(I'm searching for the manual) http://www.presonus.com/products/StudioLive-AI-Series Man, I am seriously looking into a 32 channel. I'm wondering about the dsub outs here. If anyone here understands my current hybrid system, I'm wondering if I could track with this, then mix ITB/OTB > send the mix via SL AI dsub outs to an analog matrix like I do in my hybrid summing process > AD into my capture DAW ? In other words, reading below sounds like we can track and mix either console or computer but are those dsubs sending the DAW mixed tracks out there? http://www.presonus.com/products/Virtual-StudioLive-AI Bidirectional control means you don't have to choose. Since VSL-AI control is bidirectional, you can control the mixer directly from the mixing surface and from a computer at the same time.
