The Tascam RW900MKII has both digital and analog inputs (located in rear of unit). Depending on your mixer model, you can take a Left and Right out of your mixer (either analog or digital) and connect it to the inputs on the rear of your device, respectively. If you can provide the make and model of your mixer, I can provide more specific details.

My Mixer is a Yamaha MG10XU/MG10

Thanks for that.

Your mixer only has XLR and 1/4" (phones) main outputs. Therefor, in order to send your mix signal to your Tascam unit, you will need a XLR to RCA or a 1/4" to RCA cable. I highly recommend the latter, a 1/4" to RCA cable. Here's a similar product for reference:

I trust that helps.
