    Howdy. What's the best way to get individual submixes for everyone on stage? I suppose there's two kinds, the simpler kind where you can mix yourself versus the rest of the monitor mix, and the complex kind where you can individually raise or lower everyone's channel in your own submix.

    I don't see a lot of products for this, and I don't see a lot of people talking about it, but when I think about it, it seems to be highly desirable.

    You need a mixer with an appropriate number of pre-fade aux sends.

    That's all that I could think of, so cool. But then everything has to be mixed at the mixer, eh? In the middle of the gig, you can't turn down the keyboard and turn up the second singer without walking over to it?

    Right. That's what soundcheck is for.

    Aviom would be the answer.

    It can be done (usually done as a digital send over ethernet), but the problem is that musician usually end up spending too much time tweaking their mix on stage. Even if I have the option to send everyone everything, I usually only send a stereo mix and a more me knob. Keeps the musicians focused on playing.
