First off, I apologize if this is a stupid question or comes off as completely newbie. I am brand new in the audio engineering world and am learning through hands on testing and tinkering. I have literal zero experience in this world so I want to preface that incase I miss something or can’t give you a comprehensive response.
I just picked up a Behringer X1222usb Mixer that I would like to use to record five separate mics with. While testing, I couldn’t seem to split the mics into their own tracks, so that got me wondering if I even could with this setup.
I’m currently on a Macbook using Big Sur 11.0.1. When I go into Preferences > Devices, my channel options are Mono and Stereo.
My question is, is it possible for me to record five mics as their own tracks?
It is absolutely not a big deal if I can’t. I’m ok to do this as live mixing and change things on the fly for editing later. It would just make editing a whole lot easier in the long run.
My setup if it’s necessary information:
- 2018 Macbook Pro
- Behringer X1222usb Mixer
- Two (2) Behringer XM8500 Mics
- Shure SM48 Mic
- Two (2) Audio-Technica M8000 Mics
Thank you for any help.
