3. In the Mixer tab window, set the Software Return drop down menu, on both Mixer 1 and Mixer 2 (if desired), to Analog 1-2. Set both the Software Return and Mixer Master faders to 0dB.

4. Play the session in your DAW. You should hear playback in headphones connected to Ensemble’s HP 1 and HP 2 outputs.

5. Ensure the desired tracks are in “record ready” in your DAW.

6. Connect the signal(s) to be recorded to Ensemble’s hardware inputs - the signal levels will appear on the Maestro Mixers’ meters.

7. Raise the faders to create a suitable monitor mix of the input and playback signals. Record!
