And do not depress the switch which routes the groups (which you are now using for FX sends) to the main L/R bus.  Right, Adam?


HAHA! Not even joking Dick I just woke up from sleeping thinking "OH CRAP I FORGOT TO MENTION THE ST BUTTON ON THE GROUPS!" and had to turn my computer on again to check quick.

Yes. make sure the ST button is not clicked in/sending to the Stereo for this to work right. I'm going to edit my directions up farther.



Dude!!!  We gotta get us some life!!!

Lol thanks guys. I dont normally need 4 monitor mixes, just this case (for now), so atleast it will get the job done. I am borrowing the board from a friend for this gig and thought that  Aux 4 could be switched between pre/post fader. But I guess thats not the case. How will this effect the 4th mon mix? How can I remedy it, or atleast make it bearable?

Art, I cant wait to get that board off of you.

Every adjustment of a channel fader will also alter that input in the post-fader aux mix. There's no practical way to make it bearable other than not altering your main mix for the show. Musicians need a stable reference, not something that shifts as you adjust for the audience's needs.

Why are you not using your MG24/14FX?  That mixer has sufficient auxes.

I dont have an MG24...I only have the MG16. This MG20 is a friends, but I'm going to try to use a friends MixWiz. I am getting a Mackie SR24 from Art in the next few weeks, just need something for the time being.

Problem solved, borrowing a MixWiz. Easy fix.

use groups

take a (post fader) group out into the fx unit, and return to a channel as normal

assign whatever channels you want to go to the effect to the group

it's not as neat and tidy as an aux send, but it'll get the job done and at least let you control both the input and output level going to and from the fx unit
