I need some advices about the connection of the ULTRAGAIN PRO MIC 2200 with a XENYX X1222USB mixer.
I would like to use the preamplifier with a condenser microphone, connected in a mixer channel, let's say in the channel 1 for example.
I already use a COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX 2600 connected to the same channel's insert plug via a Y cable.
Doing so, the channel 1 insert is already occupied by the compressor.
Well, I desire to use also the tube preamp for the microphone.
How can I connect all the outboards?
I need to preamplify the mic thru the MIC 2200.
Must I skip the preamp of the mixer?
If so, how can I do that?
Consider also that my send channel must be connected to a VIRTUALIZER 3D FX2000.
In a few words I need to tube preamp (ULTRAGAIN PRO MIC 2200) the mic, compress the signal (COMPOSER PRO-XL MDX2600) and to apply a reverb (VIRTUALIZER 3D FX2000).
All using the XENYX X1222USB mixer.
Please help me, I' m getting insane :))

Hi Antionio!

Thanks for your question, I have submitted your question to tech support, and this is the answer they've given me:

1. Connect the microphone to the mic input on the MIC2200 first.
2. Then connect from the output from the MIC2200 to the input of channel 1 on the mixer.
3. Connect to the balanced TRS 1/4" line input rather then the XLR mic input.
4. The compressor and FX can remain connected same as before.

Hope this helps!
