figure it out!!
Pressing the red 2-TR/USB sends the audio straight to the main mix is no use - i need to be able to send audio via a channel.
1: see pic - I'm trying to allocate the audio which is coming from the radio playout system (carts) into different channels (7 & 8) - however, this is not working - is this even possible?
2: I'm trying to take audio that is going into the 2-TR and using the 2-TR OUTPUT (L & R) - patch into a different channel (using twin phono to jack leads) - this is also not working.
I know that the audio is reaching the mixer - because I can hear it when i select 2-TR/USB to Main - however, that sends the audio straight to main mix - when I need it to go into one of the channels so I can control the level against a microphone level.
Welcome to the forum. I had a look at that model and it looks as though the USB in can only go directly to the main L/R and the headphones. The only other alternative is to connect the speaker out of the Mac to one of the stereo line ins. But that is probably not what you want to do.
Thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately - I just got this x1622 so won't be looking to change anytime soon.
I tried taking the audio from the 2-TR OUTPUT using twin phono to jack leads and plugging into one of the channels thinking that the output from the 2-TR OUTPUT would contain the audio - but that doesn't seem to work either?
At first I thought, that should work. Then I realized that the 2-TR output is tied to the Main L/R (post fader). So you would have to push the 2-TR/USB to Main button down to get the signal to the 2-TR output. But that would defeat the purpose of gaining volume control. As I mentioned, the only other alternative is to connect the line or speaker output of the soundcard in the Mac to one of the stereo inputs of the X1622.
