Is the ONYX only half an interface? Audio Interfaces

Is the ONYX only half an interface?

I can't seem to figure out if it's possible to send the audio back to the onyx as discrete channels once you have recorded something with them. Everthing states that a stereo mix can be sent back to the mixer while it's recording, but there's no talk of playback. Does anybody have any experience with this?

Here for the gear

With the Mackie Onyx FW mixers, you can only send 2 tracks (1 stereo) back to the Onyx for monitoring. The M-Audio NRV-10 can send individual tracks back to the mixer.

you're welcome

you know it would be way too good to be true for the onyx to send the individual channels back!

That is what I thought as well.

Are you sure? It looks like each of the pairs of outputs can use one pair of mixes from the DAW software....

But that's for the 400F, not the mixer. What do you want to do?
