Hi Davyd,

You should be able to connect over Ethernet. The reason why we only refer to USB in the pdf is that it’s plug ‘n play and most will use USB for audio anyway.

First, make sure the mixer is set to a static IP address compatible with your computer. By default it is set to DHCP which will not work when connected directly into a computer. For example, set the Qu to 192.168.1.60 and your Mac to 192.168.1.10 or similar, both with subnet 255.255.255.0. In DAW Control, choose TCP/IP. If the mixer is not available in the dropdown box, type in its IP address and tick the Connect box.

Note that the Qu will only support one Network connection. You cannot run DAW Control at the same time as Qu-Pad for example.

Hope this helps.
