    Audacity works fine. The big thing is to make sure your levels are good, then normalize after your done.

    sent from a device with a keyboard that hates me, using a system of tubes rather than a highway full of dumptrucks
    I'm mostapha. I lost control of that acount and just decided to create another one.

    Yeah, either should be fine. The advantage to the USB is that you don't have to worry about the master level effecting your recording levels. I've used Audio Hijack as well as an external Zoom recorder, and there isn't that huge a difference.

    Thru usb. You skip one da/ad conversion in comparison to rec out.

    Definitely configure to record via USB and into a recorded channel in Ableton or something similar.

    I would record through USB as the NXS2 has a killer sound card which can record at the same settings of some professional recording gear.

    Audacity should be fine as long as you have your settings nailed down. Haven't used audacity much but be sure to record with the right sample rate and bit depth that you want. Also check your NXS2 settings utility on your computer to manage your routing and recording level.
