Allen & Heath QU-24C 24-Channel Digital Mixer
The Qu-24C from Allen & Heath is a 30 IN / 24 OUT Digital Mixer that is one of the feature-packed Chrome Edition offerings. Qu-24C reshapes digital mixing, combining innovative design and exceptional functionality to create a superb professional mixing experience. Incorporating technologies pioneered on the GLD and iLive digital mixing systems, Qu-24C has the power and pedigree to deliver class-leading audio performance.
Qu-24 features twenty-four AnalogiQTM digitally controlled preamps with advanced zero-crossing detection and a padless 1dB-step gain stage, which have been 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, and are matched to 24bit digital to analogue converters to deliver the required high quality output. The AnalogiQTM preamp 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 800×480, True Color Touchscreen and its dedicated rotary encoder form the heart of Qu-24’s interface, providing super-fast access to all settings and parameters. 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. Complementing the touchscreen is the SuperStrip – a set of single function physical controls for instant access to gain, HPF, 4 band PEQ, gate, compressor, GEQ and pan. The screen overview also follows the control being turned.
