    Question about XENYX Q1202USB

    Hi, Can someone please give me some advice on how to overdub recording with this mixer? Can it be done with this USB mixer? I have one track recorded. How can I record onto track 2 while hearing my guitar & track 1 playing while I'm recording onto track 2? Pretty new at this obviously. Thanks for your help...Mike

    Hi Mike,

    You really need a mixer like the Q1204USB, because it allows you to directly monitor the new track that you are laying down.
    This method prevents any kind of latency from happening.

    I just bought the same mixer and spent days trying to solve this problem... I didn't know that you can't do this directly through the mixer, but I was beginning to guess it. So I started to look for a software solution in both Audacity and Ardour (on Linux), but latency is obviously a huge issue.
    So, after days of messing around with this I just found a workaround. I don't know if you're still dealing with this problem, but maybe this is going to help somebody else, too. I'm now using two pairs of earphones: a regular pair on top of an in-ear pair. I'm playing the previously recorded tracks through the computer output, then I can listen to the live mic through the mixer.
    Cheers, Tanja

    Dear all,

    with both mixers you can record while listening to the playback from your DAW. Please follow these steps:

    - in terms of latency on windows computers you should download our ASIO driver from our webpage:
    - Audacity on windows will always cause too much latency as it is not able to use the ASIO driver.
    - To record parallel to your playback you should press the "USB/2Track to CTRL ROOM" button. So the input signal will be routed through the DAW and can be heard together with the playback from your DAW.
