    I don’t want it on channel 1 and 2 this is stated in driver notes, V2.20.52 routes stereo Windows WDM audio to ST3 on Qu-16 and Qu-24, Ch31-32 on Qu-32. I want to capture the audio digitally from the qu-16 mixdown. I use the live recordings and want to mix them on the QU in real time as I capture the mix that goes to Main L + R. How do I do this correctly? I had it working the wrong way since I lost channel 1 and 2 by changing it to 1 to LR/L and 2 to LR/R

    Setup page, output routing, should allow you to pick L&R as the stereo output to the PC
    see page 59 of the manual

    how? I want the audio that I send to my speakers L and R out but I want it on the USB, the only time I get any sound is when I make channel 1 and 2 L and R I don’t want to mess with my 1 and 2 I have stuff recorded on them. When recording a band with QU drive I would like to have main mix stream to my PC via USB what settings do I use, and yes I want the effects and eq on the feed. Im doing a live feed while recording 18 tracks is what I want to do and I also want to mix down 1-16 to a external pc via USB so far I can only do this using analog wires from xlr or the trs

    I get the right ouput if I use Output patch USB audio, 1 is LR/L, 2 is LR/R, 3 is 3, 4 is 4, 5 is 5, 6 is 6, 7 is 7, 8 is 8,
    9 is 9, 10, is 10, 11 is 11, 12 is 12, 13 is 13, 14 is 14, 15 is 15, 16 is 16, 17 is CH1 and 18 is CH2 like this I can stream a live mix with all effects after recorded, I have no idea what will happen when I go to record qu-drive and try having the live mix go to my PC

    Given that you are looking at stereo I’m geussing you’re not multitracking, and the output patch is independent from the input patch I think…

    On the Qu set any channel you want to be L and R on the Output patch, USB audio. On the PC, make sur your software is recording from input the same input. Example : On the Qu I have 17 as LR-L and 18 as LR-R. On the PC I have to record from input 17 and 18. You can choose anyone if you,re planning to record on a PC (just remember to select the right input on the PC) but for Qu Drive L-R need to be on 17-18 if you want to record the main mix

    What are you using to do the recording?
    “simple” recorders might not be multi-track aware.

    He’s right. Change your Main output to channel 17-18 in your software if you can. Audacity is free and will allow you to do that.

    Correction : I mean change the recording inputs in your software. Tell us what software you’re using. Will be easier for us to help you out.

    I been using Nero Wave editor, but I also have Audacity,, placed 1-16 back to the norm positions in USB audio output patch,and 17 18 are LR/L LR/R tried to receive the usb audio on computer I only hear tracks 1 and 2 my bass drum and snare all other channels do not get sent? tried Audacity same results. any screen shots to how to set this up so I can mix down my Qu-16 recordings on my laptop I need all the tracks not just 1 and 2, What I want is the mix I hear on the headphones or main outs, Looks like the only way is to use analog outputs and use the silly 1/8 inch inputs NOISY!

    You need to use the ASIO driver to have access to the other channels. Nero Wave editor does not support ASIO as far as I know. Audacity does but I just found out that you need to compile it yourself to include ASIO support which can be a PITA if you’ve never done this before.

    Looks like the only way is to use analog outputs and use the silly 1/8 inch inputs NOISY!

    Of course not. Otherwise the Qu would be useless in a studio setup. You only need the right software. So I did a quick search and found Studio One 2 free (would have been my first suggestion if I knew it existed). Let me know if you have trouble using it.

    And may I ask why not use Qu-Drive? Does exactly what you want and you won’t feel limited by the 18 tracks limit on a Qu 16…

    I use the QU drive to capture the event. Then I play it back on the Qu-16 and record the stereo mix, prefer to do it USB L and R post mix allows me to do the mix down right on the QU. Why I cant just get a stereo stream is beyond me. my method of playback is this and it works but I don’t know why I have to switch it on the mixer like this…. if I use Output patch USB audio, 1 is LR/L, 2 is LR/R, 3 is 3, 4 is 4, 5 is 5, 6 is 6, 7 is 7, 8 is 8,
    9 is 9, 10, is 10, 11 is 11, 12 is 12, 13 is 13, 14 is 14, 15 is 15, 16 is 16, 17 is CH1 and 18 is CH2 like this I can stream a live mix with all effects after recorded

    What software are you using?

    I have done exactly what you are looking at, and it just works – audacity does all the recording nice and simply…
