I have this fantastic Behringer Flow 8 digital mixer, that I cannot use for one missing feature: per channel post-fader monitor.
Let me explain.
The Flow 8 has 8 channels of which 4 are mono, and 2 are dual channel stereo. The stereo channels can be fed from four line-in, USB 1/2 or USB 3/4. You can also connect a Bluetooth source.
There are three mixes: main, monitor 1 and monitor 2. I connect the two monitor busses as a stereo bus, so I have two busses: main and monitor. The main mix is what I send out, the monitor mix is what I hear on my headphones. I need a mix-minus configuration, which means the monitor mix has one channel more than the main mix. This is where I listen to an audio source that I do not send out. This would be Clubhouse or any other communication software like Zoom or Teams. You do not want to loop the incoming channel back into the main mix. So far this works well.
Here is what I am missing: I cannot listen to the main mix. I do not know what I am sending out. If I fade in some background music, I do not know how loud it is on the main mix since I am listening to the monitor mix. If that monitor mix would be post fader, I could hear the music at the correct level. I could do this for every channel, except the extra one that I do not want to have in the main mix. This channel would be set to pre-fader. Even if the main fader would be down to zero, I could still hear it in the monitor mix.
This is so frustrating. This machine would be perfect if it only had this one feature. Uli Behringer, can you make this happen in a software update?
