After gain is initially set why not put both consoles onto “Trim on Surface”, that way there is no interference FOH to Monitors. you both have + and – 24dB I would have thought that should be enough. This system seems to work for me.
Gain tracking is quite a complex issue, the only other option I would think is dual mic amps as in the XL8 which is considerably more expensive.
