Allen & Heath QU-24 Digital Mixer
QU-32 DIGITAL MIXING RESHAPED
Now in a feature-packed new Chrome Edition, Qu-24 reshapes digital mixing, combining innovative design and exceptional functionality to create a superb professional mixing experience. Bristling with all the features you’d expect from a top of the range digital console and incorporating technologies pioneered on the GLD and iLive digital mixing systems, Qu-24 has the power and pedigree to deliver class-leading audio performance. Hot new features include Automatic Mic Mixing and Spectrogram for feedback-hunting, plus upgraded, high contrast metallic finish controls. Whether you’re switching from analogue or updating your digital desk, it’s time to experience the new digital with Qu-24.
Qu provides much more than just a mixer. Qu is an entire ecosystem with Remote AudioRacks allowing I/O to be placed where it’s needed, ME Personal Mixers expanding monitor mixes and enabling simple, time-saving local control, Qu Apps for complete remote setup and wireless mixing on stage or anywhere else in the venue, ProFactory Mic presets to speed up preparation time and ensure the best sound, plus USB recording and DAW integration for powerful workflow optimisation from one centrepiece device.
Qu-24 features twenty-four AnalogiQTM digitally controlled preamps with advanced zero-crossing detection and a padless 1dB-step gain stage, which have been closely allied to the DSP for optimal gain accuracy and audio transparency. The analogue signal is captured by high-class, low latency 24bit analogue to digital converters, and are matched to 24bit digital to analogue converters to deliver the required high quality output. The AnalogiQTM preamp design has been refined to offer superb transparency, minimal distortion and an ultra-low noise floor, with a warm, musical sound that is missing from some digital consoles.
QU COMPACT DIGITAL MIXERS
Qu mixers have been designed by our in-house research and development team in Cornwall, Great Britain, and are directly descended from the GLD and iLive digital mixing systems that have earned the industry’s respect night after night on tour and in live venues across the globe – so you can be confident that you’re standing behind a premium mixer that looks, feels, and sounds like a pro.
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.
