I was wondering if I could use my PA mixer as a regular mixer. I was wondering if I could plug it in to my computer via 1/4 inch jack. On the back of it it has two 5 ohm speaker outs, an effects loop and the power cable. Could I use the speaker outs to my USB guitar jack dealy or if it would ruin the mixer.
well, really depends on what type of PA block it is. on some mackie boards ive used they had 1/4 inch line outs that you chould get a 1/4 to 1/8 adaptor and use to plug in to the computer. need more info on the PA to be sure though.
what's the make and model of the mixer?
it's a Hollinger 4 channel mixer. I'm just wondering if I'd brake it feeding one of the speaker outs to my computer.
do NOT go from a speaker out into your computer. bad things will happen. try using your effects send if you want a line out to your computer.
