ANALOGIQ PREAMPS
Allen & Heath's AnalogiQ total recall preamps feature zero crossing detection and an advanced padless 1dB step gain stage, 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 matched to high quality 24bit digital to analogue converters to deliver the required outputs. The AnalogiQ 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.


THE MIXING EXPERIENCE
Having massive processing power and advanced functionality is great, but it counts for nothing if you cant access the controls you need in a heartbeat. Once you start using a Qu youll sense the years of research into ergonomics and the hands-on mixing experience that our team has drawn upon to deliver a wonderfully natural layout and workflow. Its not about recreating an analogue interface, its about creating an experience thats fluid, comfortable and intuitive for novices, digital natives and old school road warriors alike, making all the benefits of digital mixing technology readily accessible to all.


TOUCH CONTROL
Qu-32s 7 inch, 800 x 480, sixteen million colour Touchscreen and its dedicated data encoder form the heart of the Qu interface, providing super-fast, easy access to all settings. The user-friendly interface has been designed with clarity in mind. Dedicated keys and screen tabs quickly guide you to meter and RTA views, FX racks, channel processing, USB audio control, scenes, setup menus and much more.


THE SUPERSTRIP
All your key processing tools are presented in a clean layout on the SuperStrip, with 1 function per physical control. The SuperStrip is complemented by an onscreen Touch Channel for intuitive access to full processing parameters without clutter or complex menu structures. Processing for Mono and Stereo inputs includes trim, polarity, HPF, gate, insert, 4 band PEQ, compressor and delay. 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.

I've toured across North America using very expensive professional consoles and this is still my favourite console to mix on. This board sounds amazing right from the start, the custom layer is perfect for setting up the mix to suit any workflow. The soft keys are great for mute groups, tap delays, etc. I wish it had 8 DCA's but 4 does the shop great. Anyone with little experience can easily navigate this console. Its pretty much plug and play! Before buying the QU32 I used other competitors on the market (X32, M32, and Si Expression 3) and this console easily beat every one. The durability, build quality, sound quality, and ease of use makes this the perfect console for anyone.

I use one 6 days a week all summer long for a job, and between the features,the fact that it is easy to navigate, extra channel strips/softkeys it is professional and it is really fun to use. The iPad app is an amazing feature and it is the most reliable app iv used so far. we use two ipads with our setup (one for FOH and one for monitors) the multi app feature is truly helpful when you have multiple bands in one night.
