Hello together
I am new to the StudioLive 32SC and trying to figure out the best way to do InEar-Monitoring-Mixes for Worship. We had just one monitor-output for everything on our analog mixing console.

So I route an Aux Mix to the output on the stage box an plug in the InEar-Amp. This Mix should contain the Fat-Channel-Processing, so I set it to "Aux Pre Mode" Pre 2. But then there is also a "Digital Send" on the overview screen of the Mix.

So what is the difference between this Pre DSP and the other Pre 2 and also the "Digital Send" Post Fader vs "Aux Pre Mode" Post? Which is the correct one that the musicians can control it with Qmix and still has compressor and EQ? And I mean wouldn't it just bypass the "Aux Pre Mode" if I set it to Pre DSP?

And related to this, for my Matrix-Mix to the broadcast is no such option of Pre DSP, so I took also Pre 2 for this Matrix-Mix, but I can't hear any difference on the broadcast between Pre 1 and Pre 2..

I grab this from the manual:

Pre 1: Sends each channel to the Aux bus after the polarity invert, high-pass filter, and gate.

Pre 2: Sends each channel to the aux bus after all Fat Channel processing (polarity invert, high-pass filter, gate, compressor, EQ, and limiter) but before the fader.
