When the OP asked about Personal Mixes, I assumed he meant the ability for individual band members to control their own monitor mix, and ONLY their own mix on their iPhones.  With the Presonus QMix app, I can assign individual band members access to their monitor mix but they can't affect anyone else's.  Some bands love this, others don't care.

I am not aware of any app besides Presonus that does exactly that.

Also - it's worth mentioning GLD has a built in Aviom card on the stagebox which could be a big value for a church where aviom is an industry favorite. All of the consoles discussed here have one or less expansion card slot, so not hanging to fill it with Aviom is a big asset.

One big difference is that the Presonus Qmix app will run on an iPhone, while A&H OneMix is iPad-only.

That's a pretty big difference!

I guess, if that is a feature that really matters to you. Doesn't look like iPhone mixing is offered by any other company.

I thought Presonus' Qmix was for controlling AUX levels (ie: musicians mixing their own monitors).  If that's indeed the case, then X32 does the exact same thing on iPhone.

If you have to purchase a device anyways and could purchase a used or more basic iPad model then is it a big difference?

As noted, the Behringer X32-Q seems to provide individual monitor mixing via the iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, but you may also want to consider that the X32, Expression, Qu-16, GLD and M-200i all directly support one or more networked personal monitor mix systems while the StudioLive does not.  Once all the related costs are tallied, for all of those other consoles a dedicated personal monitor mix system may be a more cost effective option than direct feeds to headphone amps controlled by iDevices than it would be for the StudioLive that would also need a separate monitor network interface with analog inputs.  Thus there is probably greater incentive for PreSonus to offer a monitor mix app for the StudioLive as a potential alternative to the networked personal monitor system option offered by others.

Not if you have to purchase a device anyway--but if you want to set it up so that a musician is controlling an aux mix from his/her/its device, then iPhones are a lot more common than iPads.
