An incredible mixer for live music, conferencing, panel discussions and much more.
The QU-16 Chrome Edition digital mixer from Allen & Heath puts a professional, versatile mixing experience at your fingertips. With 16 high-performance mic preamps and a stylish, durable design, this innovative mixer delivers incredible sound quality and control in a portable package. The AnalogiQ total recall preamps provide rich, full-bodied tone from any microphone. And with one-touch factory presets for popular mics from Shure, Sennheiser and Audio-Technica, dialing in amazing sound is effortless.
16 High-Quality Mic Preamps With Total Recall
The QU-16 Chrome features 16 studio-grade mic preamps to capture every nuance of your performance. With AnalogiQ total recall technology, you can store and recall your preamp settings to achieve the same stellar sound every time. This allows for quick setup and ensures a consistent mix from show to show. The preamps offer a wide gain range to suit any mic, delivering a warm and full tone whether you're using dynamic, condenser or ribbon mics.
Automatic Mic Mixing for Flawless Live Sound
The Automatic Microphone Mixer helps you achieve a balanced, feedback-free mix no matter how many live mics are in use. It automatically controls mic levels based on which mics are active at any given time. You can assign mic priority to ensure the most important inputs are always heard clearly. The Spectrogram display provides a visual representation of active mics to give you an overview of what's happening on stage. This allows for a clean, professional mix with minimal adjustments required.
Qu-Pad App for Wireless Remote Control
The free Qu-Pad app transforms your tablet or mobile device into a wireless remote control for the QU-16 Chrome. Adjust monitors from anywhere in the venue, tweak the house mix from the audience perspective or manage scenes and routing from backstage. The intuitive interface provides control over preamp gain, channel processing, effects, Qu-Drive playback and DAW transport functions. Qu-Pad connects via Wi-Fi for flexibility and mobility, allowing you to focus on crafting a great mix rather than being tethered to the board.
Stylish, Durable Design With Convenient Carry Bag
Sporting a sleek metallic finish and high-contrast controls, the QU-16 Chrome is optimized for use in low-light environments. Its rugged, roadworthy construction is built to withstand the demands of live performance. The included carry bag provides comfortable portability and protection for your mixer, with padded handles, durable nylon shell and plenty of storage space for cables and accessories.
