IMHO, the only way to insure you are getting the signal right is to use the monitor out of your main recording medium into your 2-mix console. This way you are monitoring the track from your main source, you are not skyrocketing the impedance of the line as you do with a two-way or three-way passive (hardwire) split, and it does not require an active or transformer-balanced split simply BETWEEN the truck and everyone else (as often I am taking a X-former split between monitors and FOH consoles). I think Steve said this a hundred times, and I will quote him (I hope accurately): "Get the best transformers you can afford, you may have to use them some time!" Great pearls of wisdom. Cheers-
