Series III mixer and multitrack recording question

asked May 27, 2017 in StudioLive Series III by jonswift (380 points)
After reading all the product info and questions re Studio live and recording I am still a little confused. I understand that I can record a multitrack show on the card and dump into Studio One on my MBPro  and mix.  My question is: if I decide I want to redo a vocal, add a track etc, can I plug in a mic to my Studiolive and record into the (previously recorded) project on Studio One? Furthermore, can I record multitrack recordings directly into Studio One i.e., use this for a home studio? If not, I'm sure what the purpose of the USB and AVB inputs into the laptop is.  Btw I have a MBPro with thunderbolt 2

Just like the previous AI series, which uses FireWire for multitrack, the Series III mixers can multitrack recording / playback audio via USB. The mixer has a driver for Windows use (ASIO) and on OSX / macOS it is USB class compliant, requiring NO driver for use.
