I have been using/playing around with the Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer for patching my PC audio, PS4 audio, and XLR microphone to various places. Mainly into the PC to stream to Twitch, and from the PC into my Astro A50s.
I would like to patch my PC into the mixer to make use of the analog volume knobs to use. The problem is when connecting my PC to the mixer, using a 1/8" (3.5mm) to 1/4" cable (or 1/8" to dual 1/4"), the audio sounds very messed up. It's hard to explain how it sounds.. Maybe like if you have your ear buds only plugged half way into your phone? You get sound, but it's not full and seems to be lacking certain parts.
Is there something I need to do to get this to sound right? This is my motherboard with onboard sound card. I am thinking of getting an external sound card anyways so I have more inputs/outputs, would that help at all?
