I'm looking for something simple to connect the XS6 with the studio monitors and then run Logic Pro 8. My interests are dance/trance/new age music. Would Rig #1 work for me? Or do I need a mixer as in Rig #3? Another thing I'm not sure is which cable to use (XLR or TRS).
Greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.

When I look at your instruction for Rig #1 there's a way to connect the Motif or any keyboard with sound to the FireBox. "If you have a keyboard or module with sounds then it connects to the firebox line inputs 3 and 4 on the back." I really want to use the sound that's coming out of the Motif for recording. If Line-In 3 & 4 from the FireBox is already used to connect to the ALT OUTPUT of the Mackie 1402, then how can I connect the Motif in this case to the FireBox?

For recording an electric guitar, are you going straight through the Firebox and hooking your monitors to the Firebox output? Would it be necessary to have a DI box too?
So basically i think of getting an audio interface, record the guitars and vocals and do everything else on the PC using softsynths. How does this sound? Is the absence of a midi keyboard that important?
