Putting It All Together
Now that you have all the requirements, we move on to setting it up for recording.
First, install your sound card inside the cpu using the available pci slot. Second, put your analog mixer beside the cpu and connect the RCA cables from left and right record out of the mixer to line in of your sound card. Some would prefer to use the mic in of the sound card because of the mic boost feature of drivers, but it will record only mono, and we like higher quality so, put it to line in to record stereo instead.
Then, connect your mic cables to the mixer, the mic and mic stand. Turn on your mixer and mic, and check whether there is sound from your mic by looking at the volume level meter of your mixer after you put your faders up from the mic channel, gain, then master faders.
