    Hi there
    I’d like to do the above but I’m having trouble getting my head around how I assign the QU16 to do so.
    If someone could run me though the steps that would be great.
    This is so if a client wants to speak through ANY of the mics themsleves it wont have any effects on them.
    Thanks in advance.

    I’d try to use a mutegroup and assign all FX to that. Just guessing, not at the desk…

    Yes. Setup softkey on a mute group. Assign mute group to FX sends. Better sends so you don’t chop off a reverb tail if engaged too quickly.
    My demo console is boxed up right now so can’t write down exact steps. Maybe someone else can.

    p39-40 of the manual explain how to assign channels/mixes to a mute group:
    Select your FX send. Press the routing button. Go over to the Mute/DCA Group Assign tab. Assign the selected FX send to Mute Group 1. Rinse and repeat for other FX sends.

    What’s probably quicker is to press the routing button, press the Fn button and go over to the Mute Group Assign tab, press the Mute Group 1 Tab. This allows you to assign many sources at once to a single mute group. Assign all your FX sends to Mute Group 1.

    p59 of the manual describes how to set a softkey as a mutegroup master:
    Setup>Control>Softkeys. By default they’re already assigned to mute masters 1-4, but you may have changed them to things like tap tempo, scene recall etc. Anyway, ensure that at least one of them is assigned as Mute Group 1’s master. Once set up, you can press that softkey to simultaneously mute all your FX sends.

    NB you could do the above with a DCA instead of a mute group if you wanted fader control as well.
