  • Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for posting. Can you please provide me with your full system specs? Do you have the MultiMix 8 Firewire, USB, USB 2.0, or 2.0 FX? Depending on which version you have and your operating system, you may need to install drivers in order for the mixer to function properly with your computer and software. You can download the drivers from the product page on

    Check out this helpful YouTube video that will walk you through configuring your mixer within Audacity - YouTube: How to do multitrack recording with audacity, usb audio interface and/or a mixer

    Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
