I'm a corporate audio guy. Doing a simple music gig.

1 Vocal Mic

2 mics on a piano

Track playing off of a laptop.


Using Aux 1 as a monitor send to a small wedge for the singer. No issues with routing vocals, piano and track to the Aux.

My issue is the dry vocal signal coming out of the Aux.

How do I route the wet vocal signal to the Aux?

Or how do I apply FX to the Aux send?

I am not using ANY external FX. Only on board FX.

Thanks in advance.

The same as on the main mix. Check if your FX return A, B, C or D is at a proper level in your aux mix. Otherwise you won't hear the same effects as on your main mix.

Don' forget your FX sends are post (main mix) faders. So in worst case, if you set all channels in your main mix to minimum, you won't hear FX on your AUX mixes, even if the channel faders and the FX returns are on in your AUX mix. The FX sends remain dependent off the main mix, not your aux mix. You can change that by setting the FX mixes to pre fader, but that's very annoying for the main mix.
