I'm thinking about going the with Tascam Model 12. If you record your tracks to the Model 12 SD card, can you import them individually in Logic automatically? Is this something other modern mixers do? I used to have an Allen and Heath mixer years ago in the 2000s and then sold it to go with a smaller simpler setup, but want to get back into having a physical mixer to integrate with using my DAW as a recorder and simple automation.

Is it typical to use 2 Aux sends to form a stereo pair? Most effects units have stereo ins/outs, but mixers always label their Aux sends as mono, like 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. instead of in stereo pairs. To get more effects routing potential, is a workaround to use the Sub Outputs as Aux Sends?

Once I realized that the Tascam Model 12 was an audio/midi interface, I realized this is a much better solution than my current audio/midi interface, which is a Focusrite Clarett 4Pre. The limited small amount of Aux sends have me worried though. I could potentially want more Aux sends and go with a mixer that has more Aux sends (in combination with an audio/midi interface like the Clarett).

Did not realize that the Model 12 had MIDI capability. That was a major sticking point with me with Model 24 and Model 16

You’d think a firmware update could add MIDI. Unless there is a difference in the hardware that would allow for it.
As an aside, I still owe someone on this thread a how-to w/ connecting and configuring it on a Mac.
I figured out how to route the sound into the Mac with multiple channels in Reaper, Audacity and Ableton Live 9 and how to route out the sound to studio monitors.

Model 12 has midi in out and DAW control, also fader mutes solos, I do not think hardware is the same.

Maybe we will see an updated M16 and M24 with midi

There are no MIDI in/outs on the larger models. That is the issue.

I was thinking MIDI USB. I did see a clock setting in the menu though.
