Which sound card you are using?

Mixer input and output leads

Now that you have what's needed, all you need to do it plug the lead into the outputs on the mixer. The outputs are the (usually) red and white outputs that have the phono type connection. Then the other end of the lead goes into the input of your sound card.

And that's it, all your instruments will now go through the mixer and you should be able to manage your sound a whole lot easier.

Slim's solution will work, however, there is a much better one if your open to investing in a PCI card that will do the job even better. Look at products from M-Audio. You didn't say what other ( if any ) output connections you have on your mixer. I could be wrong, but I think that most mixers have a MIDI type output. If that is the case, then the M-Audio Audiophile 2496 might be the card your looking for.

If MIDI input is what you need, both the Xonar D2 and Xonar D2X will work for you.
Either will offer significantly higher sound quality than a dated M-Audio 2496...
