UK - A range of DEEP processing plugins is now available as optional add-ons for its SQ Series, Allen & Heath has announced.
The new options allow SQ users to choose from a suite of plugins ported directly from Allen & Heath’s flagship dLive mixing system, including premium compressors inspired by sought-after hardware units and a collection of powerful GEQs.
Thanks to SQ’s 96kHz XCVI core, based on latest generation FPGA technology, a preamp and compressor plug-in can be used on each of the 48 input channels, while a GEQ and compressor can be applied to each of the 16 mixes. Unlike third-party plugin solutions that require additional hardware, DEEP plugins are built in to the console architecture and add no additional latency to the system, ensuring phase coherency across channels and mixes.
Nic Beretta, Allen & Heath’s head of product, comments: “One of the key reasons for dLive’s success has always been the quality of its on-board processing and now we’re bringing that direct to SQ. These new additions confirm SQ as the most powerful console in its class, and certainly one of the most customisable. As an SQ user, you can pick the combination of plugins that you want and really hone the desk to your applications.
“Whether you need a vintage compressor to bring a studio quality sound to a live vocal, or a precision GEQ to tune an audio system, you can now bring the power of dLive’s DEEP processing to your SQ.”
