my brother bought a prosound 1000 power amplifier off a friend with a numark mixer (has a usb cable). i'm wondering if this would be any use for recording? could i plug an instrument into the line in then connect the mixer to my mac and record? im not sure what the power amplifier does but it has 2 XLR inputs, 2 1/4 inch input jacks, 2 XLR outputs (they are compatible with 1/4 inch jacks) and a bridge (dunno what that is)

would this be any use for recording or would i still have to buy and audio interface? i'm pretty confused so any help would be cool

if the mixer has a USB out, it should be fine...
But i wouldn't think that the mixer could do simultaneous recording, i think it'll mix it down to stereo and then send it...

But why not just plug straight into the mixer?

Toodles!

thanks. yeah the mixer is numark omni control.

apparently it has a built in interface, would it work with a mac? can i record instruments from there?

it only has a 1/4 jack input and no XLR inputs but the power amp does. could i hook the power amp up to use mics?

I may be wrong, but I thought the only thing you should connect power amps to are speakers? Surely if you ran a power amp in to an interface or a mixer it would damage it? I wouldn't do it till you get some certain advice anyway.
