No reason should be a problem.

Do check that EACH CHANNEL comes through separately, if that's what you want. Some years ago I check and found it wasn't quite as I had assumed.

I'll see if i can download a tech manual from their website. Wow, their site redesign is awful! It's almost impossible to find out what they have available now. You just sort of have to guess and follow the line of "similar" products until you come across what you want. Ugh.

Found it. Thanks for the warning. The USB is 2 in x 2 out. So, no good.

Thanks for the info!

I ended up getting a Phonic Helixboard. Every i/p channel goes to Firewire. i think there is/was a USB version.

*sigh* Feature for feature, they're about 2.5 to 3x the price of Behringers.

Every USB mixer I've looked at has been 2 channels out only. None I've seen are multichannel.

All the 'Universal' models (not the 'Plus')

I think i've settled on this:

I can get it for $210, free shipping. Will piggyback it to the direct outs on my current mixer.

Got the thing and played around with it a little. I'm happy to report that it exposes 16 independent input channels through the USB connection. Setting up the track mapping so that each track recorded from a specific channel was a bit fiddly and time consuming. However, when i got that done i saved the .veg file as a template to use in the future so i've only had to do it once.

A customisable VEG template (VET ?) would be more elegant :-)

Chienworks wrote on 3/20/2014, 10:59 PM
There really isn't any difference between a .veg and a .vet, a .doc or a .dot, or any data file and it's template version, other than the fact that when you use one to create a new project the software won't let you save over the template's file name. So, by setting my 'template' .veg to read-only i've accomplished the same thing.

Loading a VET that defaults to being Saved as a VEG would remove a mind-step and be handy .....
