Hello, just recently I was recording a singer, using a StudioLive 32 series III. The singer was very exited about the sound of the FX I was using to send to his monitor mix and he said that he wanted that FX in the final recording.

I was able to send, with out a problem, the channel of the mic to the USB send to the DAW, but after trying many things I was not able to send the FX Return with the WET signal, to any USB sends of the mixer, and then to the DAW, I wanted to have 2 separated tracks, the dry mic and the wet FX return.

What I am missing?

The USB output to the computer is post pre amp. However it will never contain the FX process signal.

You can send the FX RET on its own to a spare flex mix and then depending on the flex mix used you can create a channel in Studio One to get that FX signal.

USB send on the mixer are 41/56 = Flex Mixes so you just need to create those channels in Studio One and then assign the inputs.

You can route FX A return to a fixed subgroup and route its USB stream to a track in your DAW. If it makes sense to record a mono reverb is another question... ;-)
