Product Description

The QU-16C from Allen & Heath represents the best of cutting-edge technology, and acknowledges the need to futureproof so that the QU-16 will still be a great mixing console in years to come. With 16 mic inputs with flying faders, built-in effects & EQ easily accessible, 4 FX returns and 16 busses, routing and creating your mix is not a problem.

For added convenience, total recall of settings is standard on the QU-16C. What's more, you can record 18 channels directly to a USB hard drive to record multitrack live mixes!

Seamless integration with Allen & Heath's "ME" personal mixing system and a QU-16 iPad app mean that performers are free to adjust their own monitor mixes (with ME-1 personal mixers - not included) and you are free to roam the venue and make tweaks and perfect your mix from your iPad.

The A&H QU-16C build on the success of the QU16, whilst still acknowledging the need for fast and simple workflow for those who are venturing between analog and digital mixing.

Upgrades for the chrome edition

Anyone who owns a QU16 knows what a great piece of kit Allen & Heath have made. With the upgraded Chrome edition they have listened to people's feedback, revisited the key features and improved on the design with a few new options. The rotary controls and fader caps are high contrast metallic finish (easier to see on stage), You get automatic mic mixing which adjusts your level to give you a more consistent sound level (great for recording meetings and debates etc) and has a few great updates to the app and software for better control over your mix

Here's what Allen & Heath say about the QU-16c

Allen & Heath has launched new Chrome Editions of its Qu series compact digital mixers to mark the launch of Qu v1.8 Chrome firmware in mid-October, which adds major new features including Automatic Mic Mixing, a Spectrogram and additional monitor mixes.

Chrome Edition Qu-16, Qu-24 and Qu-32 mixers all feature the same high contrast metallic finish rotary controls and fader caps as the premium GLD Chrome series, providing optimal visibility in low lighting scenarios and enhanced tactile control.
