I am looking to run an X32 for monitor console but need more buses for fx. I'm trying to find a way I can use the L/R and M/C buses for reverbs on drums and vocals so that I can keep mix buses 1-16 as 8 stereo pairs for the band's IEMs.
My idea isn't working thus for. Here's how I've tried...
Vocals 1-4 at unity for L/R bus
Snare/Tom at unity for M/C bus
L/R at unity sent post fader to Matrix 1/2
M/C at unity sent post fader to Matrix 5/6
Matrix 1/2 has an insert Hall Verb (FX 1 L/R)
Matrix 5/6 has an insert Plate Verb (FX 2 L/R)
Using Sends on Fader (SOF) the FX 1-2 L/R channels (in the Aux Section) get sent to the Mix Buses 1-16 (IEM mixes)
Everything including FX Returns, L/R and M/C bus, and Matrices are at unity. I can even solo the FX 1 and 2 L/R channels and hear the effects in all their glory; however, none of the mix buses 1-16 can hear them in the IEMs...
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong? I would be so thankful for your help...

How about using the L/R bus or a matrix send as a stereo IEM feed and free up 2 of the Mix Bus sends for the FX?

The method described in your first post would work if you route Matrix 1/2 and 5/6 to Aux outputs, and bring them back in via Aux inputs (physically, with patch cables). A bit of latency would be added but for IEM reverb that should be fine.
Just be careful not to assign the utilized Aux inputs to the LR or M/C bus (feedback loop).
