Compact Powerhouse!

Allen and Heath Qu-SB is a compact, iPad controlled, digital mixing console with 16 Mono Mic/Line Inputs. Included with Qu-SB are AnalogiQ preamps with zero-crossing detection (to remove clipping during gain adjustment) and 1dB step gain staging, for precise gain accuracy. In addition, it has 24bit Analog to Digital and Digital to Analog converters with low latency. The Qu-SB can be expanded using the Allen and Heath AudioRack for up to 38 inputs. For ease of use, the Qu-SB incorporates AMM (automatic microphone mixing) algorithm into its design, in applications such as panel discussions, interviews, and more! For the live music environment, the digital mixing system includes USB enabled multitrack recording and playback, allowing for virtual soundcheck. In compliment to multitrack recording, the Qu-SB is compatible with Allen and Heath's plethora of mobile applications such as the Qu-You personal mixing application, allowing up to 7 musicians to control their own monitor mixes on-stage. In conclusion, this digital mixing console is a powerhouse with applications in every live setting, making it a natural choice for audio engineers looking for mobility and flexibility in their workflow.

Features:

  • 16 Mic/Line inputs
  • AnalogiQ Preamps
  • 4 dedicated FX Engines
  • 32x32 USB Audio Interface
  • 4 DCA Groups and Mute Groups
  • Qu-Drive Multritrack Recording
  • dSnake Remote Audio Port
