    How about using DCA’s and reducing the volume on the specific DCA that you want silent?

    The DCA trick is fine if you don’t push FX through the monitors

    Thanks all. We need to send pastor’s mic to monitors. Acoustic or keys/piano often noodle or hold a pad under the spoken vocal for ambience and need to be able to hear phrasing and cues. The band typically tries to remember to quickly dial down the headset mic before a song starts. My perfect world would be to have the monitor send follow the FOH mute switch, but not be a global setting to all channels.

    I like the idea of just making the monitor send post fader. Trying to look on the Editor software for how that would be accomplished? (again, exclusively this one channel). Thanks in advance.

    Does mute not mute all outputs?

    I’ve got turned around by this thread…

    Bob, I’m getting confused too, but I think it’s the direct outs going to the ME units that do not get muted. The pe/post mute option for these is universal but Tabruder want this channel to behave differently to the rest.

    Tabruder – Do you have a spare mix output? If so, can you patch this (with a cable, in the analogue world) to a spare input, which the ME users can then get the pastor’s mic from?

    I don’t have an ME so can’t try it, but it looks as if that would do what you want.

    Don’t have a ME, but can’t you choose Mixes directly on the ME? At least Groups and Mixes are assignable through the Monitor Output Patch.

    I expected it to be able to use the mixes (and any other output that’s being sent via D-Snake), but if it can, I can’t find, anywhere in the manual that tells you how……

    Feature request! πŸ˜‰

    Well, it’s on page 66, chapter “10.15 I/O Patch Setup – Monitor” in The Manual. πŸ˜‰

    Ha. Now I remember reading that. However, for some reason, I was looking at the ME manual.

    So as long as there’s a mix free, that’s sorted it!

    Hey guys, thanks for all the input. Being new and poorly orientated here, I just realized I’m in the QU forum. Didn’t catch where I was routed to in my initial search. I’ll check if anyone has asked about this specifically over in the GLD forum where I belong, or pose the question there. Still useful ideas for getting tricky with an extra DCA, so you helped me, but I apologize to those I sidetracked…

    we just put the LR on a soft key so it can be muted without muting mixes. just like Mixes are on a soft key as a Mutegroup and all vocals are on one and all instruments are on one.
