after some time researching the web and reviewing U Tube I cannot really answer the question 'does a (say) 16 ch digital mixer with a USB/FW link allow one to mix 16 ch on L9 from the mixer's faders?'


Can anyone adise?

    Logic supports many leading hardware control surfaces with little or no setup. See the Logic Pro 9 Control Surfaces Support manual for details on supported devices and individual configuration directions.

    Good luck!

    It depends on the Mixer and it's included software. The mixer has to be bulit to double as a "controller", that is... the Faders send out signals via MIDI or discrete USB/Firewire that can be interpreted by Logic's built-in control surfaces or controller software that integrates with Logic.


    Also, Mixers with USB often only have stereo IN and stereo OUT audio channels. Some Mixers could have 8 or 16 audio I/O channels, they will be more expensive.

    And I'm quite sure all Yamaha mixers from the DM range support it.
