how do i connect my new m-track 2x2?

i just bought it from Guitar Center and don't know anything about it except that the salesperson said i needed it to make home recordings. i don't even really know what it is. i have a mike, midi keyboard, mixer, powered speakers, Win10 pc, ipad - but don't know where the m-track 2x2 goes.

a tutorial, beginner's guide, or video(s) are called for...and i apologize if i haven't found them.

    Hi Lee,

    Thanks for posting!

    Congratulations! You may be one of our first users with an M-track 2x2. We're still working to put together some guides to help get set up, but I can give you a basic description here.

    The M-Track 2x2 is an audio interface, so you'll want to connect it to your Windows 10 PC with the provided USB cable. The M-Track will take the signal from your microphone or other instrument and convert it to be recorded into software on your computer. I'll assume that you are going to use the provided Cubase LE software. The M-Track will then also act as your output device to send the audio back out to any connected headphones, or speakers connected to the main outputs on the back of the interface.

    To start, you'll want to download and install the driver. You can download it from the link below:

    M-Track 2x2 - Windows Driver

    You should have also received a download card for Cubase LE. Follow the link on the card to download the software. You will likely need to create an account and enter the authorization code provided on the card. Instruction should be provided at that point to complete the authorization and installation of the software.

    Once the software and drivers are installed, connect the M-Track and open the software. I think that this guide should help take you the rest of the way:

    M-Track Eight - Getting Started with Cubase LE

    This is for an eight-track interface, whereas yours is only two, but the setup steps should be the same. just remember to replace any reference of the M-Track Eight with the 2x2 and remember that you do not need to set up eight inputs, only two.

    After that, the guide will give you a brief description of how to get started recording in the software.

    One thing, that I want to point out about the interface is the Monitor Knob. This is used to help you balance between hearing the audio signal from your computer (i.e. playback from Cubase) and the direct signal from your inputs on the M-track. While setting up and getting started, you may want to leave this knob in the middle so that you can hear both equally. Adjust the knob to the right or left to listen to one more than the other.

    I hope this gets you started! As soon as we have an actual walk through guide ready, I'll be happy to pass it along. In the meantime, just let me know if you have any questions!
