    Hello all

    I am in quite a unique situation that I am both technician AND backing vocalist.

    I have 2 questions regarding this.

    1. Is it possible to “fixate” the head phone output to a monitor mix, so I don’t have to switch from L/R (FOH) to my monitor group, losing possible Talk Back (as that is only sent to monitor mix).
    I suspect the answer is no, and I can only use a separate output in the back with a head phone amp, use a second in-ear or so. But it is worth tryhing.

    2. More importantly. My head-set mic is on local channel 4. I also assigned talk back to that mic, but now have to mute myself on L/R to avoid talkback being heard over the FOH. Is is possible to make/program some kind of toggle? So that when I push the TALK, it mutes the mic for FOH? Would be nice if that is possible if a mic AND talkback are assigned on the same channel.
    Or is there a better workaround? And then not having to use 2 microphones, because that I can figure out 😉

    Thanks guys!

    Regards

    Mike

    Maybe an external XLR selector foot switch would to select where you mic output
    is routed to.
    Something like this……https://www.whirlwindusa.com/products/black-boxes-effects-and-dis-miclineinst-switchers-selector-xl

    With a creative foot switch you could use the SQ’s internal foot switch option
    to control muting your mic channel and activating the talk back mode.
