One “isolation” thing to think about..

Whenever you have an output going to some one elses input, it is good practice to Isolate it. A stereo iso transformer or a pair of passive DIs.
The problem is that if the other guy has phantom turned on (or turns it on), it can do funky things to your console. I come from a Yamaha world where phantom on an output didn’t damage anything the couple of times it happened bit it made some awful sounds. I don’t know how resiliant the GLD is to this sort of thing.

I am much more careful now and always isolate feeds to other people.
