    I believe you don't have enough inputs to record the actual audio itself since the timecode system usually uses 4 input/outputs to transfer the timecode signal..
    Your best bet would be to buy the 3.5-3.5 cable and just plug it in tho the sound quality ain't gonna be that good.
    I tend to use a 2rca-2xlr-cable from the mixer to another audio interface which goes to another computer equipped with soundforge. That way the quality is a lot better.
