XR18 USB Routing Question

My band runs backtracks live through a DAW for our performances. (Studio One 4 Pro) 
Is it possible to route track outputs from my daw, directly to the analog outputs on the XR18 through USB? And if i'm doing that, am I still able to use my analog outputs to mix monitors at the same time as i normally would? routing channels patched into the XR18 through the ipads UI?

Yes. Are you connecting, for example, a bass from the computer over USB to a bass amplifier?

Only 1 source (mixbus, usb channel) can be connected to an Aux Out at one time. Each output can have a different source. Two sources can not be mixed ( without using a mixbus).

Exactly that! we need to run a Bass DI signal out to an amp, and a guitar DI signal out to an amp through two seperate analog outs. 
But from there, we also want to use it as a regular mixer and plug our microphones etc in and send them out the other analog outs which would be going to our in ears. This is where i'm wondering if it'll still work.

You can use 2 outs for Direct outputs and the other 4 for monitors (or 3 and 3). Are you using the Main L & R outputs for the Main PA?
