I look forward to your response on the best way to give EQ, FX to all, I think I'm forced to use a shared FX across someone bus which will be OK if I use FX1 for a plate reverb just for snare/BD, FX2 for a Hall Reverb for Vocals, FX3 Delay for vocals, and only give FX1 & FX2 to buses that want FX in them but still looking forward to hear your thoughts. We use all our own Mics every gig so once we dial it in and save it as a scene this should keep the IEM mix 95% there for most shows.
Each channel strip has a 4 band parametric EQ, compressor and gate. If the sends of that channel strip is set to pre-fader all of that processing is available to that sends. But other sends (if tapped as pre-fader) has the same processing available. What than means is that the channel processing is channel strip specific, not sends specific. If you are using a low channel strip count (eg. 8 channels), you could duplicate the channel source (eg channel 1, 9, 17, 25 assigned to AES50 A1). That would provide separate channel processing per monitor mixes (eg. 4 mixes). Realistically there are very few bands with only 8 channels and 4 monitor mixes that would invest in an X32, etc. So compromizes are required.
An alternative is to use P16M that would provide separate EQ (basic) processing. Of course there are caveats to this solution (limited channel count, expense, etc.). My church uses 6 of them and love them. But we got them back in the days before David released Mixing Station (Aug 2013) and the P16 was cheaper than an iPad.
In a similar manner, the FX (reverbs, etc.) has 4 slots available and the 4 mixbuses that feed them. The return (wet) signal to each of those FX has to be shared to any monitor sends and there is no getting around that. But most pros only want a bit of reverb to cut the dryness of IEM mixes and that is all, They don't expect studio quality individual FX mix. Anyone who requires individual FX is only showing their insecurity and lack of confidence IMO.
For my band we use 24 channels of the DL32,
Then getting a second DL32 won't help for splitting purposes, since it only has 16 outputs.
I still think a good option is to get enough (3) of those rackmounted mic splitters. That way it can be added to the flight case that you have the DL32, patch in your side of the inputs (from splitters to DL32) and have a short 24 channel snake cable to patch from the splitters the house snake.

What is the best method to return the mix into a 32 channel single .wav file? [/FONT][/COLOR] A way to export/import without a utility (part B of interest in your case-to import edited DAW tracks back to the SD card.) A) X-Live SD tracks recorded (essentially exported) to a DAW while playing them back. (Both "USB-Interface" and "SD-Recording" set for 32 ch recording/playback in my case.) In X32-Edit, select the X-Live recorder GUI icon. 1) In the "Playback" section set it to "SD card" 2) In the "Channel Routing" section set it to "Recording" (NOT AUTO !!) X32-Edit mixer routing pages: 1) Select the "Inputs" tab then down at the bottom next to aux remap, set it to "Record". Now set the routing for "Card" 1-32 in groups of 8. 2) Select the "Inputs" tab then down at the bottom next to aux remap, switch it to "Playback" and set it also for "Card" 1-32 in groups of 8 (yes, the same as Record) 3) In the "Card Output" routing tab: Set all outputs to "Card" 1-32 in groups of 8 Set your DAW to record normally and enter record. Payback the sd card tracks. All SD card tracks will record to your DAW. B) DAW playback of tracks and then record (essentially import) to the SD card. In X32 Edit, select the X-Live recorder GUI icon. 1) In the Playback section set it to "USB" 2) In the Channel Routing section set it to "Recording' (NOT AUTO!!) X32 Edit routing: 1) Select the "Inputs" tab then down at the bottom next to aux remap, set it to "Record". Now set routing for "Card" 1-32 in groups of 8. 2) Select the "Inputs" tab then down at the bottom next to aux remap, switch it to "Playback" and set it also for "Card" 1-32 in groups of 8. 3) In the "Card Output" routing tab: Set all outputs to "Card" 1-32 in groups of 8 Hit SD record, hit your DAW playback. It will record your edited (or non edited) DAW tracks back to the SD card (up to 32 that is). You can keep or delete the recording as any other. Still need that utility to name the new SD recording! This is also a round about, down town and back, way to get overdubs of the SD recordings. Export SD to DAW, edit tracks, delete or replace ch's and then bring them back to the SD card. Also a way to bring DAW projects done elsewhere to your SD card. [/FONT][/COLOR][/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]
The "Recorder" window is where you have the options of checking Record, Play, or Automatic check boxes. What I think is a bug is in Routing of Input of the M32C, you have the option of selecting either Record or Play only. It allows you to click Record and select the inputs accordingly then click on Play and choosing those inputs. However, if you don't click on the Record check box prior to closing the input window and leave Play as the checked box, Automatic in the Recorder window will not work.

I created the following Bus Links (1&2), (3&4), (5&6), (7&8) and panned each of the pair hard L & R. If you manually panned the mixbuses, that means that the linking didn't happen, since they automatically hard pan L and R when linked. I would suggest you upload your scene file so that we can better advise. Here are the instructions
