    I’m a drummer as well as sound engineer for my band. I want to use a wired IEM as my mixer, a QU-SB sits behind me on stage. Can I connect a pair of IEM’s directly to one of the monitor outputs (with a suitable XLR to 3.5mm adapter) or do i need any kind of inline amplification ?

    Any recommendations gratefully recieved.

    You’ll need some form of amplification as the signal is only line level from the mix outs. I use a Behringer Powerplay P1 for my drummer and he loves it. Cheap and well built. I also connect just a mono mix for this, you can connect a stereo mix as well if the application absolutely has to have stereo.

    You could plug earbuds into the headphone out. I think you could route any mix into the headphone out via PAFL if i’m not mistaken. My drummers and I (play keys) are right next to the QU-SB, but we still prefer ME-1s for the immediate control of levels of the exact channels we want in our ears. Put a limiter on that mix!
