    • Hi Bill,

      Sure I can try to help you. It’s a bit difficult via written word, but let’s have a go. First, you have a good amount of gear to connect. It’s clear that you have more ins and outs than will fit on the bay. You’re going to have to choose wisely what goes there. That said, I have some ideas. Since your board is a Mackie, which isn’t bad, but isn’t bringing much to the party, and you have 8 and only 8 in/out on your interface, and they have nice mic pres, you should not worry about the Mackie on the bay. Wire the main outs from your interface directly to the Mackie on a pair of channels or better yet on a return in the center section. Wire the Mackie outputs to your audio monitors so you have volume control.

      When you record or mix, you’ll use the interface directly, so you’ll want all 8 channels on your bay. Make sure you wire everything balanced (if you don’t know what that means, ask me). Normal (again ask me if you don’t know what normaling is) the input to a snake so you can access the inputs from somewhere in your room (you gotta have somewhere to plug in the mics)

      Either leave the outputs (other than the main outs) un-normaled or normal them to the ins of all that outboard gear you mentioned. The outs of that gear will remain un-normaled as you’ll have to patch them into the inputs of your interface when you mix (this assumes you’re setting the room up for recording primarily, and mixing secondarily – my room is set up the other way around, because we do more mixing than recording).

      That should get you started. Be sure to use good quality snakes with good connectors. Look at Redco.com
