I have an SL32 with 32R and often times use this as a straight forward use on band concert performances where I would mix for both

monitor and FOH mix. I have been getting gigs lately where the bands were bringing their own Monitor Tech or engineers and would like to do the mixing themselves beside the band. Some were opposed to using the ipad or computer to control the monitors and would want to have a console. I would like to purchase an SL24 if this is possible. Any help or video tutorial is appreciated.

Thanks, Ed

You can add any of the Series III consoles and rack mixers as monitor mixer and two units is not the limit. Important is that one of the mixers (FOH) is the "clock" of the network in order to make network presets (Stagebox Mode, Monitor Mixer Mode and Stand Alone Mode) function properly.

PreSonus has a lot of helpful information. There are two special manuals, which you can find in the download area of your mixer(s):

StudioLive_Series_III_AVB_Networking_Guide_EN_11092018
StudioLive_Series_III_Stagebox_Mode_Addendum_V5_EN_25032019

And there are several Technical Articles (partly with texts from the manuals):

A combination of two consoles and one rack mixer will need an AVB switch (SW5E). The NSB stageboxes have built-in AVB splitters.
