Allen & Heath has introduced the Qu-You personal monitoring app for its new Qu series mixers.
Qu-You allows up to seven performers to control their monitor mixes using an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, “free[ing] up the engineer to focus on the audience”.
“With Qu we’re building a complete ecosystem of mixers, stage boxes, recording tools, apps and more – whatever the engineer and artists need for mixing live or in the studio,” comments Allen & Heath senior product manage Nicola Beretta. “Qu-You is designed to be super-easy to use in the heat of the moment, so performers can get up and running with it almost instantly.
“All the functions they need are literally at their fingertips and. unlike some apps out there, all functions are available in either orientation – so you won’t see guitarists fumbling to turn their phone and play a solo at the same time! “
Qu-You has a ‘four-wheel drive’ view, presenting chunky thumbwheel level controls for four groups of sources, plus a master mute and output level control. Double tapping on a group gives access to individual channel metering, send levels and stereo pan. Groups can be named for instant recognition and channels can be assigned to groups via simple checkboxes, allowing the user to create their perfect custom mix.
Qu-You is available now from the Apple App Store. It is compatible with Qu-16, Qu-24 and Qu-32 live, studio and installation mixers.
