Best practice: Mixing from the stage

asked Jun 25, 2019 in StudioLive Series III by garyjorgenson (160 points)
We use a StudioLive Series III 16ch along with a StudioLive 32R in stagebox mode (for expansion with small footprint). I'm the drummer and we mix from the stage. Other band members access the mixer directly, where I access it using a laptop and USB.

I use Shure in-ear monitors and have an AUX channel for my preferred mix.   Is there a way that I can switch back and forth between my AUX mix and the MAIN outputs to hear what's going to FOH?

I considered just plugging my wireless into the headphone output on the mixer, but then I lose my AUX mix.

"In addition to the main outputs, your StudioLive mixer features a set of monitor outputs and a headphone jack, each with its own distinct signal path. While you can use these outputs to listen to the main mix, you can also assign other signals to them, such as Aux mixes, the solo bus, or the tape input. This allows easy monitoring of your choice of signals as you work, while the full mix continues to flow from the main outputs."
