So the recording is happening (you can hear it through regular speakers), but you aren't getting any playback through the Alesis?

Is that a correct summation?  If so, that is actually a pretty good problem to have, as it means *most* of your stuff is working right.  smile

Yep, that is/was correct Jerome. See above post and Thanks again.    b

Re: New Mixer

Man, we'll get there. When you say main volume, is the the one at the borttom of the strip for that mic?  There is just something about my finished recordings that I do not like, but I can't figure it out.  I know that is vague and you can't help me on it, but I am just trying to get the finished output sound louder without having to crank up my speakers.

Re: New Mixer

Each of the strips will have their own volume.  That is usually a slider but on your model it's just a knob.   That controls the level (a.k.a. the volume) going to the "main" mix, which is controlled with the "main" knob on the bottom right of the mixer's panel.  That one controls the overall volume of the total mix.

But I guess I should ask what you are using to record with?  Are you using just the webcam software?   It may only be picking up a mono signal while the mains will be outputting in stereo.  That would effectively cut your levels in half.

When you record, you want to turn the main up as loud as you can.  You might try turning off the "2 trks to main" button as well.   Try a couple of different things.  Record some audio and turn the track strip levels up and down, and then leave it high and turn the mains up and down as well.

Re: New Mixer

And I think I have figured mine out also.  At least mostly.  It's sounding better.  I thoght I was supposed to sound like Josh Groban when I use it, but I guess not.  There must be a knob for that.
