I'm looking for ways to record 8 channels of sound to a DAW while passing the 8 channels along to the sound guy. The Behringer XR18 has been reccommended to me but I don't want to buy it until I know it will work.
At this point reading manuals I can't figure out how to route 8 channels from the 8 inputs to 8 outputs for the sound guy while recording 8 channels to a laptop DAW through the USB. Is this even possible? I'd like to leave the sound guy completely responsible for FOH and unpowered wedge monitors at this point.
