I bought present for my wife: mixer q802usb, 2 microphones, keyboard. She would like to record songs: voice+keyboard and classic guitar connected to second microphone.
I connected mixer to my previous PC with XP, and we could record voice
But my od PC doesn’t work so now I have PC with WIN 10. I installed drivers from Berhingers site:ASIO4ALL, and now I don’t know how to record, how to configure audacity.
We are a bit frustrated because I are beginers in recording and I don’t know how to start? when I could fine tips, tutorilals ??
By the way, Audacity as shipped does not support ASIO so will not work with the ASIO4ALL drivers advertised on http://www.music-group.com/Categories/Behringer/Mixers/Analog-Mixers/Q802USB/p/P0ALM/downloads. The link Behringer gives just leads to http://www.asio4all.com/?MyCheckbox=This… which won’t include any standard WDM drivers that Audacity could use.
To set up your mixer you might want to look at the Q802USB Manual https://media.music-group.com/media/PLM/data/docs/P0ALM/Q1202USB_Q1002USB_Q802USB_Q502USB_M_EN.pdf.
Thank you Gale,
I connected keyboard and microphones to mixer, and then mixer to speakers, it works,
but I don’t know how to record 2 track in audacity, maby you know another program to recording songs, that works with this mixer?
I uninstalled asio
I would assume it uses the regular Microsoft-supplied USB audio drivers (except if you run an ASIO application).
With the Behringer plugged-in, right-click the Windows speaker/volume icon and select Recording Devices. The Behringer or “USB something” should show-up.
If it doesn’t show up, that’s a driver/hardware/Windows problem (It could be a bad USB cable or a bad USB port). If Windows sees it Audacity should see it and you should be able to select it as your [u]Recording Device[/u]. (Plug in the USB before starting Audacity.)
Hi, I’m currently looking at buying the Behringer q802usb as well but the only review I could find is this https://guitarunited.com/behringer-xenyx-q802usb-review/ and since you’ve had your mixer for a while, I was just wondering if you recommend it until now? Thanks for your insights, I’d really appreciate it
