i know that you can hook these two up with the direct outs and the input B. But my question is how do u edit the mix with the mixer using B does it re record it or what it confuses me. the reason im asking is because im planing on purchasing these two very shortly. If thats not the best way to go do u have any suggestions. i have other questions but they only have purpose if this is a good setup to go with i like having a control surface to work with ill use the Daw for other editing but i like a mixer. Thanx By the way i am new here so please be nice to me!!
