    Thinking of buying a CQ model to use on my pedalboard for processing my vocal mic and guitar mic into my in-ears. At the very least, I’d love to be able to gain up and high-pass both channels prior to sending them to the FOH console. That said, can I turn 2 of the XLR outputs into direct outs with the CQ series?

    I don’t believe you can do an actual “input direct out” as I believe these are all mix busses. However, you could send only one channel to the mix bus and set it pre-fader so it would act an awful lot like direct out. However, the signal you receive there would be post channel processing (EQ, compressor, etc) of the input.

    Of course you can have a direct OUT but you need to use a PC and a VST host software.
    Routing the desire signal to another input of the CQ that is set to digital IN.
    Only drawback is a bit of latency but I am able to get below 10 ms easily.
    Check if it is usable with your pedal.
