The largest mixer in the Qu series, the QU-32 chrome digital mixer from Allen & Heath has 32 inputs and 4 stereo groups/mixes. Combining innovative design and exceptional functionality to create a superb professional mixing experience, the Qu-32 incorporates technologies pioneered on the GLD and iLive digital mixing systems to deliver class-leading audio performance.

The Qu-32 is an ideal digital mixer for users who are used to analog. It includes a fader per each mono input channel and fewer fader layers for a streamlined workflow, while its intuitive layout—including True Colour Touchscreen and dedicated rotary encoder—makes it effortless to adjust settings and parameters, while a SuperStrip set of physical controls give you tactile precision over gain, HPF, 4-band PEQ, gate, compressor, GEW, and pan. Navigate and modulate using dedicated keys and screen tabs to meter and RTA view, FX racks, channel processing, USB audio control, scenes, setup menus, and more.

Qu-32 features 32 AnalogiQ™ preamps that are digitally controlled and have advanced zero-crossing detection and a padless 1dB-step gain stage, which have been closely allied to the DSP for optimal gain accuracy and audio transparency. High-class, low latency 24bit analog to digital converters capture the analog signal and are matched to 24bit digital to analog converters to deliver the required high-quality output. The AnalogiQ™ preamps are designed for pristine transparency, minimal distortion, and an ultra-low noise floor, delivering a warm, musical sound.

Allen & Heath’s Qu series features multitrack recording direct to USB, Automatic Mic Mixing, ProFactory mic presets, plus an ever-growing ecosystem of apps, accessories, remote I/O, and so much more.

Beyond the mixers themselves, Qu is a comprehensive setup with features that include:

  • Remote AudioRacks allowing I/O to be placed where it's needed
  • ME Personal Mixers expanding monitor mixes and enabling time-saving local control
  • Qu Apps for complete remote setup and wireless mixing on stage or anywhere else in the venue
  • ProFactory Mic presets to speed up preparation time and ensure the best sound
  • USB recording and DAW integration for powerful workflow optimization from a central device
