I'm djing my first party this weekend - I just have a few questions regarding my setup.

I will be Djing with my laptop via Ableton Live 8 and the APC40. I use a Presonus Firebox as an external soundcard.

For the party I am renting two Yorkville NX55P active speakers as well as a Yorkville LS200P 200W subwoofer.

I will also be renting a Mackie 1202-VLZ3 compact mixer.

I will also be needing a microphone for the night.

I just wanted to know how exactly I should connect all of this equipment. How will I connect my Firebox into the mixer and can I simply connect the microphone to the mixer to achieve output or will I have to set something up in Ableton first?

Thanks guys hopefully I've provided enough info here.

hmmm.. about the response I expected. Ok I'll try it this way:

1. Through which inputs on the Mackie mixer that I posted a link to in the OP will I connect my external sound card to?

2. Through which outputs on the Mackie mixer will I connect the subwoofer to?

I'm assuming the 2 powered speakers I am using will be connected to the mixer's main outputs. I'm asking about the subwoofer's output because from the picture of the mixer I only see the 2 main outputs.

I'm assuming someone at the store I am renting from will be able to help me with this but when I orginally went in to get a quote the employee at the rental desk didn't seem very knowledgable so i'm asking here just to be sure.

Why are you using a mixer if you're doing everything in Ableton and on an Akai pad? Your soundcard has a mic-in and a monitor-out (for headphones) so I really don't know why there's a mixer in this setup.
