asked Oct 17, 2016 in AR Hybrid USB Mixers by fucinay (150 points)

Can these simultaneously record multiple tracks at once into the DAW through the USB via Capture or SO3 or any other DAW? If so, how many tracks simultaneously? I have searched and the answers are not clear. I understand one can multi-track via the USB and bounce to stereo to the SD card, but what I want to do is hook up all my synths + drum machines, jam live on all of them and record everything in their won track all at once which I can then edit track by track in SO3 or another DAW. Is this possible? Thanks.

Best answer

The AR series mixers can do multitrack recording when connected to a computer via USB.

AR8 does 8 channels. AR12 does 14 channels. AR16 does 18 channels

More information can be found on the StudioLive AR-Series Software Reference Manual as to Capture 2 software and Studio One centric setup and questions.

The SD card is a two-track mixdown.
