96kHz XCVI Core
SQ is powered by the 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine, delivering class-leading high resolution audio quality, ultra-low latency, variable bit depth for ultimate precision and noise performance, mix coherency, and the sheer power to handle high channel/mix counts and ample FX/processing.
DEEP Processing Ready
Founded on the XCVI Core, Allen & Heath's DEEP processing architecture allows boutique compressor, EQ and preamp models to be embedded directly within the mixer's inputs and mix channels, without adding system latency or setup hassles.
The Ultimate IEM Mixer
With no less than 12 stereo mixes and sub-millisecond latency, SQ is the perfect companion for in-ear monitoring setups.
SQ is the centrepiece of a wraparound ecosystem of apps, remote I/O units, audio networking, personal mixers and more, allowing you to connect, adapt and expand to your heart's content. Expand your I/O up to 48 remote mics and put your I/O where you want it by adding from Allens & Heath's range of expanders. Thanks to their Slink intelligent port SQ is plug and play with both the 96kHz and 48kHz expanders - you can even link your SQ directly to another SQ or a dLive. It's compatible with audio networking standards too - add a Dante, Waves or other cards to SQ's I/O port and you're ready to integrate with installed systems, provide a digital FoH/Monitor split and more.
Flexible Multitrack Recording
Capture high resolution 96kHz recordings direct to USB media thanks to SQ-Drive, or connect your PC or Mac via USB to turn SQ into a Plug and play, Core Audio compliant 32x32 audio interface, with MIDI and DAW Control capabilities. You can also equip SQ with a Dante or Waves card for multitrack recording and playback over Cat5.
Handle conferences, panel talks and TV shows with confidence thanks to SQ's fully integrated Automatic Mic Mixer.
Designed For The Pro
SQ was designed to excel and endure in the tough live sound environment. From the extruded aluminium top chassis with integrated illumination to the patented Chromatic channel mixing, the user interface is built with the audio professional in mind. Custom channel/mix layouts can be adapted to the individual engineer's workflow, while the acclaimed UI and high-res capacitive touchscreen free them to apply their expertise to the mix, not the mixer.
