      This console is the best of both worlds. Not only does it have an analogue feel and easy of use but all of the digital processing is flawless. Allen and Heath really outdid themselves on this Console. I have used the QU32 extensively and everything the QU32 can do the QU24 can do as well

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

        Once you start using Qu-24 you'll sense the years of research into ergonomics and the hands-on mixing experience that our team has drawn upon to deliver a wonderfully natural layout and workflow. With its responsive touchscreen, 25 motor faders and acclaimed AnalogiQ recallable preamps, Qu-24 combines exceptional ease of use with class-leading audio performance. Qu-24's twenty four total recall preamps feature zero crossing detection and an advanced padless 1dB step gain stage, 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 matched to high quality 24bit digital to analogue converters to deliver the required outputs. The Stereo mixes provide Insert, 4-band PEQ, compressor, delay and balance control. Moving faders started as an expensive option in the studio desks of the 80s, and later became the norm with the advent of digital technology, fader automation is essential for rapid mixing, especially when you're dealing with multiple monitor mixes, with the 25 motorized ALPS faders, 24 arranged over 2 layers, allows instant access to all channels and masters in a compact space, plus a dedicated master fader which dynamically follows the mix selection.

          I recently got to do a gig with one of these mixers and it's pretty awesome! Usually with digital mixers I find myself struggling to learn how to use it but the user interface on this was pretty intuitive! I highly recommend it for any venue looking to upgrade their sound set up for something much more high end!

                  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.
