    Hi there, I tried to search but I kept getting a 404 error so here we are.

    I was using a Focusrite Scarlett as a USB interface to take input from my X32 mixer in to inputs 1 & 2, then feeding it back to the mixer (for a mix-minus) from outputs 1 & 2. I had the Scarlett as the default audio device in Windows via USB. Simple, worked.

    Now, I’ve got the same output from my X32 to the first 2 line in channels on my qu-sb, and it’s picking the signal up fine, but now I am trying to figure out how to get it to feed back to the X32 as simply as the Scarlett did. My options in Windows are qusb ch 31/32, 29/30 and 27/28 whereas the Scarlett simply was one option and it was the only outputs on the box, so no guess work or routing at all. I don’t even know what channels 31/32 ARE, let alone how to run audio out from them out. Do I need to change something in the patch section? I’d like to use channels 15 and 16 of the line in section to run audio out but, again, I have no idea if that’s asinine or even an option. Even when I try to send signal back from the main outs, which I don’t want to use if I can avoid it (XLR), because of my limited options in Windows settings, it still won’t feed my signal back to the X32. Is it possible, and if so what do I need to do to route 2 hardware outputs (preferably ‘lines’) so that I can feed any Windows audio, since it’s hooked up via USB, out?

    I’m extremely new to this device and don’t have a clue how the routing works yet so please take it easy on me and don’t assume I know too much about it. Haha. I had to send it off for repairs right when I first got it and haven’t gotten to use it at all until now. If this is horribly confusing, please do ask any questions you’d like, I want to help you help me. 😀

    Anyone? I realize it may be a silly question to some of you but I could sure use the info! 🙂 Is this something I can do via the Matrix outputs? I just need to route a couple of 1/4″ jacks out that would send the USB audio from Windows. May that’s not even possible, but I’d like to know to stop chasing that goal. Haha

    I emailed support, for the record, not heard back yet (it’s the weekend though).

    How about reading the manual?
    Then you will find out, it’s a mixer not an interface…
    you can control every input with the software, since there is no (at least no relevant) hardware control on the QU-SB

    I use the much larger x32 MIXER exactly that way, so pretend it’s completely impossible to do a little routing with some of these USB mixers.

    But thanks for telling me to do something I have already done many times, it really is incredibly helpful.

    still, it’s a mixer…
    input > processing > routing > output processing > output
    additionaly the mixer has an inbuild audio interface with 32 channels in both directions…

    as far as I understand you, you have a USB signal from your computer that you want to send to your X32?
    so your computer has a control panel for the driver, there you can assign the outputs from the computer, to inputs on the QU-SB
    then as written in the manual, you have to switch the inputs sources to USB and the USB to USB-B

    then you can mix the inputs to any outputs you want

    I think you want the Behringer forum. You keep referencing an X32.

    Do you realize that this forum is for Allen & Heath Qu mixers and not Behringer X32 mixers?

    “I think you want the Behringer forum. You keep referencing an X32.”

    “Do you realize that this forum is for Allen & Heath Qu mixers and not Behringer X32 mixers?”

    Do you two realise he’s asking about a QU SB?

    Read the original post properly FFS!

    What a disgraceful set of replies from everybody.

    Says the person who doesn’t reply about the topic but instead replies to the responses. I think we can put your response in the “disgrace” pile too. At least we were attempting to point the OP in a direction, however wrong that might have been.

    What a disgraceful set of replies from everybody.

    I had no answer to the original question. So I didn’t offer a reply. I didn’t realise this was unusual behaviour here.

    Not wanting to start a war but I’ve been saddened by some of the responses to some legitimate questions lately. Surely a community forum’s aim is to help those of lesser experience. Maybe those with dyslexia who find it difficult to read a manual, or simply missinterpret terms and end up even more confused.

    Agreed!

    Semetery – I’ve read your post several times, and have to admit that I’m rather confused as to where the problem is.

    You’ve a PC, connected to the Qu-SB (via USB-B port)?
    And you want get sound from another mixer (X32) into the PC, and back out gain?

    The Scarlett is actually a red herring (!) and not part of this set up at all?

    { Does the X32 not connect directly to the PC itself, which I would think would be a simpler option? }

    So are you getting sound from the X32 to the Qu?
    Then can you get sound from the Qu to the PC?

    Same questions, the other way around:
    Does sound from the PC get to the Qu?
    And does sound from the Qu get to the X32?
