I have an answer for you guys that don't want to have to mute the mains and break music when you want to use IEM's to go over some music without it being heard in the mains.

On all of your IEM mixes, it is likely that you already have them set as PRE-FADER, and that's good. In that same small window that is just above the MUTE button for each mix output, there is an option to "Use LR Mute". Uncheck that. Each musician now has their own input channel MUTES which are now labeled AUX MUTE instead of MUTE. The FOH person would indeed mute the live mics and instrument channels with a mute master for convenience, but because each IEM is PRE-FADER, and is not controlled by the FOH mutes, Master Fader can do what you are wishing for. One drawback to this setup is that now the FOH person is no longer in charge of the mutes for IEMs. However.... he or she could setup a VCA that could have all IEM mix masters assigned to it, then when the FOH person hits mute on the "IEM" VCA,.... everyone's IEM gets muted.

Lot's of options   :)   

Are you speaking about Behringer

Additionally you can set up a special mute group that includes the monitors or IEM's. I've used the LR Mute unchecked before even with live monitors.

Well now, that sounds interesting....    I have a show tonight, but will play with this at the next rehearsal....    One of the boards I used at a church many years ago had a feature to unlock the channel mutes from the L+R mains mix and that allowed the band to communicate without anything going out front.   
The only problem was when someone would have floor wedge and the sound guy would mute the guitarist's channel and that floor wedge had the guitar through it still and he started wailing on some riff or changed instruments and created a pop during "the message" or something and the entire choir would jump simultaneously and exclaim in unison, sometimes profanities =)

May i chime in please.

I really loved my 1608 and now I love my DL32r even more.  I have purchased in the past two of the Behringer 16 channel digital mixers.  The last one I ditched when I discovered I couldn't leave the IEM mix running for the band when I muted the FOH for a break.

For me that was the tie breaker.

We have IEMs and it does suck to have to mute ALL the FOH, including my break music, so we can learn a song in a break =)
There has to be a better way.   Wish mute groups could be applied to FOH only, that would rock....

Isn't it the only option right now for those of us with a DL1608 or DL32?  I wait at least 6 months before doing MF updates. Let others work the bugs out first.

Nope, I've got one other option....   Get a mixer that supports Android as well as Apple, and other devices.   There are a couple options for that, and with as many iPads as I need to replace at this point in time, it would likely be cheaper to do so. =/

the newest iPad at Best Buy is $249.00.


I see absolutely no benefit in using an iPad at all.   I don't use other software on them, they simply run the MF app, that's it.
