    u will need a audio interface dat has a lot of in's and outputs to hook it up. usually pro interfaces come with 8 ins n 8 outs, so dat mean u could send 8 channels at a time into ur computer den monitor 8 ch. at a time. remember dat dont mean u can only mix 8 sounds at a time from ur mixer, just bus down everything meaning, submix all ur drums to 2 channels, synth sounds 2 channels etc.

    Really it comes down to what kinda work your doing.

    Most 32 channel desks have atleast 4 busses, which is fine for most stuff. Smaller audio interfaces with 192/96 are rediculously cheap anyway so it shouldnt be a problem.

    If ur jsut working with samplers, sound modules, synths e.t.c you could always just use ur comp as a midi sequencer. Everyone hates midi to begin with, but its very flexable, cheap, and dosent eat ur comp up. Just hook each divice to its own channel on ur desk.

    Btw I gotta ask..... how could someone get their hands on a decent 32 channel without knowing how to hook it up? Are u asking for any reason, or just to make another thread?

    There are many ways to do it.You just have to make sure of what type of interface you want. Analog or Digital.
    I have a MOTU2408MK3 Which allows me Both. I currently have it set up as 8 analog in and 16 Digital in.

    For you I guess it depends on the Mixer but I'd recommend Getting an Interface that does both so If you'd want to hook up Outboard analog gear.
