If you want to conenect more than one external monitor you need more than one video output, and a video card that supports two external outputs being used at once.

Most laptops only have one output. Higher end laptops tend to have two, and workstation laptops can have up to THREE usable outputs at once, with a quadro or or amd equivalent-level card.

Also keep in mind you may need dofferent cables or adapters to connect different types of outputs to the screens.


As for your second question, youll need 2 x TRS cables to connect your balanced outputs on the back of the 2i2 into two inputs (or one stereo channel) on your mixer.

Cheers.
