To connect the StudioLive 16.0.2 to a computer for recording/control purposes, the computer must have a valid firewire port or one that can be used with an adaptor. USB to Firewire adaptors are not supported and in general do not work for audio equipment. If you are buying a new computer the following articles will be helpful.

Alternatively you can use an Apple Mac which would require the following cables/adaptors depending the Mac you get. 

If you purchase a PC with USB-C you would need to ensure that the USB-C port on the computer is an approved Thunderbolt 3 port.
