The way an X-Rack works best is by using as many 4-Input modules as possible and a single 8-Input module. This is because you want to do the levels/pans entirely in the analog domain via the X-Rack.

The exception to this being the tracks that you do not have enough channels to individually output to the 4-Input modules. In those circumstances you would group them to a stereo output ITB and bring them up on one of the stereo pairs of the 8-Input module. That scenario is best for backing vox, keys, send effects such as reverb, delay, etc.

Unless you have at least 16 channels of D/A available (32 preferably) the X-Rack (when used for summing) will bring little to the table.
