Theres even a Screen Set function for changing Logics screen sets remotely.
Audio is passed from the SI-24 to and from a computer via the included RPC-1 R-BUS Interface Card, a PCI audio card with drivers for Windows, Macintosh and ASIO 2. The SI-24 connects to the RPC-1 via a single R-BUS cable, which can handle eight channels of bi-directional 24-bit/96kHz digital audio, along with MIDI information received from the SI-24s MIDI In and Out portsmaking the SI-24 a useful MIDI interface as well.
All recording is handled in the computer via the bundled Logic RPC Pro software.
