    Hi there!

    I want to send all my channels i use (let’s say 16 channels) to one stereo out and send this stereo signal to my MAC.
    I’m using ”ManyCam” for a streaming – rehearsal room – concert and want to use the sound from my desk.

    Is it possible to route all my channels I need to one stereo out so that I can get the stereo signal in my computer via usb?

    Hope that someone could help,
    Best from germany,
    Torsten

    USB is just another set of outputs on the SQ, so there’s nothing special to do. You can send the Main LR mix to USB, or if you want to leave that alone you can set up a stereo Aux mix (with default board settings, there are a couple of stereo auxes already set up starting at the Mix 5 button). Any inputs you bring up in that mix will then be included in the output, USB or otherwise.

    You’ll need to route the mix output on the I/O screen. See section 6.4 in the reference guide (page 19) for a screen shot, and that whole chapter for detailed information. On the Outputs-Mix Out tab (on the left) select USB on the top. You’ll want to make sure the USB ‘source’ is set to USB-B. Patch the left and right channels of your main or aux mix to the desired USB output channels, and you’re all set. Just configure the software on your Mac to listen to the right inputs.

    You’re much better off using a matrix for a typical stereo send.

    If you’re in need of a mix that’s separate from your main L/R mix, then a stereo Aux is your answer.

    This has got me thinking. Would it be possible to take the stereo USB channelss out of my SQ into my computer and somehow sync that up with a video camera (or phone) also connected to my PC. Probably out of the scope of this board, but just curious if anyone has done this. Would probably be easier for me to buy one of those things for my phone and stick a 3.5mm in, wouldn’t it? 🙂

    I just did that at an install in that case it was using a QU mixer though.
    Using the USB B jack on mixer feeding into a lap top they use for live streaming, I don’t know what the streaming software on the lap was or so much about that end of the set up but their system would pick up channels 1 and 2 of the USB B multitrack output.

    In the IO output patch I set the USB outputs 1 & 2 to be the matrix feeding the live stream and unassigned the rest.

    As far as I’m aware there is NO stereo USB B output on the QU.
    I don’t know about the SQ though.
    I researched this for years to be able to feed an iPad pro with just 2 channels of USB through the USB port.
    Even if you turn off unused channels of USB B output “All USB channels are still sent” ?
    There are convertors to output 2 channels of USB available using the AES however they are horrendously expensive.
    So I would like to know the software they were using in their Laptop @mike C

    Regards

    True there is no dedicated stereo out on the USB B on either the SQ or QU but there lap top was just picking off tracks 1 and 2 for their streaming use.
    I do know that just their Windows 10 standard audio input set up would see just tracks 1 & 2 as well as Audactiy in normal stereo recording mode.

    Sure
    The way I got around the problem is to feed an aux into a small Zed which supplies 2 Track USB for live stream
    Anyhow Cheers

    I also have a small ZED that I have used as a USB IO interface….and it’s a handy little mixer as well.
