    Another option to DCA are groups, we use this for certain things like our orchestra, the advantage is the individual channel can be muted nobody hears it, most people have the group in their IEM so the group in muted no one hears it, but the individual can add their own channel to their ME and only they would hear it.

    My main runs from FOH to stage are all Cat5e STP as recommended but I believe all our on stage cables are regular Cat5 patch cables that we had from our old Aviom system and we have no problems.

    When we first installed our GLD we only got 3 ME 1s because of budget, we still had our Aviom system so we ran Aviom mode at first to get enough mixers for our band.
    We were able to compare them side by side, the MEs are much cleaner and robust according to all our musicians and tech crew that compared them.
    We now have all ME1s and love the ability to have all inputs available at each station using groups.

    I agree the QU drive is an easy option but if old habits means they want to record on the PC, no problem the QU is an interface just plug in the USB cable and load the drivers and use your program of choice, I like reaper for multi track recording.

    I know this is a little late but, I have a few (6 I think) 4 channel mic splitters for sale. 😉
    Also you could mix the monitors from an iPad.

    A way to watch the RTA and adjust the PEQ is to use an iPad the make the adjustments.

    Cat5 is cheap, can’t you keep a dedicated line and avoid all the headaches.
    When we talked about purchasing our GLD112 I pulled three dedicated Cat5e shielded cables between FOH and the stage(140 feet), then another to what was our TV room from FOH (80 feet) just in case we want to record remotely via Dante.
    IMHO that was easier and cheaper than the mess you have to deal with.

    While I agree that setup won’t work, it isn’t because they don’t coexist on the same cable, they do.
    But the AR84 is not designed with that in mind. However both the AR2412 and the AB168 have a monitor capable port on them so you can go from mixer to stage box to ME-1 with no problems.

    It is just the return of FX8 assigned to whatever channel you choose.
    Some people like a dryer signal they can turn down the FX.

    Clocks don’t need to be slaved for it to work, I’ve connected multiple boards together many times.
    It won’t work as one mixer but the output of one can be patched into the other for one master control of levels.
    Usually inserting the the main output of one into a sub mix or channel of the other, the stereo inputs for example.
    Even the monitors can be included if patched correctly into that aux.

    If you are using a laptop, try unplugging the power supply and check for the noise. Many switching power supplies cause harmonic interference with audio.

    Other than that, are the trim settings too high? That can cause noise.

    Anyone else have suggestions?

    Yes you can, just assign the FX out you want to the ME in the IO tab.

    It also depends on what mode the ME1 is in. They don’t have to follow the same layout you have in the IO section they can reprogram the ME to have what they want from whatever you make available in the IO screen(40 channels to choose from).
    In the default mode the ME 1 will assign the first 16 channels in the IO to the keys. but you can also assign groups on the ME and have multiple inputs under one key. For more info see the ME manual starting at pg 21-24.

    As for the IO screen set ME1 mode then choose an output and at the bottom assign what goes there, usually ‘input direct out’ then the channel number in start then hit apply.

    For smaller gigs many use the QU series, they have several that are rack mountable, and because a couple have limited to no surface control (QU Pak, QU SB) so the iPad app is more fully functional.

    I agree this would be very useful.
