Piggybacking Notepad 12FX off of another mixing console

I want to purchase and use a Notepad 12FX as a recording mixer to a PC and need to parallel/connect it to the 1/4 inch TS unbalanced direct outs of our house mixer. 5 channels total.

  1. Can I connect the 1/4" TS unbalanced direct outs of the house mixer to the balanced XLR combo jacks on the Notepad? i.e.
    unbalanced to balanced.
  2. Will the Notepad XLR combos have phantom power on the 1/4" cables connected that way because I can't have that?
  3. The Notepad 1/4" inputs appear to be attenuated by 20db. Is this true and can they be increased using the gain knobs?
