Just got my FireWire 800 card in today and tried it with Capture 2. I know I'm probably doing something stupid but I get about 40 recording channels in Capture and also it's not showing the channel names. It works and records but where are all these channels coming from?
16 of them say aux on them and when you talk on mike on channel one of the board, all 16 of those record the same thing.

What I'm wanting to do is be able to record all 24 channels on Capture and carry home to studio one where I can mix down. Was an
E to do that on my old 16.4.2. Thanks, anyone

chuckle... those are the input channels , the Auxes and the stereo mains... you can record/route and send signals all over the place with this mixer.. I know it's kind of a mind blower but here is wher ai have to become the "read the manual" nazi... because if your new top digital audio you have a LOT of catching up to do... no other way to say it... sorry... Key word searches on google will hep you to get up to speed but this is something your going to have to do for yourself...Digital routing is anything but intuitive to old analog types...

I have read all the material I can find on Capture 2 and still it says nowhere how to Capture 24 trks and where the 40 channels come from. It does say to click on save scene button but I've been over everything on my mixer and UC and I can't find a button that even resembles that. I spent 3 hours last night going over directions and still know nothing,

Yes, digital is a totally new game to me over analog. The thing about most directions is they are way to vague for an old school guy like me. Just like it says click on save scene button. What button, where is it, how do you get to it. I have clicked on every button on capture and nothing happens. This is the button, I have no button like this anywhere on my mixer or UC.

Section 7.3 of the software manual?

Well I guess your going to have to tell me, LOL. I've read and done everything the manual says and still wind up with 40 channels, 16 of which say aux and no name display where the channels are named. I did find the save scene button. It was on Capture screen, funny, they don't tell you where to look for this stuff. Nothing happens when it's pushed. I also checked the box where it says Load StudioLive mix scene just like the book says. Have done it step by step what the book says and still no go.

I do have the latest versions of capture and StudioLive

I'm betting it has something to do with this screen. I've looked high and low on how to set these and can't be found anywhere that I was looking. In the manual there is a brief description of what they do but not enough for me to understand. If someone would post how these are supposed to be set for recording 24 channels in Capture 2, sure would help.
Will it mess up my live settings if I go poking around in this screen? Thanks

That's the router, by default channels 1-24 are routed to FW outputs 1-24 to your DAW or capture... the others are the Aux sends...

If you want to only record 1-24, then energize only those channels...is toy only want channels 4,6 and 24, then energize only those...

You can re-route the channels with the router, but I don't suggest it till you are more experienced...

Ok, where do you energize channels to show only 24 in capture? I'm showing 40 which show 16 of those are auxes. I've tried every setting on this board and in capture and still showing 40?????

It will always show all of them, in the upper left corner of Capture, instead of "energize all" (will be red) Click that again, then energize (turn red) only the tracks you want to record. This is accomplished by clicking the individual record buttons on each track...

You will need to click the LOCK off in order to make changes if you selected "record now" on the initial screen...

Yeh, I can do that but I thought it was supposed to just show 24 tracks with their name just like on the board. No names or nothing.. I thought that what AI was supposed to do?
Doesn't make any difference now anyway, FireWire quit working totally, can't even pull Capture up at all now. I think something happened with my device driver on computer. Like an idiot, I deleted a bunch of stuff and may have messed it up. I deleted the old capture and also the old Universal control and it messed everything up. Thought they were independent of the new but I guess not.

Don't panic....
Go to the software and download the UC Ai for your board...if that fails, then update the mixer, that info is in your My Presonus account...I'll keep checking back...

Got is all going again by reloading UC-AI and Capture 2. Then it recognized my Firewire card.

But it still is showing 40 channels and the channel names aren't showing up in capture like the video for the new AI that Rick had on YouTube. I can just arm the channels I want to record but sorta rinky dink for a board of this caliber to show 40 channels when you only have 24.

I have some ?s

Why does it say SL 32.4.2AI up in the top left corner if you have a 24.4.2AI?
There are only 10 aux on this mixer. ? So 24 + 10 + 2 = 36 are the other 4 subs?
On the old mixers we can not record the aux. ? And why would ya want to?

That was just a photo of the demo board in UC-AI which is a 32. Mine says 24 up there. Sorry I didn't say what photo was.

But when I open capture, it shows 40 channels, 16 of which say aux. Don't understand this digital stuff at all. Don't see the reason for it. If you look at video Rick put out about the 32 AI, you'll see capture shows only 32 channels and has channel names on the left. ???????
Why does my 24 show 40????
