    2 S16 + x32 rack(for monitors) + FOH X32 how to connect

    Hi, We have a show coming with 2 bands.
    The first band is connected to a X32 rack and they use it for their in ears monitor.
    The 2nd band will connect to my second S16 (input 17 to 32) and I will provide them 2 Bus return output for Wedge monitors + output 15/16 for the main output.

    I need to connect the following:
    On stage, Two S16 (may be I need only one S16 since the 1st band has their own X32 rack ?) all this goes to the FOH X32.

    Any idea how to make the setting on the X32 rack and the FOH X32 so i can mix both bands on the FOH X32 ?
    thanks
    Jack

    Hi Jacques,

    Welcome to the forum. I would suggest the following:

    Interconnectivity mapping
    FOH X32 [B] <-> [A] X32 Rack [B] <-> [A] S16 [B] <-> [A] S16

    On the X32 Rack, use the Routing AES50-a and AES50-b banks of 8 to transfer the signals through the Rack from/to FOH and the 2 S16

    Routing, AES50-a (to FOH)
    * Outputs 1-8 -> Local 1-8
    * Outputs 9-16 -> Local 9-16
    * Outputs 17-24 -> AES50 B1-8
    * Outputs 25-32 -> AES50 B9-16

    Routing, AES50-b (to S16)
    * Outputs 1-8 -> AES50 A1-8
    * Outputs 9-16 -> AES50 A9-16

    On the FOH
    Routing, home
    * Inputs 1-8 -> AES50 B1-8
    * Inputs 9-16 -> AES50 B9-16
    * Inputs 17-14 -> AES50 B17-24
    * Inputs 25-32 -> AES50 B25-32

    Routing, Out 1-16
    * Output 01 -> Mixbus 01 (post fader)
    * Output 02 -> Mixbus 02 (post fader)
    ...
    * Output 07 -> Main L (post fader)
    * Output 08 -> Main R (post fader)

    Routing, AES50-b
    * Outputs 1-8 -> Out 1-8
    * Outputs 9-16 -> Out 9-16
