M32 FOH and M32R for monitors with a DL32

I'm not sure if someone already asked but I'm trying to accomplish the following:

I have (2) M32's, (1) M32R and a (2) DL32's. I can accomplish what i need with an analog split and (2) DL32's but want to use AES50 with a single DL32.

I would like to use (1) DL32 on stage with a M32 at FOH and a M32R at monitors.  I would like the M32R monitor console to have gain control and the FOH to have digital trim. 

Is it possible to have XLR outputs 1-12 on the DL32 routed from the M32R for 12 analog monitor mixes and AES outputs 13-14 on the back of the DL32  from the FOH console M/C and AES outputs 15-16 on the back of the DL32 from the FOH console L/R mains. 

My current setup is a M32 with a DL32 for FOH and montors with 12 analog montor mixes and AES 13/14 for M/C and AES 15/16 for L/R Mains.  If this will work, i may purchase a M32C to replace the M32R as my monitor console.

Thank you

I would suggest you keep the M32R for the monitors for the main reason that it isn't easy to split a bank of 8 to the DL16. But you can split the XLR's on the back of a console (Routing, XLR Out screen are in banks of 4). Therefore you could route the Main L/R and subs from FOH  to the back of the M32R and route the monitor outputs to the DL16.

 

In order to split the bank of 8 to the DL16, you first have to bring the FOH outputs into the M32R (eg. using the Aux In Remap), then blend that with M32R outputs (eg. 9-12) on the Routing, Out 1-16 screen in order to make up the bank of 8 to assign to the AES50 output to the DL16. As you can see the other way (explained above) is much easier.
