Presonus Quantum Mindmelt- Main Stereo Out vs Output 1&2??

Any Quantum users able to shed some light on this?

The Quantum has a main stereo out and eight individual outs. The 'dedicated' main stereo outs are connected directly to my monitors leaving me with eight individual outs. Not so it seems.

Individual outputs 1&2 don't seem to exist. In Cubase, Live or Protools when I send a signal to individual output 1 or 2 it goes through the left or right channel of the main stereo outs. Individual output 1 (from the Daw) is output 3 on the interface. I thought maybe there will be 10 outputs so that outs 7&8 become 9&10. Not the case. The issue is my interfaces, patch bay, and DAW IO's don't tally up. It's become rather inconvenient. Is it error at my end?

Quote from manual referencing the main outs:
These are the main outputs for Quantum. The output level of
the Main Outputs is controlled by the Main level control on the front of the unit. Like the eight line outputs, the main outputs have independent playback streams
(playback streams 1-2).

Hi, did you ever figure out this problem?

Yes but there wasn't an issue with the Presonus. Every output on the interface is seen by the daws I/O which includes the headphone and SPDIF outs. Essentially I was counting the outputs wrong seeing 10 instead of 16. The main/monitor are seen by DAWs as outputs 1+2 which of course makes individual outs 1 and 2 on the Presonus appear as outs 3+4. I was also connecting a patch bay and a Ferrofish Pulse as at the time so my interfaces, Daw and patchbay I/O didn't tally up. Aside from that initial hiccup the Presonus have been exemplary.
