I just purchased a new 18i20 and I am hoping to reduce some of the equipment to simplify my setup. I have a Broadcasting machine with 8 HDMI inputs that I broadcast game tournaments from. This is how I would like to set things up with the Scarlet.
4 XLR Mics into the Scarlet.
Using the Scarlet Mix Control software send all of the inputs to my DAW (Ableton Live 9)
Output my DAW to the SPDIF out
Use a Cable to loop the SPDIF out jack of the 18i20 into the SPDIF in jack of the same 18i20.
Use my broadcasting software's ASIO capabilities on the same machine to take in the SPDIF signal.
Any reason why this would not work? Should I change the SPDIF clock setting on the 18i20 from internal to SPDIF?
Thank you for any help in advance.
