How to use 'layers' on the studiolive 32 III

OK I'm new to the studio live 32 III and I am used to using an O2R96 from Yamaha.

On the Yamaha desk you use 'layers' for the input channels, another layer for the output channel etc. but on the Studio Live 32 III I don't really see quite the same thing. It seems that (and I may well be wrong) the input button handles the inputs (pretty obvious) and I should be able to set the input type fine enough and store that or at least have the desk remember it, but where I seem to get lost is when I want to listen to say 6 or seven tracks recorded to Studio 4 as the musician is recording the new track or tracks and the playback of the already recorded music. Seems (again I could be wrong) like analogue in for the inputs and usb for the 'user' mix somehow is adrift.

I guess the concept of layers is a little out of it somewhere on this desk, but I don't really see any videos that describe the concept of layers (as I understand them on the Yamaha) to get me past this to clearly see what the options are. I'm guessing for the most part.

The desk is going to be used specifically in the studio connected to a PC via USB for the streaming and RG58 for the control which I have working. The PC is a big fat Xeon with 3 x SSD and 32Gb ram on windows 10. There will never be any live use.

If anyone could just give me a bit of advice about the 'layers' (I'll call them that for now) then it should all be hunky dory.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

User layers are used to assign SIII inputs , outputs, and EFX to these custom layers for live sound.
