Default MTRX/DADMAN output to multiple Spkr Outputs simultaneously with same stereo source?

I have scoured software/manuals to figure out how to create a "party mode" where I can output a stereo source to multiple stereo monitor destinations. Sources can be summed, but Spkrs appear to only be switched? Has anyone figured out how to do this? To be clear, for normal monitoring, I would only be using one set of monitors, but there are listening situations where I would like to fire up all the monitors just for fun. Has anyone done this - or have any idea how to make it work?


BTW, unrelated. If anyone is interested, I have created a "virtual MOM" device that allows you to have MIDI control over any of the functions that MOM can map to. I did this because I have 14 sources and I wanted to create a set of dedicated buttons for all 14 sources (and of course MOM only gives you three on a single layer). With MIDI control, one can use just about anything to access these functions - this would allow you to use Keyboard Maestro and a Streamdeck to create a new "MOM" device.



MTRX/DADMan and DAD MOM is a crazy powerful audio routing/monitor setup. The more I use it, the more I find it can do. It is amazing.

I have the same setup and this might be a good question for Jeff Komar Avid Product Specialist who helped me out a lot.. I have a 7.1.4 room coming online from my 5.1 room after I have all of the plans updated and waiting on some days to actually get it up and installed. All the gear is here now.

2 ways I can think of:

1st option
Create a single speaker set (custom) with all your speakers. Then create a fold down matrix (custom) that sends L input to all the “left” speakers and “R” input to all “right speakers”. You can adjust the balance discrepancies between sets of speakers from the fold down level being sent to each. For your day-to-day, create “fold downs” for each set where input ONLY goes to one set.

Then you can flip between fold downs. Label fold downs accordingly.

2nd option
Create multiple monitors in ProMon. Your input sets and output sets already created are recallable as you build each monitor group. Each monitor acts independently so you can enable the same input on each and adjust levels out on each (but now each monitor goes to a different speaker set).
Mute/disengage non main monitor group when not in use.

I do a version of the 1st with my surround setup to send stereo to all (but all my speakers are already in a set)

I’d be interested in seeing your virtual MOM that’s midi based. Do you have that downloadable anywhere?

Is this Virtual MOM standalone or you need to have real MOM as well?

There's also a rogue app floating about the app store:

BScout has the exact idea. Here's what I would do:

I'm still (nominally) maintaining it, any issues send to app support (one word) at lukktone dot com.

Just my 2 cents; this is something I would never do because of all the phase and timing issues inherent in running multiple speakers with the same sound. I guess its 30+ years of live sound(IOW, this has way more chance of sounding bad than good)
