You may need to check, it used to be the x32 (Behringer brand, same basic
console) would only allow 8 faders to do Mackie control.  I do not know if
this ever got fixed or not, but I would bet that it is the same on the m32
as they run identical software.  If this is the case my personal opinion is
that you would be better off NOT doing Mackie control due to the
limitations of that board, but again you need to check and see if that is
still the case or not.
