Get Wireless Freedom and Superior Sound With The Allen and Heath Qu-SB Compact Wireless Digital Mixer

The Allen and Heath Qu-SB is an ultra-compact digital mixer and interface designed for iPad control, freeing you to mix from anywhere in the venue and providing a smart, portable solution for bands, AV and installation. The companion Qu-Pad app is a beautifully elegant, intuitive mixing interface, giving easy access to the full wealth of Qu features and setup options.

On top of its 18 onboard inputs and 14 outputs, Qu-SB can be expanded up to 32 mono inputs and 24 outputs by connecting to one of our family of remote AudioRacks over a single Cat5 cable. Couple this with the Qu-You personal monitoring app for Android and iOS, plus the ME-1 personal mixers, and Qu-SB is a fantastic choice for bands looking for the same great monitor sound wherever they play.

Analogue Preamps

Qu-SBs sixteen AnalogiQTM 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 AnalogiQTM design has been refined over many months 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-Drive

Forget soundcard drivers and software setup, Qu has an integrated multitrack USB recorder, providing 18 channels of 48kHz, 24bit recording and playback straight to/from your USB hard drive. Capturing multitrack recordings of your shows has never been so easy. Mixes and FX returns can be recorded alongside channels, and multitrack audio can be played back to the mixer for virtual sound-checks.

An independent set of controls is provided for quick stereo recording of the main LR or other mix outputs, and a 2-track USB return can be routed to ST3 for playback of stereo WAV files such as walk-in music.

ILIVE FX

Qu-SBs dynamics and FX algorithms are derived from the FX used in the iLive pro touring series. Some of the worlds most respected audio engineers have chosen to use iLives FX on tour in preference to top-end plug-ins and external FX units. Qu-SB boasts 4 stereo iLive FX engines, featuring lovingly crafted emulations of legendary classic reverbs, gated reverbs, delays, modulators, flangers and more.

Automatic Mic Mixer

AMM is vital in applications such as conferences, meetings and panel discussions where a number of microphones are open at the same time, reducing background noise and minimizing the risk of feedback. The Automatic Microphone Mixer feature helps the engineer to manage the levels of multiple mic inputs, ensuring that each speakers contribution is heard. The D-Classic dynamic gain sharing algorithm is inspired by industry standard automixers. Up to 16 microphone sources can be mixed at once, with each channel having a priority setting which determines its weight in the total system gain.

USB Audio Streaming

Qus built-in interface streams multitrack audio to your Mac or PC via a flexible patching system: all Input channels and the Main LR can be recorded at the same time, or you may choose to record something different such as FX returns or a pair of mixes.

The returns from the computer can be assigned to the Input channels. The interface is class-compliant on Mac OS X and drivers are available for Windows systems. Either way, it will be recognized straightaway by any DAW supporting ASIO or Core Audio, including Logic, Cubase, Reaper, and Pro Tools.
