Arturia Keylab MKII Aux connections.....
« on: December 22, 2020, 01:27:52 pm »
Hi guys,

im new to the world of Arturia and im a also novice at rigs.Im looking to build my own home studio and i hoped to rig up a bunch of equipment and use them through a DAW ( Abelton), the one thing i cant understand ( sorry if it sounds Stupid ) is how to set up my Arturia so that the sounds goes in to my mixer, ( Yamaha MG10)  then from the mixer out to a loop box.(RC 505)

I have guitars, pedals and Vocals all set up on individual channels on my mixer then my output goes to the loop box and from the loopbox via Interface ( Scarlett 212 ) back inte Ableton and out through speakers.

I had hoped to take the output sound from the Keylab back to the mixer so that all instruments leave the mixer into the loopbox ( RC 505 ) as my END of line (pre Interface).

This way i can choose to use the keylab as an individual channel, choose to manipulate it pre DAW, and /or play together with friends on separate instruments together in a band environment .

So here come the stupid question....

Can i use the AUX 1,2 or 3 outputs, to send the music back to the Mixer so that all Mixer sounds go to interface/Daw via the loop box?

is it better to connect everything "Daisy Chain" style instead?

Like i said its the output from the keylab that im struggling with

thankful for any kind responses

Thank you

Welcome to the forum.

The Keylab is just a midi controller. It does not have any audio in/out capabilities. The Aux sockets on the back do not pass through any audio, as per the description in the manual they are purely for the connection of continuous pedals and footswitches.

You can kind of do what you want to do but you would have to use an audio interface in your computer.
