You might want to take a look at the XR18.   https://www.musictribe.com/Categories/Behringer/Mixers/Digital/XR18/p/P0BI8

It has XLR outputs and a 1/4 stereo headphone jack.  Also has a USB port for multitrack recording directly into a PC which would be my first choice if I were going to record something from an XR18.  Otherwise, you're going to have to take a feed from the headphone jack into your 07 or take a mix from one or two of the XLR aux sends--after a mix by whoever is running the XR18.  The level of the mix affects whether you really need attenuators or not.

Thx for info. X18 is a little different from XR18 in your pic. The 18 has RCA outs. Also has "CONTROL ROOM button (X18 only) determines whether the main mix or headphone/solo signal is routed to the RCA OUT jacks." If I used RCA outs, would I want main or headphone/solo? (Don't know what that is.) Thx.

If you got away with a board feed to a R-07 without attenuators you were lucky  or getting the feed from RCA outs, etc.
Is there something wrong with getting feed from RCA outs, etc.? Are results generally better from XLR or 1/4 outs requiring 20db attenuator? Pro level output gives better results? Behringer Support said, "Based on the specifications of the Roland R-07's Mic/Aux In, the RCA outputs of the X18 would be a great place to take your audio from.  I would use a cable that has left and right RCA jacks at one end, terminating to a stereo 1/8" jack."
What is the "etc," pls, in "getting the feed from RCA outs, etc."?


RCA outs should be ok as long a the cable is short (ie a couple of feet). XLR/TRS is a better solution in terms of minimizing noise, especially for cables of any length. You can use 100 foot XLR cable with no added noise but a RCA cable of that length would start to be an issue.

Sorry.  Didn't notice you are dealing with an X18 that has RCAs.   If someone else is controlling the X18, you are dependent on what they output over the RCAs.  Could be the greatest or something else.  What goes out over the RCA depends on what channels they route to the RCA, and how much of each channel they send.  Could be a balanced, even mix or not.  It depends on the person operating the X18.  They could be really expert and give you a great mix. 

Do you have the option of going to the soundcheck, trying a recording and then listening to see if it's going to work for you?
