    I have a Helix Rack and an Ipad on an Focusrite itrack dock. I want to output sound from both together to headphones, monitor or cab. Do I need a mixer?

    The itrack dock has two 1/4" monitor outputs and two XLR inputs and two 1/4" inputs, plus USB Midi.

    So the idea is:
    1. (Helix Rack pre-amp/Cab) + (ipad/itrack dock) = Single Stereo Output (headphones)
    2. (Helix Rack pre-amp/Cab) + (ipad/itrack dock) = Single Stereo Output (2x powered studio monitors)
    3. (Helix Rack pre-amp) + (ipad/itrack dock) = Single Stereo Output (cabinet)

    Otherwise, how can I do this? Total noob here.

    Thank You!
