I have a m-audio project mix with presonus digimax fs all daisy-chain with firewire. I get 16 channels in and out with those but not 32 channels if the mackie was recognized.

Likely you haven't got the levels set properly. Start with the trim controls (head end gain) Make sure you are not clipping there. Also verify you aren't overdriving your amps. Remember that the outs are line level, not mic level so the gain oof following equipment needs to be set for line level.
ALWAYS USE balanced audio line from this unit... either XLR or TRS type cables. ALWAYS power ALL interconnected equipment from teh same receptacle or source to avoid ground bounce damage to circuitry. You don't say what you are using to record with. Make sure it has balanced inputs. For instance, connecting cables from this to the audio input jack of a PC which is unbalanced would be a disaster in audio quality. There would be a problem of levels and the unbalanced thing... You haven't given us enough information of your hardware configuration to analyze the problem more than what I have said here.

SOURCE: Hi. I have a Mackie
Check the settings in your computer in the control panel "sounds and devices" under the "Voice" and "Audio" tabs. Check that all are set to the Mackie instead of the computers default input.
