Generally speaking mixers used for live sound are too noisy to use for recording applications. So, technically, 'yes' you could hook it up, but realistically, it wont make a very nice noise. The sound quality would be made even worse if you tried to plug the mixer directly into a mic socket on a PC/laptop as the mic socket will try to amplify the signal (...

Yes, you can. You'll need a stereo RCA to 1/8" adapter like this. And then connect the 1/8" into the line input on your computer's sound card.

In order to run monitors or any other kind of sound amplification, you need a power amplifier and a loudspeaker. A "passive" monitor is just the loudspeaker. "Active" monitors have a power amplifier built-in. That's why the passive monitors are cheaper — you can't connect them directly to the cinch (RCA) outputs of your audio interface and expect them to ...

The UR 12 "line output" is meant to drive an amplifier. It doesn't have enough power to drive speakers directly. Note, the UR12 also has an output that is meant for driving headphones. Whether you buy passive speakers and a separate amplifier, or active speakers with built-in amplifiers, is up to you.

Windows asks if what I am plugging in is a headphone or "speaker out". I would have expected you had three options, not the two that you mentioned: "headset", "headphones", and "speaker out".

If you try to use two audio interfaces at the same time... you are asking for trouble. A second consideration is the mics... What kind of mics are you using? If you use cardiod mics, they normally have a very ...

Different amps have different types of line-out. An early modification for Fender amplifiers was to fit a 'tap' out of the preamp, by splicing an output between the preamp and power amp sections. Before master volume controls were standard this allowed a Fender amp to be run at a cleaner setting, and then bolstered to concert volume using another power amp. ...

You can if it's a line out jack, as it will be a line level output and is made specifically for the purpose of taking the output of the amp section (not cab) and connecting a different cabinet or recording etc. Be careful that you select the appropriate line level on the interface, or Bad Things could happen (most likely a weak signal, worst case a damaged ...
