In the studio, the Qu-16 supplies the tools and the powerful effects engines you need to create polished, professional tracks. During live shows and rehearsals, the Qu-16 lets you record and play back multitrack audio to and from a USB hard drive; it also gives you the flexibility to step away from the unit and adjust your mix from afar with the Qu-Pad app on your iPad. This Allen & Heath digital mixer takes the features and technology of the company's other high-end digital consoles and mixing systems, and packs them into a compact unit that's as versatile as it is affordable.
Intuitive Interface for Easy Mixing Access all settings in a flash via the rackmountable Qu-16's color touchscreen and dedicated data encoder. User-friendly keys and screen tabs make it easy to navigate what the mixer has to offer, guiding you through meter and RTA views, FX racks, channel processing, USB audio control, scenes, setup menus, and more.
One-Stop Processing Shop There's no learning curve here. Designed to be intuitive to use, the Qu-16 puts essential controls right where you want them. Processing tools are located on the SuperStrip, which has one function per physical control. You can delve further into the processing parameters by touching the onscreen Touch Channel. For Mono and Stereo inputs, you have trim, polarity, HPF, gate, insert, 4-band PEQ, compressor, and delay. Likewise, the main LR and the Mono mixes have controls for Insert, 1/3 octave GEQ, compressor, and delay. The Stereo mixes provide Insert, 4-band PEQ, compressor, delay, and balance control.
Ever-Useful Fader Automation Quick mixing, here we come. Thanks to the Qu-16's motorized faders, you can work without breaking a sweat, no matter how many monitor mixes you have going on at the same time -- just press a mix key and the faders immediately fly to the send levels for that monitor mix. Overall, the Qu-16 sports 17 motorized ALPS faders; that's 16 faders arranged over 2 layers for immediate access to all channels and masters in a compact space, along with a dedicated master fader that follows the mix selection. You have the option of using a third, Custom layer to make your own kind of user strip layout, where any combination of Inputs, FX Sends, FX Returns, and Mix masters can be assigned.
AnalogiQ Preamps Sixteen AnalogiQ total recall preamps are onboard the Qu-16, with zero-crossing detection and an advanced padless 1 dB step gain stage that works hand in hand with the DSP to deliver total gain accuracy and audio transparency. Low-latency, high-quality 24-bit A/D/D/A converters capture the audio signal.
Total Recall What's one of the best parts about digital mixing? Total recall. The Qu-16 makes it easy for you to save and recall scenes with just one touch. Store up to 100 full scenes for recall. No matter what scenes you recall, your channels, mixes, and other settings will remain "safe." If, for example, a microphone or instrument gets swapped out after the sound check, the channel can be made safe to avoid settings being overridden by scene recalls.
You can save custom settings for each EQ, compressor, channel, or FX as Library presets, ensuring that your favorite settings are there when you need them. What's more, you can save libraries, scenes, and even a complete show configuration to a USB key, and take all your settings with you to any show equipped with a Qu-16.
Tour-Worthy iLive FX The four stereo iLive FX engines feature impressive emulations of legendary classic reverbs, gated reverbs, delays, modulators, flangers, and so forth. If you ever outgrow the current selection of effects, rest assured that the Qu-16's FX library will always grow with future firmware releases. Each Stereo FX Return has a dedicated 4-band PEQ, and for your convenience, effects are returned to the mix on dedicated return channels, so you won't have to tie up your mono and stereo input channels.
Do It All on the Qu-16: Stream, Playback, and Record Enjoy streaming multitrack audio to your Mac channel 1 to 16, the Main LR mix, and 3 selectable stereo pairs.
Using the Qu-16's integrated multitrack USB recorder, you can record/play back up to 18 channels of 48 kHz/24-bit to your USB hard drive. It's the simple way to get multitrack recordings. In addition, the digital mixer's Qu-Drive provides stereo recording, patchable from any pair of Mix outputs, the Main LR (pre, post, or summed to mono) or even the PAFL bus.
Have an iPad? Use Qu-Pad When you combine the Qu-16 digital mixer with an iPad loaded with the Qu-Pad app, you get the freedom to adjust the monitors on stage, roam around the venue while fine-tuning the PA, mixing the show from the back of the room, or whatever else you can think to do away from the unit. The Qu-Pad app connects to the mixer over Wi-Fi and gives instant access to all live mixing parameters and settings.
