Las Vegas, NV (June 10, 2016)—Allen & Heath has released firmware V1.9, updated the Qu-Pad app, added factory mic presets from Shure and Sennheiser, streamlined DAW Control for Windows, and issued the new, customizable Qu-Control app for install applications.
Qu-Pad V1.9 implements every setting, parameter and control of Qu mixers. Alongside control of live mixing functions, processing, routing and effects, Qu-Pad now offers complete access to scene management, control of the 15 mixer SoftKeys across the whole Qu range, AMM, I/O patching, and Qu-Drive stereo and multitrack recording / playback facilities. Also new to the app is user permissions with password protected user profiles.
Allen & Heath has teamed with Shure and Sennheiser to provide channel Library presets for a number of mics, providing a starting point for end-users who are working with the variety of mics and a Qu mixer.
Qu-Control is a customizable iOS app for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. Offering five screens with up to 15 control ‘widgets’ each, the app enables control of parameters such as background music source selection, master zone level, scene recall, or microphone paging. Password protection prevents access to unwanted controls, which makes it useful for wireless control of venues, conference rooms, hotel lobbies and any other installed sound environment.
Following customer feedback, the DAW Control driver, previously available for Mac only, will soon be released for Windows OS. The driver allows integration of a Qu mixer into a studio environment, emulating HUI and Mackie Control protocols to take control of a number of DAWs, including Cubase, Sonar and Pro Tools.
