      Comments about Allen & Heath QU-32 38 x 28 Digital Mixer:

      This mixer is among the best that money can buy and there's very good reason for it. Fully adjustable with the ability to control your DAW and to remote sync with other wireless gear for adjustments away from the console seat, this mixer has it all. On top of that, Allen & Heath make what are arguably the most durable mixers on the market, definitely a mixer made for the professional world.

                  I've been using Allen and Heath audio gear for the past 30 years, and now their telling me that I can have that same sound straight into the computer to record. I can't think of anything better than that. These pres sound really good, better than anything you'd get in a recording board up until now.

                      Allen & Heath are back at it again with one of the best mixers in the market. The best part of it is that you can sync it with you ipad and walk away from the board and still be able to control the mix.

                          What more can be said about this, it's a quality mixer by a notably good brand. The effects on this are great, and the user interface is very intuitive and easy to learn. I've used this board for a show before and it was awesome! Definitely worth outing on your short list for new live mixing boards.

                          If you have a home studio or are looking for the best possible board to use for the band look no further. This board is a staple for anyone looking for quality digital mixing. The ease of use is incredible and the effects sound just like youd want. The motorized faders take set it and forget it to the max!
