Is there an easy way to take a single source sound (in this case a single mike on a kick drum), and route it to Two channels, say 1 and 2? In this way I can tweak punch in one channel and click in the other.

... maybe a short cord with stereo plug in the insert jack of Ch.1, with the tip and ring joined (so the sound "goes right through"), with the other end at the insert for Ch.2. ???

... maybe it can be routed internally?

You can't route anything back to a channel strip internally so your solution would function for what you are trying to do. You could also resolder a TRS and not have a cable half hanging out the back of your rig as well.

I think what Mono was saying is.. take a TRS cable and put a mono jack on the other end, in a TRS cable the tip is send and the ring is receive (on most boards) if , on the TRS side you join the tip and ring, and send that to the tip of the mono plug, (and the sleeve to the sleeve) you will be routing the signal right back to the first channel, then you can jack the signal intoo the line level of the next channel, and have 2 channels for that input.. note here that the second channel IS LINE LEVEL...but works fine.

Otherwise there is "half" jacking, and I don't like it..

Or you could get a simple XLR splitter and put it on that channel....

There is a way to do it digitally: use a subgroup as a second "channel". Subgroups also have a fatchannel...
www.plugingeluid.nl
If you can't do it like you should, you should do it like you can...

Amps: Stage Accompany 5x SA1600 + 2x SSA100, 3x Behringer DCX2496 processor,
Speakers: Stage Accompany 4x SA4528 (double 15" sub), 4x SA4537 (15" + 1" top), 2x SA4522 (12" + 1" top), 4x JBL SRX712M.
Mixer: Presonus SL24 + MacBook Pro + analog multi with 108p Harting,
Mics: Shure drumkit, SM58's, SM57's, AKG DMS70 wireless + some others.
Everything flight-cased in SA-blue cases. Heavy stuff...

Bingo.

... and another though (same concept): use the time delay feature on a subgroup to fake-double-track a vocal.

I am not sure but i mean in that case you send a ready tuned Signal ( in channel 1) to subgroup, so it isnt the same thing when you split the Signal twice before plug into console ?!

Use 2 subgroups if you want to split the clean signal...

Unfortunately, that won't work as far as I know: the delay on subgroups is only present on the physical output... If you route the subgroup to main, the delay is not on the signal path to main. To use the delay for this purpose you would need cables to route the physical output.

Nice job!
Be aware that it might not fit all doghouses, so you may have to split at the stagebox.
