    What is the best way to have an external preamp (avalon) FOH connected to lead vocal on stage?
    Equipment is CDM32 on stage – C1500 FOH.

    The request is from the artist to use this preamp. Im happy with the onboard preamps.

    In my opinion the best solution is to have the Avalon preamp on the stage – preferable in a rack with the CDM32. Mic > Avalon in. Avalon Out > CDM32 preamp with gain set to 0.

    Yes, you can have the preamp in FOH, but that will require a long analog cable running parallel with your multicable to FOH.
    My experience is also, tbh once you have found a good gain level, you don’t really touch it any more for the rest of the tour.. -and if needed during the show, you can just Recall Safe the MixRack preamp and Trim it up dB..
    Leave it at the stage is my recommendation.
