Product description for QU Series Digital Mixer

If your a sound engineer who is used to analog mixers where there is a knob or button available for every key feature, then you are going to love the QU Series digital mixers from Allen & Heath.

We have tried other digital mixers where the manufacturers have hidden key fader controls on so called "layers" - with the QU series sound desks you can simply reach out and touch the channel controls.

Of course, there is much more digital technology available should you need it, accessible through intuitive menus on the LCD screen.

Features that we have found really useful when working with churches and schools include:
  • Password protected user profiles preventing access to features where required
  • Preset settings for services / school events
  • Remote control via iPad app
At live events the QU Series digital mixers make an excellent production sound mixer with the ability to recall a mix at the push of a button, and the ease of use of the allen & heath digital snake system to connect to stage boxes.

The QU range from Allen & Heath offers an integrated solution for all your digital audio requirements

The QU Range from allen & Heath includes mixers, remote audio racks, computer DAW control, personal mixes, iPad control and eq presets for popular mics

Key Features of the Allen & Heath QU Series Digital Mixers

Low noise mic pre-amps

The electronics that take the analog signals from your microphones have been custom engineered for Allen & Heath, they offer superb 24bit digital conversion and audio clarity. This ensures the result is a a warm, musical sound that is missing from some digital consoles

The Mixing Experience

We have already said how much we like the QU Series mixers, to work with a channel you can simply move the channel fader to control its level, by doing so the dedicated physical controls for  gain, HPF, 4 band PEQ, gate, compressor, GEQ and pan recognise the channel instantly. You can also select the channel at the push of a button at the top of each channel without changing the levels.

The The 800×480, True Colour Touchscreen and its dedicated rotary encoder provide super fast access to all the digital technology packed into the QU mixer such as outputs, groupings, time delays for outputs, usb recording and much more besides.

Instant digital recall

One of the features that make the QU series excellent production sound mixers is their
ability to save and instantly recall up to 100 mix snapshots (scenes) to instantly recall all the settings for each channel. You can also optionally protect channels of mixes from being overwritten.

Simply press the recall button and the motorised faders return to their recorded position ready for you to adjust if required.

QU-Drive

 The built in multi-track recorder allows you to record any stereo mix output plus up to 16 individual mono mixes, so you can record your live performances while concentrating on the live mix and remix your 16 tracks later in your studio for podcast or CD.

Automatic Mic Mixing

The ability to set up automatic mic mixing can be very useful where there is no sound engineer to constantly monitor the mix, for example a school assembly or church service.

Each channel selected for automatic mixing has its priority and gain set, ensuring that each mic can be heard in the overall mix

WiFi connectivity

By connecting a secure WiFi router to your mixers network port the sound engineer can walk round the venue with their iPad and the QU-APP to adjust any mixer setting. 

Performers on stage can use any android or IoS device to create their own personal mix without disturbing the sound engineer who is concentrating on the main mix.
