    Hi all,

    Just figuring out howto do some EQ over monitors. It seems that i only can EQ things on the Aux bus, but not on channels. Lets say i have a stereo in ear mix, and the singer wants the guitar to be EQ’d how can i do that? FOH EQ is no problem but EQuing instruments over Aux channels. kind regards,

    Hi Maarten,

    Let’s say you have an iDR32 mix rack. Even though you only have 32 mic pre-amps, the iDR32 still has 64 channels of processing power. So you can assign mic pre-amp 1 to channels 1 and 33, pre-amp 2 to channels 2 and 34 and so on. Use channels 1 to 32 for front of house and channels 33 to 64 for monitors.

    Enjoy!

    Same way as you’d do it on analog console – Y split where one channel goes to PA, other unassigned from main mix, just to AUXes post EQ. The only difference here you don’t need to carry Y-cable with you.

    Ok i did the follow.

    Custom strip in Editor with two tabs. one FOH the other AUX

    both with 16 channels with same names etc etc.
    Now i’m able to EQ the instruments separately from FOH to Monitors.
    But still i have one issue left to fix. Now i cannot Pan the instruments so the the
    sterei in ear has a nice mix. How i can do that? hope you guys can help.

    thanx in advance

    You just make stereo AUX. That will have it’s own pan.

    HI ddff,

    I have allready a stereo aux setup (output 5/6) merged to one stereo fader with a panning knob, but how can i pan the guitars? or keyboards? I’ve setup channels 1 to 16 inputs and FOH mixing tab, and 26 to 42 as monitors (same naming etc etc) these channels have a blue preamp knob so that i have separate gain from FOH and Monitors, but then the panning does not work.

    Hi All,

    thanx so much for all advises and input regarding my EQ problem.
    It works like a charm now. I didn’t know the secret “right-mouse click” option to select source and choose post on all auxes.

    Thanx
