The next step in compact digital mixers from Allen & Heath have been announced: SQ series. Both the SQ5 and SQ6 feature a 96kHz engine, can be DAW control surfaces and so much more.
With their 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine, Allen & Heath’s new SQ Series Digital Mixers bring the high-resolution audio performance of the company’s highly acclaimed dLive Digital Mixing System to a compact and cost-effective platform that’s both easy-to-use and highly customizable.
The rack-mountable SQ-5 has 16 onboard preamps, 17 faders and 8 softkeys.
The SQ-6 provides 24 preamps, 25 faders, 4 assignable rotary controls and 16 softkeys.
Both models support up to 56 input channels via remote expanders and both feature a networking slot for optional Dante, Waves and other cards, expanding the applications for installed systems, FOH-to-monitor splits and multitrack recording. An ecosystem of apps, remote expanders, networking cards and personal mixers multiply the SQ Series’ expansion and integration possibilities. The new SLink intelligent port allows connection to Allen & Heath’s 96kHz and 48kHz expanders and can link to another SQ Series mixer, or to a dLive system.
