    Install second headphone to VL3X with own mix?

    Hi Folks,
    I am relatively new to the VL3X (bought it three days ago).
    Id like to ask, if it is possible, to plug in a second headphone with its own headphone mix.
    I dont wanna use a y-dapter, maybe you can install a headphone in one of the Outputs?
    I make music with my wife and to use second headphone is necessary, when using a backing track and not connected to a PA or active Speakers at home.
    Greetings Stephan

    Hey Stephan,
    The VL3 has 2 mixes available - the "Headphone Mix" and the "Main Mix". The Mix menu is accessed by tweaking any of the four small control knobs below the screen when you're on the Home screen. Since you noted that you won't be using a PA in this situation, one of you could hijack the main XLR output (this is the "Main Mix") with some fancy cable-work for a second headphone mix. Just please be sure to turn the "XLR Out" level in the "Main Mix" tab down before trying this, as it'll be outputting pretty loudly at first.
