Allen & Heath have announced the latest addition to its range of compact digital mixers, the follow up to the Qu-16, the Qu-24. The new unit features 24 mic/line inputs and a fader for each mic input channel. A high-resolution touchscreen featuring the ‘touch channel’ gives easy access to channel processing, the FX racks and all the setup and system management controls.
The Qu-Drive multi-track recorder is integrated into the mixer, as well as the dSNAKE for remote I/O and personal monitoring, multi-channel USB streaming to Mac, Qu-Pad control app, and iLive’s renowned FX library. “Building on the key features of the hugely successful Qu-16, Qu-24 is an exciting follow up. During the design process we aimed to retain a compact format with all mic inputs on one layer, with extra matrix, groups and FX sends to suit larger applications,” says Rob Clark, A&H R&D director. The mixer also has 3 stereo inputs, 4 FX engines with 4 dedicated sends and stereo returns, 20 mix outputs including 2 stereo matrix mix outputs and 2 stereo groups with full processing, patchable AES digital output with a 2-channel ALT output, dedicated talkback mic input, and 2-track output.
