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

      24 preamps with parametric and graphic EQ on each channel. Also includes Gate, Compressor, and Delay. This completely eliminates the gigantic rack of gear you would have needed! This board is built for the live AND simple recording uses a band or church may need. There are 10 outputs for stage monitors or other rooms that need a different volume level. USB output for a connection to the computer for recording.
      You can also CONTROL this mixer from your iPad using the FREE QU app from the app store. I have run several bands regularly with this mixer and that's where the presets come in handy. Simply save to a open preset at one gig, and load it up another time whenever.

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

            The Allen & Heath QU-24 is a great blend of new digital technology without all the confusing menus and layouts. One fader per channel, so if you don't know digital, it will work without much tweaking right out of the box. Then when you get going it will reward you with lots of great digital features. You will find it is worth every penny just for the compressor and gate on each channel, plus 4 very easy to use FX returns and all the outputs. The QU-24 has aux sends are that have an independent mixes features. There are also lockout settings via a user login so a novice or another show can't overwrite your settings. You will love this mixer.

                      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.

                          First off, this thing is amazing. The layout and controls are intuitive and easy to access. The buttons, faders and encoders all feel very smooth and solid, the touchscreen is responsive and bright, as well as the lights.

                          The only thing that feels "cramped" is the screen. I think a larger screen would be easier to access different settings without worrying about accidentally selecting the wrong thing.

                          The USB function works flawlessly with Macs/Logic and it's a snap to transfer data from board to computer. This board is ideal for home or small studio recordings and the multi-feature settings make it so simple to use in multiple venues. The QU series is definitely a must for those looking for a high-quality, affordable, portable, multi-feature board!
