Our Monday product spotlight is the Allen & Heath QU series.
"The Allen & Heath Qu Series mixing consoles have become THE industry standard for high quality, compact digital mixing systems. The Qu Series includes all the features one would expect in a digital mixer: AnalogiQ ™ accurate and transparent digitally controller channel preamps; instant per channel access to gain, HPF, 4 band PEQ, gate, compressor, graphic EQ and pan; four on-board stereo FX engines; advanced metering and RTA functions; scene store and recall – all accessible from a 5” color touchscreen. The Qu Series has an integrated multitrack USB recorder, providing 18 channels of 48kHz, 24bit recording and playback straight to / from your USB key or hard drive.
One Qu Series product feature has become increasingly useful during these “distance collaboration” and “work from home” times. The Qu Series digital mixers have a built-in audio interface that streams up to 32 selectable tracks (model dependent) to your Mac or PC and returns from the computer can be easily assigned to the Input channels. The interface is class-compliant on Mac OS X making it truly plug ‘n play and will be recognized straight away by any DAW supporting Core Audio, including Logic, Cubase, Reaper, and Pro Tools. An ASIOTM and WDM compatible driver is available for Windows computers.
Capturing good audio for web streaming is not always easy, particularly with multiple inputs. With the Qu Series, users can connect the mixer directly to their computer to transmit high quality audio from multi-mic setups directly to their favorite web conferencing or web streaming app. The on-board EFX, dynamics and equalization tools will allow the user to produce high quality audio content for any web broadcast."- SK Macdonald, Inc.
