I have recently purchased a Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer. It is a analog mixer that uses RCA to 3.5mm connections to my iMac's line in port.

I am using logic to record single tracks at a time, but I would like to record multiple tracks at once. For instance, Guitar and Bass.

When I make two audio tracks and select input one, and input for each of the tracks, both instruments play on both tracks at the same time.

I am wondering if it is possible to assign each instrument to its own corresponding track.

You need a line per channel. You have 2 lines, so you can only record two channels at a time through the mixer. You would need to assign them to the left and right channels of your output respectively by using the pan knobs.

  • Hmmm... that sounds like it would work but how would i get the channels into my computer since it only has one line input Oct 16, 2014 at 22:49
  • Would i need a audio interface? Oct 16, 2014 at 22:50

    If you have a stereo line input, you could use that. The best quality would be to get an ASIO interface, but you should probably be able to get stereo input through a line input if you have that.
