How do I record all 32 channels into DAW software post fader, EQ and Dynamics?

Table of contents
 

First of all connect your console to your computer via USB connection on the DN32 Card located at the rear of the console.

 

Assuming all audio connections are made to local inputs 1 - 32 on the console and routing set correctly in the HOME tab, on the M32 display select the ROUTING menu and scroll across to the OUT 1-16 TAB using the cursor control (see points 1,2 and 3 below).

 

In the ANALOG OUTPUT column select OUTPUT 1 by rotating encoder 1 then click to select (see points 4 and 5 below).

 

In the OUTPUT SIGNAL column select DIROUT Ch 01 by rotating encoder 4 then click to select (see points 6 and 7 below).

 

In the TAP column select POST FADER by rotating encoder 5 then click to select (see points 8 and 9 below).

Now go back to the ANALOG OUTPUT column and repeat the procedure shown above for OUTPUT 02 - OUTPUT 16, making sure you set each of the corresponding DIR(ect)OUT(put) channels in the OUTPUT SIGNAL column, to match that of the ANALOG OUTPUT. ie:

OUTPUT 01 - DIROUT Ch 01

OUTPUT 02 - DIROUT Ch 02

-

-

-

OUTPUT 16 - DIROUT Ch 16

 

The first 16 channels have now been set to the correct output configuration. We now need to use the P16 routing option for channels 17 to 32, so using the right hand cursor navigate across to the P16 OUT tab (see point 1 below).

 

In the P16 OUTPUT column select OUTPUT 1 (see point 2 below).

 

In the OUTPUT SIGNAL column select DIROUT Ch 17 (see point 3 below).

 

In the TAP column select POST FADER (see point 4 below).

 

Now go back to the P16 OUTPUT column and set up OUTPUT 02 - OUTPUT 16, but this time use DIROUT 18 - DIROUT 32. ie:

P16 OUT 01 - DIROUT Ch 17

P16 OUT 02 - DIROUT Ch 18

-

-

-

P16 OUT 16 - DIROUT Ch 32

Channel configuration is now set up for all 32 channels so we now need to make the correct settings in the CARD tab. Using the right hand cursor, scroll across to the CARD OUT tab (see point 1 below).

 

In the EXPANSION CARD OUTPUTS 1-8 column select OUT 1-8 (see point 2 below).

 

In the EXPANSION CARD OUTPUTS 9-16 column select OUT 9-16 (see point 3 below).

 

In the EXPANSION CARD OUTPUTS 17-24 column select P16 1-8 (see point 4 below).

 

In the EXPANSION CARD OUTPUTS 25-32 column select P16 9-16 (see point 5 below).

 

All 32 channel inputs on the console should now been selectable in your DAW software post fader, post EQ and post dynamics.
