Hi, reading the manuals before buying I can’t clearly understand the recomendad connections for recording with. SL3 Rack:

  • Capture computer connected to usb (then, connections to control ethernet port will not function?)
  • Capture computer connected to control ethernet port?. This way i can also have multiple UC Surfaces connected?

Also for digital playback (not connecting via Xlr/jack), I understand that installing the UC driver and connecting the rack to the control ethernet will get the computer a new playback device which I can map to mixer inputs? Can tracks be played from SD?

Can I do playback and recording same time? With different computers?

To record too Capture you can use the USB connection or the AVB connection on AVB enabled computers.

The USB port connection to a computer can also offer you control via Universal Control installed on the connected computer

The control port is use to connect the mixer to a wireless router so you can then log in with a iPad/Android tablet for wireless control

The control port is also used to connected to a computer for DAW mode for Studio One

The SD card can only play back recordings that where made onto the SD card from the mixer, its not a multi tracking tool

You can record into a computer and playback audio from the same computer if you are multi tracking with a DAW
