Can I do multi-channel/track recording on a SoundCraft Si Compact 24 with the USB port using the software console?

Would I have to purchase the Si Multi Digital Card for this?

I wanted to record multi-channel and use SoundForge or Cubase or other such software.

Many thanks for the help!

Here's a link to the Si Multi Digital User Guide which should be useful for you:

The Soundcraft® Multi Digital card offers digital audio connection between an Si Series console* and Apple® Mac® enabled with Firewire (1394), or PC enabled with a USB or Firewire port. Audio capability across the Firewire or USB link is 32 channels in and 32 channels out at 48KHz. In addition to the Firewire/USB ports, the Multi Digital card provides 8 further channels of ADAT in and out at 48KHz. Connection and setup of the card to a PC is made simple with the use of the Soundcraft digital audio driver and associated control panel. Firewire connection to a Mac requires no software or drivers.

This seems to be the cheapest option for connecting to your computer.
