Does this transmit both MIDI and audio over the USB-C cable, or do you have to use the 5-pin DINs?

I noticed that the front connectors say XLR/LINE/Guitar yet I dont see a switch to change it from line to instrument. How does this work?
Asked by: Leonil
The interface adjusts automatically based on what input connection is used. Please note, the XLR connection is only meant for mic level sources, any +4 line level input should be connected to the TRS input of the interface.
