I believe you can use USB output for this. When I worked as a sound engineer I was able to get inputs from all the instruments and effects channels and send all this together to my macbook with a single USB cable and then used logic studio to view them. There is most likely a software out there that can do this for you.

Combine multiple audio interfaces by creating an Aggregate Device

Other company and product names may be trademarks of their respective owners. Combine multiple audio interfaces by creating an Aggregate Device An Aggregate Device lets you use audio inputs and outputs from different devices at the same time with audio applications like Logic Pro X, GarageBand, MainStage, and most other Core Audio-compliant applications. Set up an Aggregate Device When you create an Aggregate Device, make sure to connect all external audio interfaces first.

A new Aggregate Device appears in the list on the left side of the window. To rename the device, double-click it. With the new Aggregate Device selected, enable the checkbox labeled "Use" on the left side of the Audio Devices window. Do this for each device you want to include in the Aggregate Device. The order in which you check the boxes determines the order of the inputs and outputs in applications like Logic Pro and MainStage.

For example, the first box you checked will be inputs one and two, the second box checked will be three and four, and so on. To use the clock of a device as the master clock for all the combined devices, choose the device from the Clock Source menu of the Aggregate Device. Choose the device with the most reliable clock. If your audio devices all work with word clock, connect them together using a word clock cable.

Connect the cable from the device you designated as Clock Source to the input of each other device. Refer to your audio device product documentation for specific details.
