As above, I have done shows with touring engineers & once a happy medium is set for the gain (from the monitor position) everyone switches over to trims for the show so neither one can ruin the others day with a sneaky change (because let’s face it, if you’re doing monitors & aren’t monitoring that particular channel when it changes you’ll be unaware it’s done until the artist gives you a reaming for it after the fact)… as far as the issue of PFL goes you can’t have 2 operators using different PFL’s at the same time – if the guy at FOH selects a channel that’s what you’ll hear in your PFL & vice versa. I’d suggest you’d be better either using a laptop running Editor for monitors or at least have one there for just those functions.
