Routing from DAW to UC control mixer and back into the DAW with Logic Pro X

Hi, I need some help with what seems to be a routing issue. I have a Presonus Studiolive 16R that I use with LogicPro X as my DAW. I use the Universal control mixer software that comes with the Personus interface to monitor. I like the features of the UC digital mixer and I would like to use it as an external mixer for mixes (to use the compressor, EQs of the mixer). I don't have any trouble routing the DAW to the mixer but I can't seem to re-route the mixer to my DAW to print what I'm hearing through the UC mixer. I hope this is clear enough. Any tips? Ideas? Tutorials? Thanks!

I've got this exact same issue! I've got the 32r. I've got all my keys going analog in and I can monitor everything just fine, but I can't figure out how to get a signal back into my DAW to print tracks. So, yes. I second the notion of any tips, ideas, and tutorials that might help.

FWIW, I can get audio back into Studio One, but I can't with MOTU Digital Performer, which ultimately, is the DAW I would like to use (since I've been using it since it was MOTU Performer. Yes, I'm that old LOL) But, I guess if I have to switch DAWs, then I will...with a heavy sigh.
