About Allen & Heath SQ-6 48-channel Digital Mixer:

48-channel Digital Mixer with 25 Faders, 6 Fader Layers, 32 x 32 USB Interface, and Network Audio Support

Next-generation Digital Mixing

Based on Allen & Heath’s acclaimed XCVI 96kHz FPGA audio engine, the SQ-6 digital mixer delivers extensive live sound mixing capabilities. Even with its powerful processing, the SQ-6 delivers best-in-class audio quality with less than 0.7ms of latency. You’ll have a lot of flexibility when it comes to creating monitor mixes, with up to 12 stereo mixes (groups or auxiliaries), in addition to the main LR out. Eight stereo FX engines provide studio-quality effects with dedicated returns. Complete with a 32 x 32 USB audio interface and dedicated controls for mixing convenience, the Allen & Heath SQ-6 is a smart mixing solution for live music, worship sound, and educational facilities.

Capable mixer that’s ready to expand

Right out of the box, the SQ-6 digital mixer offers 48 input channels. You have 25 faders for hands-on mixing, arranged in six fader layers for managing larger mixes. The SQ-6 also offers an SLink port for remote audio and expansion. And a 64-channel I/O port is ready for network audio integration.

Manage large mixes easily with automatic mic mixing

When you’re mixing a multi-mic setup, you’ll find the SQ-6’s automatic mic mixing capabilities to be a huge help. It’s also a fantastic safety net when relying on inexperienced volunteers to manage the sound system. With automatic mic mixing, you can be sure that you’ll never experience an excessive imbalance between mic levels in large multi-mic applications.

Built-in audio interface and comprehensive I/O

Multitrack recording is made simple with the Allen & Heath SQ-6, with its built-in 32 x 32 USB audio interface. Engineers at Musiekwereld also appreciate the convenience of direct recording to a USB drive. A 64-channel I/O port is also present for connecting to network audio, and an SLink port allows for remote audio and I/O expansion.

SQ Apps for engineers and performers

Allen & Heath offers two free apps that will take your SQ6 experience to a new level of flexibility. For engineers, the SQ MixPad app (iOS/Android/macOS/Windows) gives you remote access to all main mixing functions, and offers offline editing for show prep. For performers, the SQ4You personal mixing app allows up to eight performers to craft their own monitor mixers from their iOS or Android devices to suit their personal preferences, so the engineer can focus on their main mix.
