New York, NY (October 7, 2016)—Allen & Heath has bolstered its range of ProFactory Mic presets for its Qu Series compact digital mixers with the debut of new presets for Audio-Technica, Shure and Sennheiser mics.
All the presets are intended to provide a starting point to get the best possible sound out of a instrument, microphone and mixer combination, across a range of popular mics.
New presets for Audio-Technica include MB, ATM and Pro series microphones, to add to the evolution e600, e800 and e900 series from Sennheiser, and PGA, SM and Beta series from Shure. The team at Allen & Heath worked closely with the engineers at each manufacturer to create the settings for each mic when paired with Qu’s AnalogiQ Preamps.
“Building a specific library of equalization presets for Audio-Technica microphones on the Qu series has not only enabled us to ensure that the user can begin their work with a confident and solid foundation, but also has provided the opportunity to bring to the forefront the nuance and subtleties that make this selection of Audio-Technica microphones so rewarding to use in the creative process,” said Keisuke Kobayashi, CMO/CTO at Audio-Technica Corporation.
“We appreciate the opportunity to implement presets for Shure microphones directly into the Qu consoles,” noted Matt Engstrom, category director for Wired Products at Shure. “The combination of the powerful Qu mixers and Shure mic presets gives users an easy way to get their setup dialed in and quickly sounding great.”
Tom Vollmers, product manager for Live Performance & Music at Sennheiser, offered, “The Qu Series presets help users jump start their mixes with our microphones. These dedicated EQ presets cover a wide range of instrument / microphone combinations, providing engineers with a solid foundation to achieve great sounding results in less time.”
The presets are available now, and can be downloaded from the Qu series product pages on the A&H website.
