Can you put this Mackie PROFX8V2 first in the chain with microphone attached and connect to a Audient iD14 inputs, then pass Audient on to USB connected to the computer?
Asked by: Bob
Yes, although you really don't need to. If you are connecting the Mackie to the iD14 you are going to pass a simple L/R mix, there is no way to send track individually. The Mackie has a built in USB interface that will do the same thing.

Are you able to do a traditional mix minus with this, and if so, how? I can't find anything online unless it's through the USB.
Asked by: Johnathon
No, this mixer does not have a mix-minus feature. You will want to use a JK Audio CellTap for cell phones. The Rode RodeCaster Pro does have mix-minus built in: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1445257-REG/rode_rcp_rodecaster_pro_integrated_podcast.html

Does it work with apple logic?

Does it work with apple logic?
Asked by: Anonymous
This does work with Logic. The caveat is that the mixer only presents the main mix (L/R) through the USB port, not individual channels. Likewise, USB output from Logic to the mixer goes directly into the main mix, with a pot to control the level.
