Is it possible to include the option to split these into 2 separate channels with independent routing?
I understand there is limited EQ and no dynamics on these inputs, but for use as a talk-back channel or a mono music playback this would not matter.
If the hardware wont allow this, could someone from Behringer kindly just explain this, and people will understand why it cant be done.

...taking a look at the XR18 block diagram it definitely shows that the line inputs on XR18 are combined before even going through the A/D conversion process. I'll attach a pic below.
For that reason, splitting each channel into separate inputs will not be possible without a significant hardware change. Bottom line, it's best to use AUX in as a stereo pair or use one of the other input channels to bring in mono sources.

Sure, there's the normalling switch in the Right jack to make the other one Left/Mono (mono feeds both ADC channels through right's switch), but beyond that, it's all software right? (or more accurately, firmware)

My point was that they can't be split because the signal on LINE IN 17/18 is already combined before the A/D process. That's a hardware limitation and can't be altered by firmware.
Forgot to attach the pic in my last post...

While you can't split the ch 17/18 stereo pair, or apply dynamics to the channel pair, you can use the inputs separately to feed any of channels 1-16.
So, for example, ch 1 can be fed from input 17 and ch 2 from input 18. This obviously uses up 2 regular mic channels, though - and you can't map any other inputs to ch 17/18 - though you might choose to use a USB input pair?
