Can understand that. Which is one reason i always like
instruments to control their volume to blend with each
other, and in some cases such as keys get the signal
independent of their stage amplification.

SHould be easy enough, especially if she's using more than
one board, or module. even if not, should be easier to
control her stage volume, and still give you what you need
Only reason I had to turn up on stage is the usual volume
creep of weekend warriors as the gig went on. But, my
levels to foh never had to change this way.
HOpe you can get her controlled without the fight. I always liked to have full control of my dynamics, because I
actually play with them because that's appropriate.
