RE: no repeater wet/dry mix?


I am not understanding what you are referring to as causing feedback
issues?  Isn't the aux return bus summed with the main outs on most
mixers?  I have a Mackie 1202 VLZ that I use.  Granted, if the return is
coming back to a channel then that channel would in turn begin the
endless loop into feedback, but I always thought the aux bus returned to
the main mix, after inserts and effects so as to not add more effects to
the effects.  Am I wrong, or maybe misunderstanding what your definition
is?  I certainly don't want to set up my routing incorrectly.
