I’m contemplating buying a Behringer XR18 for the band as I’m fed up of struggling with only two Aux Sends that are pre-fader and just one that is post. I could modify the mixer so all four Aux Sends were pre-fader but that’s a lot of work on a monolithic SMD board and it won’t solve my bigger problem of being constantly asked to “turn x up and y down in my ears” by everyone every ten minutes.
I’ve read that some folk use digital mixers live that give everyone the ability to control their own IEM mixes from their mobile phones. This sounds ideal for me, but I’m concerned that the phone app interface might be too ‘fiddly’ for some in my band. I have a hard enough time pointing out the Aux Send knobs on the mixer as it is. If the phone app is anything more complex than a simple row of knobs or sliders I’m never going to sell the idea to them.
Could anyone advise please ? Ta.
