currently using X32R as DAW interface over USB. By default, The USB X-Live card taps into the input of all 32 input channels right after the A/D and supplies it over USB to the DAW...before also running the signal through whatever path is configured in the X32R. Fine so far..
I am thinking about buying the Lynx AES16e-50 card to have lower latency and perhaps a bit more reliable. Its not clear to me how the routing will be with that setup. I will need a way to tap into all 32 inputs on the X32R and send that signal to the AES50 port that is connected to the Lynx card. My hope is that I will be able BOTH send the signal to the Lynx over AES50, as well as mix those signals int he X32R for a monitor mix there.
Can anyone help me with the routing I would need to be able to accomplish that or similar?

Paul there are three versions of the card, look at the third model down on that page you linked to, 32 channel AES50

OUtput17-32: Whatever other signals you've got coming into the console. The X32R only has 16 local preamps, so I'm not sure where you're getting your other signals. AuxIn1-6\T for the aux sockets and AES50B 1-16 if other stageboxes would be the other relevant blocks.

I can't see any advantage of AES against USB, except longer cable run... Latency? I doubt so, or minimalistic. Besides, with the X-Live SD recording mode, you can also leave your laptop at home... Am I missing something here?

My computer, which is a dual processor 12 core Mac pro at 3.33ghz, cannot get better then 10ms RTL through x-live without stuttering audio.
Reports have been the lynx can acheive under 3ms RTL, combined with .8 ms latency of the x32 converters equals 3.1ms RTL.
