Hmm? I might buy one for son because his 8fx for sure bloody doesn't!
Soundcraft also do not give and will not supply a signal block diagram. There orta be a LAW!
The manual certainly implies that the USB sends a stereo mix to the computer :-
"USB recording channels
2-track USB functionality could be used for recording a mix to a computer or tablet, for example.
USB channels 1 and 2 sent from the Notepad mixer allow direct selection via the driver control panel from a variety of input channel pairs
or the Master Stereo output
The Notepad input channel signals are sent post-gain, pre-EQ signal to their respective USB recording channel. The Master output selection is routed to the USB channels before the master mix control
According to that the 8fx has the option of sending the two mic channels to USB 1 and 2 pre eq and fader or the stereo mix pre-fader. Selectable using the "Soundcraft USB Audio Control Panel for PC" app downloadable from the website. I don't suppose your son could have it set to record the direct outs rather than the master bus could he?
