SKU: QUPAC32 MPN: QU-PAC-32The Allen & Heath Qu-Pac-32 is the newest member to the Qu series of mixing consoles. The processing power of the full Qu-32 has been jammed into a tiny 4U rack-mounted footprint. The Qu-Pac-32 is perfect for installations where there is not a good place to put a front of house mixing position and you want to be free to mix where ever you want. The Qu-Pac-32 is designed specifically for mixing remotely with an iPad, but can also be fully controlled from the hardware as well.
If you've ever run sound in a small bar or club, you know that most of the time, the FOH is not always in the ideal location for proper mixing. What if you could mix the show in the sweet spot, the audience. The Qu-Pac is designed specifically for wireless mixing with the free Qu-Pad app for Apple's iPad.
Now you can mix the show from anywhere in the venue. Everything from monitor mixes, to EQ & compression settings, effects, to the 31-band graphic EQ on outputs. The Qu-Pad app gives you quick and easy access to all of these parameters and more. All you need is a wireless Wi-Fi router connected to the network port on the Qu-Pac and an iPad. You'll have the best sounding mix in town, and all of the other sound engineers will be jealous!
The Qu-Pac is fully compatible with Allen & Heath's ME Personal Mixing System. The ME-1 personal mixers can be chained from the dSNAKE port on the back of the console, or from the AR2412 or AB168 Stagebox if you're using a digital snake.
Now all of your musician's on stage can control their own mixes without the FOH having to do anything! You will no longer have to hear the phrase "Can I get more of my vocal/guitar in my monitor" over and over again! :)
Lot of digital consoles on the market today have multi-track capabilities in some capacity. Allen & Heath has taken this a step further with the Qu-Pac. No other manufacturer has made multi-track recording this easy. You don't even need a computer. All you need is a USB hard drive. Plug in your USB hard drive to the USB port and the Qu-Pac can record channels 1-16 plus one selectable stereo pair in high quality 24-bit, 48kHz. The Qu-Pac can also record just simple stereo mixes if need be. When the recording is done, the Qu-Pac can instantly stream the tracks right back into the console for immediate mix review. How sweet is that?
Want to still use a computer and record straight into your DAW? No problem! The Qu-Pac's USB audio interface is class-compliant on Mac OS X with drivers available for Windows users. Just plug it in and the computer will see it as a USB multi-channel audio device. Not only that, the USB connection can send MIDI control back and forth so you can easily map the faders on the console to tracks in your DAW session. You also have the option of connecting the console via Ethernet for MIDI control as well.
The Allen & Heath iLive series has been a huge success in the larger format, professional sound industries. The Qu-Pac uses the same FX algorithms that were developed for the iLive series. The Qu-Pac has 4 stereo iLive FX engines featuring rich reverbs, delays, modulators, and much more. All of the FX returns also feature dedicated PEQs for fine tuning. Qu-Pac's FX engine was built with expandability in mind so more FX can be added in the future with firmware releases.
The Allen & Heath Qu-Pac includes 16 inputs w/digitally controlled on-board microphone preamps or line-level TRS connections. A total of 10 outputs provide a total of 12 assignable outputs. In addition, the Qu-Pac also includes 3 pairs of stereo TRS inputs, TRS 2Track out, TRS alt out, and AES output via XLR connector. The Qu-Pac also has a dedicated talk-back microphone input with phantom power separate from the other inputs.
Tired of dealing with huge copper snakes, dealing with wiring issues, and want to make the jump to a digital snake? No problem! With the Allen & Heath Qu-Pac and it's built-in dSNAKE port, you can use Allen & Heath's AR2412, AR84, or the new AB168 digital Stageboxes. Now you can have all of your I/O up on the stage and run a single Cat5 cable back to the Qu-Pac. That's awesome!
