On our old analog GL2000 desk we always connected it as per option 3 with a small external DCA but when we got the new Qu-24 one of our sound guys (who’s works in computers) set it up with USB to USB-B to use as playback from PC to desk and also to record from desk to PC (using Audacity), but he couldn’t get the playback to work this way, but it works fine for recording the talks. I thought it would just be a matter of patching ST1 to USB-B (i.e. change ST1 input source from “LOCAL” to “USB”).
He also tried option 1 (PC Line Out to Qu-24 ST1) for playback audio from PC to desk and said he was getting a distorted sort of under water type sound and said this was probably due to mains hum from PC PSU transformer due to proximity to sound card. Go figure (as ye say in the US 🙂 )
