    OK! I got a Mic Mechanic, and want to use it for the mains,but I want a dry monitor. I'm looking at splitters. I see a type that is all wires, and another that is a box. Any suggestions?

    If you have an extra aux send and extra input channel on your board you could do it. Mic to channel 1 with channel 1 to monitor and aux send. Aux send to MM to channel 2 with channel 2 to mains.

    The board I use is a Peavey PV20.

    so just two monitor auxes and one aux for its built-in FX.

    i vote using the splitter to send the one mic into two channels (one through the FX box first), assuming you can spare the channel.

    the XLR cable-only splitter will work fine, but a splitter in a box would be more durable.

    an inexpensive one would be one of the Galaxy audio JIB series, it is nice, I have one.
