I didn’t find anything on this specifically. I’m trying to get effects through my aux channels that are being monitored by the earmix 16.  I get effects through the mains. I’ve selected my flex mix and then selected the channel I want effects then scrolled to the effects channel and set it to unity. Still hearing none of the effects through the aux.  using a studio live series 3 24 channel board

FX Return's are NOT available to be sent over AVB Sends. The FX Send is, but because the FX Send is pre-FX Engine, it contains a dry signal. This is by design, to allow external FX / DSP Processors via AVB Send Return structure.

What you can do is say use a Flex Mix and send nothing but the FX to that channel. Then change the AVB send to that flex mix.

So have Flex Mix 16 with just the FX going to it. In digital patching change the on of the AVB channels that you are sending to the Earmix to be that 

  • So if you are sending you EarMix AVB sends 1-8 and 8-16.
  • Setup Mix 16 to have just FX sent to it
  • Go to Digital Patching, AVB Sends and set AVB 16 as Mix 16 
  • This now means that button 16 on the EarMix will just be FX that can be dialled in to taste.
