I like my AR8 mixer, because with that i can use easy ik multimedia arc 2.5 to correct my speakers and it work with youtube and all windows sound programs at low latency. The steps need to do:

In DAW and windows sound choose SL-AR8 Playback 1/2 for output
In universal control choose loopback virtuell
In a VST minihost choose
SL-AR8 Virtual 1/2 as input
SL-AR8 Playback 3/4 as output
this switches on mixer need set
On channel 5/6 USB button 3/4 need be down
USB/SD Card Return switch must be up
in windows sound need AR8 1/2 and 3/4 and virtual 1/2 disable exclusive mode. i get strange block of asio out without that.
ASIO work shared low latency and togther with windows sound.but a sound program that run in exclusive mode can steal the asio device and i notice it sometimes that need reboot because a program does not release it
so best for ar8 is disable exclusive mode in windows, latency is 128 samples and it is unherable

now can use in a VST minihost effects, speaker correction as insert effect
to compare fast with and without inserts, can change USB button 3/4 to up and USB/SDS card button to down

If you want mix channel 1 and 2 and 3/4 to main with speaker correct, this need do in DAW with Asio by choose of the inputs and output them with a monitor route to SL-AR8 playback 1-2
