So in your case, use 1, 2 , 3 and 4 (if needed), for the foldback monitors (with 3/4 set pre-fade), and 5/6 for the external effects sends.

I'm in York, so depending on where you are in EY possibly not that far away.
I'm a long way short of the expertise of people like Mike, Sam, Wonks and Hugh but I'm pretty good with a manual so happy to meet up sometime and work through a few things if that would help.

Brilliant! :thumbup: :clap: thanks Drew. I'd take up the offer -- having someone talk you through things in front of the desk can be really beneficial.

:thumbup: No worries, feel free to PM me or let me know when you're next getting the desk out for anything and pending life getting in the way, I'll see if I can swing by. :)

If you're not a good manual reader, then take a few hours to have some "personal time" with your desk. Just the two of you, accompanied by either a mic plugged in, or a simple pre-recorded source, a pair of headphones and/or a simple active speaker. That way, you can play to your heart's content and really learn what all the controls and I/O do, listening to the signal at various outputs.

Even if you are a manual reader, there's nothing to beat practise to help get to grips with features, and to confirm whether or not they work like you expect them to.

Funny enough i did just that i spent a full day with the Mixwizard WZ3 yesterday hooked everything i needed up couple of reverbs & an old minidisc player & did some serious investigating & it payed off things are making much more sense to me now it's not nearly as complex as i was thinking but it has taken some time to get my head around the routings it seems there are many ways of routing things on the mix wizard but i reckon i have it covered now.one thing i discovered though i can use ST5 & ST6 for ext fx but 6 doesn't route to the monitor via aux so i'll have to use say ST1 if i want fx on the stage monitors ,also looks like i have a couple of sunk faders that need fixing so i may have to take the board in for a service to A&H Thanks everyone for the support :)
