Unless I’m missing something, then a very simple thing is being made over complicated here.

With the set up:
“FX Send 1/FX Return 1 – Doubler (Solely vocals on Ch 1 & 2)
FX Send 2/FX Return 2 – Reverb (For everything except acoustic guitar that I want to put reverb on)
(Using as FX Send 3) Mix 9-10/FX Return 3 – Gated Verb
(Using as FX Send 4) Mix 7-8/FX Return 4 – Reverb for acoustic guitar

3 lots of monitor mixes
Mix 1
Mix 2
Mix 3”

it is simple to send any amount of each effects return to each of mixes 1, 2 or 3, (as well as to L+R). The effects returns are just another 4 (stereo) input channels really – but limited as to what you can put

    into

them.

What you can’t do of course, is have (say) the Doubler for only vocal channel one in mix one and only vocal channel two in mix two, as the two are already mixed together within the effects unit.

Inserting an effect on one channel (so the acoustic guitar reverb here) can be useful, but once the relative amount of wet & dry is set that’s it – you can’t have more reverb in the mons than in FOH, which you could if you used an effect return channel.
