    Could you fix the pre-fader problem by mapping the mixers faders to the channel volumes in Live? I don’t know the mixer so is that possible?

    Also - of the mixer is full midi, could you assign some mic knobs to channel sends in Live?

    No no, a MIDI to USB cable (cheap one) is like 7 bucks
    I saw a guide from some guy, i'll just map some buttons i dont use to controll the send return on both channels
    Who knows, maybe i'll have a Delay as well !
    I was hoping to just get a reverb, but to my surprise it might get even better !

    P.s. U've been a massive help mane !! #respect

    You don’t need one. Just get a midi cable.

    It’ll go from the back of your mixer to the midi in on the A8. You can the select the A8 as a midi input device in Live.

    The sound card is visible in Live as midi inputs/outputs.

    Mixer midi out > Audio 8 midi in > Audio 8 midi out > Live midi in (via usb)

    The A8 is also a midi-to-usb interface.

    Can be had on eBay for next to nothing.

    Right right... thanks for good explanation, gentlemen.
    I do feel a bit like a simpleton, but you've made it quite clear.
