Now that I've chained my MK3 Mikro to my DR-202 having audio issues.

I was finally able to chain my Maschine MK3 Mikro to my Boss DR-202. Since the MK3 Mikro dosent have MIDI jacks I used this adaptor

The Mk3 sounds fine thru my laptop and the Dr 202 sounds fine thru its headphones jack. But when I plug them into my Behringer Xenyx QX1002USB it sounds crackly and has no bass. The MK3 is going from the laptop headphones jack with a 3.5mm to 1/4" to the mixer. With the DR 202 I tried going from the headphones jack and the L and R line outs but both ways sounded the same. I tried changing the buffer size and sample rate but it didn't do much. I've ran both the MK3 and the DR-202 thur my mixer before and not had this problem. I know using the headphone jack isn't ideal, but I don't see any other options when it comes to my Mikro. Any thoughts on how to fix this? Thanks.

    @2wycked There is a little bit of confusion here. The Maschine Mikro MK3 is just a controller. It can't carry audio or MIDI on it's own. All of this is handles by your computer and the Maschine software. You should select the Behringer as your audio device with an ASIO driver. If you connect the DR-202 to the Behringer interface without any software or with another audio program, is the sound also crackly and lacking bass?
