FDP Forum / Home Recording Forum / question re low priced table top mixer multitracking.

I have a Behringer 1202 USB. My basic setup is straightforward

condenser mic to line 1 input.
Mixer USB out to Mac input
Choose vocal mic and record acoustic guitar into Track 1.
I monitor the whole thing with the headphone line on the mixer

so far so good.

problem is now I want to add some licks and fills on track 2 while monitoring track 1.

I appears the Behringer, like many low priced mixers, only allow the USB signal to go one way. So I can't listen to the prerecorded backing track while I overdub on track 2.

I want lay down bass tracks and even some keyboards. So I need to be able to listen to multi tracks while I record.

Any suggestions for a workaround?

set the output to your mac audio system and monitor on headphones or connected speakers ?

otherwise a proper interface would be better.

If irritation occurs

discontinue use.

I'm not familiar with the Behringer mixer, but this may be a simple workaround:

You have acoustic guitar on channel 1. Set that to playback, and set it up to send it to channel 3.

Plug your electric guitar into channel 2, set channel 2 to record, and set it up to send it to channel 3.

Monitor channel 3 on headphones as you record on channel 2; you should hear channels 1 and 2.

What this does is create a 'scratch pad' on channel 3. It preserves channel 1 and records a duplicate to channel 3, and you monitor channels 1 and 2 through channel 3.
