I'm the original post Justin DOES make it sound like he was having trouble making the gates transparent(hence the problem with the drummers IEMs) so I can see where Scott was coming from in his post. If the gates couldn't be heard there wouldn't be a problem.
In any case there isn't a reason to jump on Scott(or anyone else). I'm sure that Scott has much more time on the x32 than me, most of my mixing is on an analog mixer; I just looked it up in the manual.

Fair enough, I apologize if I misinterpreted his intentions and maybe Justin did as well, and maybe he did not. I can't speak for him but I can see how he could have read into the reply and now in retrospect I see how Scott may have misinterpreted the OP or simply took it the way it sounded to anyone who does not know the how picky that drummer is with his mix.
I read the reply wrong, It said "spend more time setting the gates properly.." which I thought he was saying to spend time learning how to set gates, but clearly it means try to set the gate so the drummer can't tell they exist. Which makes some sense until you get a drummer that wants to hear endless head ring that must must be gated out of the house mix for sure, which is the problem with a PITA drummer, which BTW I can't feel too sorry for Justin having to deal with a drummer's shit for the simple fact that before he started in sound he was a playing in bands he was the drummer.
whether or not he was a PITA for the soundman to please don't matter, he was the drummer.........
