I appreciate it, @NoiseCoalition.Honestly after I set my routing, I started opening the mixer / routing software less and less and even started leaving the USB cable unplugged. Routing was basically set and forget. I use RME's Total Mix software to handle monitoring. I think Antelope's software, especially the mixer, is very clunky and unintuitive. Hardware sounds great though.
That said, I don't recall the Routing / Mixer software disconnecting randomly. I'll keep the software open for the next few days. It's not a true test since I use the Orion through the RME Madi Card and not USB but maybe will give us more insight into the USB stability if it the routing software randomly disconnects.
Actually, my local music/gear store was kind enough to loan me a unit for a week to test it out so I'll report back on my experience with HDN and USB.
I'm also looking at the Aurora(n) with thunderbolt or USB option card. Sadly they're special order only so there's no option to rent or borrow one.
EDIT: For anyone interested, I'll be going into more detail here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/antelope-orion-32hd-gen2-experiences.281988/#post-1992851
