Is it possible to use StudioLive effects (reverb, compression, etc) when recording to a livestream program (i.e. OBS)?

I did a quick scan and don’t think I saw this question .  Here is my setup:

2019 MacMini, running Catalina

StudioLive 32r, with recently updated firmware

My mixer is connected to powered speakers, and my computer via USB, to run Universal Control.  I’m setting up to livestream using OBS (set up in there is simply selecting StudioLive 32r as my audio source and I’m good on that end).  When listening through in-ears and the powered speakers, I hear the effects, but if I record in OBS to test the sound, the audio is dry.  

After all the background info, my question is this. Is it not possible to get effects to record to OBS? Are there alternative routing options I can try to possibly get it to work?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can apply the the VST in filter in OBS.  (Ex: Reaper Plug-in)

You can also use DAW and apply the effects and use it as audio source in OBS.
