          Comments about Allen & Heath QU-24 30 In / 24 Out Digital Mixing Console:

          The qu series is great. Very intuitive without an abundance of menus and hoops to jump through.

          -expandable digital snake, and ipad controllable are all great features whether for permanent install or mobile sound events.

          The only con is the auxes are not all mono... the 1st 4 are but the last 6 are grouped into pairs.. Versus say a presonus studiolive Ai board.

          Other than that it's a great mixer.

                      Both Presonus and Behringer have had interface/boards out for a while, but this guy has 24 real Allen and Heath channel strips for you to use with EQ and Compression. It's really like having a poor man's SSL board that doubles as a DAW controller. This could be the centerpiece to any mid-level to high end studio!
