    I read your answer to “brtaln1” and found it both interesting and helpful.
    I have just purchased a Rode NT1 and a Spirit folio notepad mixer.
    This is how I intend to hook all my gear up.

    POD. ----------------
    ZOOM 234 ---------- MIXER ------SOUNDCARD.
    RODE NT1 --------

    Does that look right to you ? I also use Pro Audio 9, with a SB Live card.
    99.9% of what I do is in audio.
    Let me know what you think.
    Thank you in advance.

    Thumbs up

    Looks good..... Try not to use the EQ section much since Cakewalk has EQ built-in.
    I only use the board EQ to correct major problems before going to the hard drive.
    I recommend the Cakewalk FX1, 2, & 3 plug-ins. Mostly FX1. You'll use it a lot.

    How do you plan to monitor your projects as you record over prerecorded tracks?
    Example: You have most of the music down and you're ready to record vocals.
    Do you have a plan on how you want to send the vocals to the sound card without
    sending the prerecorded music? This is an area I have played around with quite a bit.
    It's real important to send only the desired signal to the sound card input.
    I use my auxiliary sends for this. Another important thing is to send the
    signal to the card at the optimum level. My board allows me to monitor the levels
    of my auxiliary channel just before it leaves the board. The more places you can
    check this signal the better signal to noise (quieter recordings) you will have.

    The mixer will help you a lot as far as a patch bay. If you don't change the types
    of inputs you have very often then you can leave things plugged up to the mixer,
    label each channel, and leave your controls set the way you like them.
    You will probably want to move up to some of the larger mixers later on, once
    you've conquered the Folio. Some of the more feature-packed (and more
    expensive) mixers offer mute buttons, level meters, clip LEDs, etc.
    All of these help make the job a lot easier.

    Good Luck.....pete o.
