Hi! I recently bought the Korg Volca Beat and Behringer UMC404 and I'm trying to route the audio from the Korg to the interface and to Ableton. I currently am using a 3.5mm to dual 1/4 cable to connect the Korg Out to the 1 & 2 inserts in the Behringer. However I'm receiving no sound. I also was wondering how to configure the Behringer with Ableton to receive audio from the channels.

Thanks for the help!

If you're really plugging the Volca into the inserts, rather than the inputs, that's your problem.

Inserts are used to break the signal path from the audio inputs for external processing. Inserts also require specially-wired cables to work properly. You cannot plug instruments into those jacks.

Unplug the Volca from the Inserts and plug those two cables into the inputs on the front and it should work.
