I am going to record for the 1st time a drum set with my UX2 and I wanted to see if I was going to run into any trouble with this particular setup.
I was going to record with a 4-mic setup (3 condensor mics requring phantom power) on the drums.
The band has a mixing board with 2 channels for phantom.
Can I route 1 phantom condensor mic through Mic 1 on the UX2 (Phantom power on), another codensor mic for the Mic 2 of the UX2, the mixing board (with last phantom power mics and a SM57 for the snare) through line in (L and R), and to top it off, a Headphone amp for the guitar player through the Monitor In on the UX2 (The guitar player wants to play at the same time as the drummer so the drummer can feel like it's a live setting)?
On my DAW (Logic Pro) I will have 2 mono tracks ready for recording from the UX2.
I'm assuming that the Mic1 of the UX2 can go to 1 track (Panned all the way in the mixing view to the left), the Mic2 can go to track 2, (Panned all the way to the right), and the line left and right can be equal to recording tracks.
So, I can have a overhead (Left) going through Mic1 of the UX2, overhead (right) going through Mic2 of the UX2, and the kick drum and snare from the mixer going into the Left and Right of the line inputs (Hopefully creating a down the center sound on both recorded tracks).
Then, that headphone monitor in is not to be recorded at all, but we'll be able to hear it on the headphones.
I hope this makes sense as it's hurting my brain trying to figure this one out. Just trying to avoid buying a Saffire Pro 40 with 8 inputs.
Thanks guys for your input!
