Thanks for checking that out, GCumbee.

To elaborate on why you might want to use a matrix rather than LR+Msum…

LR+Msum ties up 4 mix outputs, the same as you would with a pair of mono matrix buses. You could use one of those mono matrix buses as your “Msum” (just send LR to it and nothing else) and have the other free to do whatever you like. If you don’t have any use for the “free” matrix bus or just aren’t that tight on the number of mix outputs it’s probably not worth the bother.

I mix in a church with a mono PA and use LR+Msum with the Msum driving the PA, but may revisit this if we add more monitor mixes as we’re currently discussing. But I sometimes like to record a board mix to the USB for things we only get one shot at recording (funerals, mainly). Having the two different master buses that I can set levels/EQ independently is nice in that situation, so I won’t switch unless I can’t make it work any other way.
