I recently got a 1202-VLZ. I'm using the INSERTs to send signals to my soundcard.
Mackie uses this "first-click"/ "second click" design. I've got my cables (Neutrik connectors) plugged "first-click" (which does not interrupt the signal to the MAIN OUT). The problem is that the connection is loose and the cable moves around a bit, causing me to occasionally lose the signal to the soundcard.
An alternative would be to use the "second click" (which interrupts the signal to MAIN OUT) and monitor via software but I would prefer not to.
Another alternative is to use the AUX sends. There are two and they are mono. AUX1 is pre-gain and AUX2 is post-gain, so if I'm doing anything in stereo I'll have problems. And if I need more than 2 I'll be out of luck.
Anyone have the same problem and/or have a solution?
