Qu-Pac is available from March 2015
USA - Allen & Heath has extended its successful Qu range with the launch at NAMM of Qu-Pac, an ultra-compact digital mixer with both a built-in touchscreen and iPad control app.

Designed for live music and installed sound, Qu-Pac is a freestanding or rack mount mixer, providing a flexible solution for bands and in multi-purpose environments such as schools, hotels and bars. Qu-Pac connectivity offers 16 mono inputs, three stereo inputs and 12 mix outputs on the rear panel, but that can be expanded up to 38 in / 28 out by connecting to Allen & Heath's family of remote AudioRacks over Cat 5.

The mixer offers total recall of settings and preamps, multi-track recording to USB via Qu-Drive, a choice of personal monitoring solutions, channel ducking, multi-channel USB streaming and the renowned iLive FX Library to deliver outstanding audio quality, making it the most fully featured digital mixer in its class.

Continuing the trend of remote iPad mixing started with the iLive family over 4 years ago, the Qu-Pad iPad app gives instant wireless control of the mixer's key parameters and settings, freeing the user to mix the show from anywhere in the venue.

Allen & Heath's managing director, Glenn Rogers commented on the new arrival, "Qu-Pac is a response to some of the major headaches in real world mixing. For bands working the bar and club scene, there are countless situations where there just is no space for a regular mixer. For venues, there are many, many scenarios from AV presentations and conferences to hotels, bars and restaurants where background music and simple events are handled by non-technical staff who would be intimidated by a regular mixer.

"Think of a bar or restaurant that has live music at the weekends. Qu-Pac is ideal in this sort of situation - password protection and simple custom screens allow general staff to run the system day-to-day, then a sound engineer can use the iPad to mix full shows, with the safety net of hands-on control if anything happens to the Wi-Fi. That's just one scenario where this highly versatile and effective package provides the ideal solution."
