One of my bands has 3 vocalists and a harmonica player who all go through the 2442FX mixer

We use the AUX SEND jacks to connect to foldback monitors. The mix to each monitor is controlled by the AUX SEND controls on each channel strip

We would like to have 4 different mixes so everyone can have their own foldback mix with them turned up relative to everyone else. But the problem is that the AUX 3FX channel is taken up by a uniform mix of just the 3 vocals, which goes into the internal effects processor. This mix is not much use to any of us as a foldback mix.

So we can have 3 different foldback mixes (AUX 1, 2 and 4), but we need four. Is there any way of getting another foldback mix out of this unit?

Cheers
Mike

Mike,

Unfortunately, this model can only provide 2 "pre-fader" AUX sends for monitor mixes. AUX 1 and 2 can be set to pre fader using the PRE button. AUX 3 and 4 or both post fader, and designed for use with FX. AUX 3, is internally routed to the built in FX processor.

Check out the XL1600, XL2400, and XL3200, for the ability to have 4 pre fader monitor mixes. Also, the SX3882, and SX4882 would work. We should also mention the X32 would be the ultimate choice.

2442FX-PRO – Creating a monitor mix:
- Connect from the AUX SEND 1 jack on the mixer to the monitor amp or powered monitor input.
- Use the MON knob on each channel and the AUX SENDS 1 knob (just below the FX display) to adjust the signal level sent to the AUX SEND 1 output.

Use of the 2442FX-PRO with 2 separate monitor mixes
To use the AUX SENDS 1 and 2 for monitors:
-Press the ‘PRE’ switch on each input channel that you want to use with the monitor mix, to route the AUX sends 1 and 2 ‘pre-fader’ (so that the channel and main faders don’t affect the monitor output levels).
-Use the AUX 1 and 2 knobs on each channel and the AUX SENDS 1 and 2 knobs in the MAIN section to control the levels going to AUX SEND 1 and 2 jacks to the monitors.

One other option might be utilising the Direct Outs (which I believe are present on the first 8 channels?) If you can incorporate another small mixer to your set up you could send those Direct Outs to that and then create a monitor mix on that.

Alternatively you could get hold of a small personal monitor mixer that has the facility to send signals 'Thru' it without being affected: a Shure P4M or JTS PPM-4 will let you use it as the first point of contact for four sources and create a custom monitor mix to send out to stage monitor/IEM of your choice. Those signals then split out of the back of that to go to the main desk completely unaffected by how you mix the monitor mix on it.

Neither is ideal as it involves another mixer in the chain, but it will do what you need in creating another monitor mix.
