I have been using an x32 for nearly a year and I am having serious uncontrollable feedback that I am hoping someone here can help me resolve.
No matter what I do, I have not been able to figure it out. I have tried all of the normal and obvious fixes...... Mic placement, stage monitor placement, stage volume, FOH volume, FOH speaker placement, EQing out offending frequencies. Even if I completely cut out the offending frequencies AND both neighboring frequencies, feedback still occurs at those cut frequencies. Not only that, but even if I shut down all stage monitors and just run FOH, I still get feedback at extremely low volume levels.
Just to give you an idea of how low my volume limit is before feedback.......... I can't even bring my volume up loud enough for vocals to be heard over unmic'd drums! Not only that, but I have even killed all stage monitors and just ran FOH and still couldn't get vocals over unmic'd drums before feedback occurs. That's how low my threshold is before feedback!
I have tried everything and am at my wits end. I'm thinking that maybe the issue is somewhere in how I have it set up. Maybe some sort of accidental "looping" or something that I am doing wrong. I have NEVER had this issue with boards I have used in the past.
FYI..... I have a stereo EQ selected and being inserted on my main outs for FOH and I have an EQ inserted on each one of my AUX sends going to my stage monitors (these EQs take up 4 of the 8 inserts). Under this setup I am able to EQ the mains and EQ each individual stage monitor (should give me everything that I need to EQ out any offending frequencies). I am also running the remaining available 4 inserts for the usual reverb, delay, chorus.....
Does anyone have any ideas?

So you think these settings would cause feedback? What you are looking at is my faders for the effects returns set at unity (on the left) and "sends on faders" selected on the right. A vocal channel is selected and from left to right there is a touch of reverb, delay and chorus......

I noticed your FX returns are not Linked when I loaded your scene, Factory default they are Linked. What version software are you running?

I guess I'll eat some of my suggestions.
I personally discovered a loop I created by accidentally re-sending to the fx bus from the fx returns.
So for sure check for that.
Beyond that I guess you could keep the inputs and returns set to unity and adjust individual channel sends. Plenty of ways of doing it.
But check for any loops and sorry for any confusion.
