    xone 42 usb slot for recording

    Possibly picking up a xone 42 this weekend, I noticed there is a usb slot on the face of the mixer in the mic channel, does anyone know if you can record straight into a laptop from here...using ableton or audacity maybe? Trying to establish if I will have to buy an audio interface to record mixes or not. Can't seem to get a straight answer looking online, the person I'm maybe buying it off isn't sure either.

    Many thanks

    This looking online. Could you explain your process, I'm having a really hard time guessing your methodology.

    Anyways.

    USB Connector
    USB (Universal Serial Bus) V1.1 is an external peripheral
    interface standard for data transmission. Xone:42 USB
    works at 12Mbps and provides two stereo uncompressed audio channels - one stereo up and one stereo
    down, or two mono up, two mono down. It is fully
    compatible with USB2.
    The USB connection is used to send and receive audio
    data between the Xone:42 and a connected computer.
    Use a standard type A to B lead to connect to your
    computer.

    ................

    USB for Recording
    Connect your Xone:42 to your computer using a standard Type A to B USB lead. Open your chosen
    music recording software, ensuring that ‘USB Audio CODEC’ is selected as the sound recording device.
    You can then send your mix to your computer by connecting Record Out to USB In.
    USB Audio Levels
    You may find that the USB Audio CODEC volume is too quiet when you first connect your Xone:42. To
    rectify this, check the device volume in Control Panel\Sounds and Audio Devices:

    .........................

    I'll let you work out the rest.
    bored, curious, deaf or just bad taste in music?
    finally a mix by me
    and what's this, another shoddy mix...another dull mix

    Just read .somewhere...and now finally understand - that you can record straight from the usb slot without an external soundcard but first you will need to run an rca from the record-out and into the usb-in (rca-port) on the back of the mixer, essentially plugging an rca from the mixer back into the mixer (if that makes sense!). Seems a bit counter intuitive but does make sense.

    This was the bit I was struggling to get my head around.

    If anybody with a xone 42 can confirm this that would be great...
