Hi folks, just a couple noob questions about my IconnectMidi4+ Does a computer receiving audio passthru typically always receive it on a DAW channel? I have a setup where all the audio including that from my two computers (maybe a third soon) is destined for the same Behringer X32 X-Live card. I'm hoping to use the Midi4+ to get multiple tracks on the mixer from each computer, rather than just taking a left-right from each using an aux cable. However, if I route all the side computers' channels through the DAW on my main computer, this puts extra strain on the DAW. So I'm wondering if the Midi4 allows audio passthru to jump directly from the connected devices to this soundcard which is connected to one of the devices.  I'm also wondering this so I can use one of my computers for streaming and the other for performing. It seems silly to have a DAW running on my streaming computer just so the Midi4 audio passthru can reach the streaming program.  Thanks for any clearing up you're able to do! James
