Allen & Heath's QU harnesses the full potential of digital mixing technology, with total recall of settings (including the all-important fader position and preamp gain), convenient recording and playback solutions, iPad control, personal monitoring options and the choice of local or remote Cat5 I/O.
Allen & Heath Qu Digital Mixers
Qu-16, Qu-24 and Qu-32 feature 16, 24 and 32 motorized ALPS faders respectively, arranged over 2 layers, allowing instant access to all channels and masters in a compact space, plus a dedicated master fader which dynamically follows the mix selection. A third, Custom layer is available for ad-hoc user strip layout, where any combination of Inputs, FX Sends, FX Returns, Mix masters and MIDI strips can be assigned.
Automatic Mic Mixer (AMM)
AMM is vital in applications such as conferences, meetings and panel discussions where a number of microphones are open at the same time. Reducing background noise and minimising the risk of feedback, the Automatic Microphone Mixer helps the engineer to manage the levels of multiple mic inputs, ensuring that each speaker’s contribution is heard clearly. The D-Classic dynamic gain sharing algorithm is inspired by industry standard automixers. Up to 16 microphone sources can be mixed at once, with each channel having a priority setting which determines its ‘weight’ in the total system gain.
True digital mixing is about being able to save and recall scenes (snapshots) at the press of a button. Qu can store up to 100 full Scenes for recall at will. Channels and mixes can be made Safe from Scene recall.
Qu In The Studio
Qu mixers can sit at the heart of your studio and double as a tracking desk, audio interface and DAW controller. The built-in USB interface can handle up to 32×32 channels full-duplex of high quality 24bit 48kHz audio. MIDI control is tunnelled over the USB connection and the Custom layer can be populated with MIDI strips for direct assignment or ‘learning’ of faders and Mute, Sel and PAFL keys in the DAW.
Made from 18 gauge, cold-rolled Zintec steel, QU’s distinctive frame is designed for strength and rigidity. Silence is a precious commodity in the live or studio environment, which is why nobody wants those moments of stillness ruined by whirring coming from the mix position. QU’s sleek profile generates optimal airflow through the mixer, eliminating the need for any fans.
