Default yamaha powered mixer

i have a yamaha emx860st powered mixer. has 6 input channels + 2 with l/r inputs. can put a few instruments in and mics. also has like equalizer control for monitor and main (stereo), effect out, aux input to main (l/R), tape in (l/r), rec out main stereo and monitor output main stereo + more.

so far i just use it as a fancy guitar amp and put my daughters electric piano through it. i would like to know how to record on it so i get all the sounds i hear and can i connect it to a pc.
can anyone help or know where i can get some tech info on it.
Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

the easiest way is to connect an auxiliary cord with a 1/8 end into the output on the mixer. Then plug the 1/8 end into your computer's microphone port. Then switch the microphone settings on your computer to recognize it.

this won't separate the channels onto different tracks, but it still works for simple solo projects pretty well.

Also i think you can download the manual for the mixer online so you can get all the information you need about it.

Your mixer can't record, but you can use your computer to record what's coming through it. Usually this requires an audio interface, or at the very least; an input jack on your computer. (not the microphone port, but the line-in)

If you want to record several channels at once and have control of each channel seperately in your recording software, you'll need to have a multiple-input audio interface. There are some relatively cheap ones available with good quality.

If you don't mind having just one stereo recording of everything coming through your mixer, then you don't need a multi-input interface, and you can use your computer's input port. But in both scenarios, you'll needs some kind of recording software to record the sound coming in from your mixer.
