Is it possible to use StudioLive 24R, 16R, and/or 32R WITHOUT hardware, such as the 32S mixer console? In other words to control gain, etc. via software?
I'm interested in buying a 24R to use with ASIO4ALL to expand my channels in my studio. I will be hooking it up to PC via a CAT-5 cable. I see that the 24R does not have any knobs for gain or +48v phantom power. I was wondering how these are controlled, and if additionally purchasing hardware like a mixer surface, such as the 32S is required, or just optional. Ideally, if these parameters can be controlled via drivers, that would be great since I wouldn't need to buy the mixing console.
Thanks for the responses
