Audio I/O to large analogue mixing desk

Hi there,
I'm thinking of buying a large(ish) mixing desk (36 input) and I would like to use it with my MacMini and various DAW's. I'm finding the world of interfaces a real nightmare as I cannot find many interfaces that seem to provide that amount of real audio outputs from my Mac (usb or thunderbolt usb 3) to then plug into the channels on a desk like that.
Has anyone got any suggestions at all please? Or, is this going to be so expensive that it's probably a non starter?
I currently have a Soundcraft Sig 22mtk which is great but I still miss simple things like meters etc,..
Many thanks in advance for any help,

36 channels of digital to analog coversion is possible, with many options to choose from. What is your budget?

I might go for Dante. Check out this Tascam...

I have it coming into the studio soon for interfacing with an Audient ASP4816 for the same reason...and Dante is scalable - so you can easily add to it.

God bless!

I'm scheming for an original Orion 32. Good reviews on the AD/DA, windows drivers are a nightmare but Mac seems fine, used <$1500, Gen.3 doesn't seem worth the extra cash.

I have an Orion, v1, with a RME Madi card and an Apogee DA16x. 64 channels I/O. Works great. Highly recommend it.
