Hey I just realized - I won't be routing the signal into a DAW, so will it still become a digital signal if I put a 1/4" input at line level and then output 1/4" to RCA into the tape deck, bypassing the computer completely. Does the Scarlett automatically turn everything digital or does it remain analog if I don't connect it to the laptop?
