The SQ-5 features top of the line high resolution audio with a ultra-low <0.7ms latency. With the help of the XCVI 96kHz FLGA engine, the SQ-5 is more then powerful enough to handle any live situation you may throw at it! 16 onboard preamps and 8 stereo FX engines with dedicated return channels seemlessly work well with the acclaimed RackExtra FX library. 12 Stereo mixes (Groups or Auxes) were made in mind of the in-ear monitoring engineer and its built in Automatic Mic Mixing (AMM) makes muti-mic environments easier and less stressful. The SQ-5 is perfect for AV and corporate events to live productions and houses of worship.

96kHz XCVI Core:
The SQ was made with the future in mine. Powered by Allen & Heath's 96kHz SCVI FPGA Engine, you are getting ultra high resolution audio quality with ultra-low latency of <0.7ms with a variable bit depth for precision and noise performance. The XCVI also lets you mix coherency down to the sample and gives you the power to hand high channel / mix counts and ample FX / processing.

DEEP Signal Processing:
The SQ-5 features Allen & Heaths DEEP plugins that allow you to re-call boutique compressor and preamp emulators that match your mixing style. These plugins are easily accessable for all channels without adding latency.

Easy Multi-Track Recording:
The SQ-Drive makes multi-track recording easier then ever before. Simply record 96kHz multitracks directly to the USB key or drive. No software or soundcard needed. The SQ-Drive is the smartest and most reliable way to manage walk-in music. You can also use the built-in 32x32 96kHz audio interface for multi-track recording or virtual soundcheck. It is Core Audio and ASIO compliant while also being compatible with MIDI and Daw Control.
