i guess that highly depends on what you want to do...and how you want to do it!
i looked up you interface and mixer...both dont seem to be high quality gear!
if you want to use all your gear at the same time, you wont be able to not use the mixer because you just have 1 stereo input on your interface if i am not mistaking.
so...hook up all your sound-making devices(mic, mpc, keyboard) to the mixer...(and its according inputs of course....mic to xlr...all the other stuff via jack)
then...hook up the main out of the mixer to the interfaces input...either xlr or jack...doesn't matter as long as you use balanced jack cables..
i cant think of a good use for your midi-controller....
because you just record the mixers sum...so you'd have to mix analog anyway..and it wouldnt make too much sense using it to controll audacity...
maybe you could use it for the mpc....
hope that helped...cheers
