i think krushing didnt realize you need the mixer for live-gigs to...
if you dont make any live sound you will be good with just the interface!!!
so...i googled a bit , because the tech-info of the mixer doesnt say how the inserts are connected (tip, ring)...and you cant see it from the picture you posted ^^...
this mixer doesnt have direct outs and to few aux/groups for every channel..
i found a generel info of how the cfx series is connected: http://www.mackie.com/pdf/cfxseries_hu.pdf
on page 3 of this "manual" you can find at the left bottom the column "insert points"...
it its possible to use the inserts as an "direct out"...
you just need a mono jack (t/s, not TRS)...and just plug it into the insert until you hear ONE little click(its like half way in--> the russian way ^^)...so you will not interrupt the channel signal going to the sum bus, but you can split it and record it to your interface line input!!!
,,, everything all right????
ps: the only bad thing about that insert thingy is that you will never be able to have a balanced signal between the insert and your line in on the interface...so you have to keep the cables as short as possible to avoid "electro-smog" in your line signal
