X32 Routing to Daw for Mixdown
Gear: Behringer X32
Sonar 8.5 Studio
Maybe it's just me, not enough sleep or not enough coffee, but I can not, for the life of me, figure out the routing process to get the main L/R back to tracks. I am trying to mix down the tracks laid down in the DAW, coming back to the console, using the processing on the console and send that processed signal back to the DAW for a final mix. I have assigned each track a separate output in the DAW to correspond with the channels on the console. Out 1 on the DAW goes to Channel 1 on the console, and so on, and so forth.
To start, here is how I have the console set up.
ROUTING TAB, HOME TAB: Channels 1-24 inputs come from the DAW via card 1-24. Channel 25-32 I use for local inputs such as Bass Guitar, Acoustic, Electric, all analog inputs, and I route them to the desired channel on the console for recording.
ROUTING TAB, CARD OUT TAB: All the columns are set for local 1-32. I can't find a way to send the L/R down to card. Do I need to set the "OUTPUT 25-32" to a different setting, such as out 9-16 so that the L/R, which should be feeding the 15&16 analog outs. Sonar will on see the Behringer channels 1-32, which is why I am asking for guidance, or if I need to not pass go, and head directly to the psych ward.
I have been working on the problem since November when I purchased the console. I have been waiting for the Webinar video to be posted regarding X32 & Sonar, but haven't see hide or hair of it, and it was shot back on November 26th. I have looked everywhere, but to no avail. I someone can head me in the right direction on that, I would be grateful. I have been pulling my hair out trying to rectify my quandary, and now I have a Mohawk, and it doesn't look that good.

In order to get the Main LR signal back to any DAW you will need to assign either "Out 1-8" or "Out-9-16" to a bank of card outputs. As you state, choosing "Out 9-16" would get the Main LR signal to the DAW on "Outs 15 & 16", as this is where they are assigned by default. If you assign "Out 9-16" to "Card Outs 25-32", then the Main LR signal should appear on Tracks 31-32 in SONAR. On the "Card out" and "AES50 out" tabs of the ROUTING menu "Out 1-8" & "Out 9-16" mirror the assignments on the "analog out" tab.
Note: By default, the Main LR signals will be a "post fader" send, and the level of the Master Fader will control your record level back into SONAR. You can change the tap point when assigning on the "analog out" page.
When doing this, you can always route channel direct outs or any other signals to the other 6 unused "outs", so that you don't use a whole bank of 8 just for the Main LR.
Another note: If you are not using our P16 system & need to use all of your analog outputs, you can choose to route "P16 1-8" or "P16 9-16" to the Card outputs, then use the "P16 out" page of the ROUTING menu to assign signals.
If you have anymore questions, I can be reached here or via PM anytime.

Thanks. I had a feeling that it was something like that. I had tried the routing before, but I must of had something going to the wrong patch. I am just using the console and the computer, no S16, no P16. I can get everything to the DAW, except the mix of the console out.
Also, I there any word on the video? I would love to have that around as a reference. Let me know.
