    Just wondering if anyone knows what OS is running inside these magical little boxes?

    Something of A&H design which is custom made, 100% proprietary, and closed sourced.

    At least some element inside runs Linux.
    Although interestingly there is not an entry on the A&H FOSS declaration page for the CQ itself, just the mobile apps.

    I am trying to think through the whole multitrack sd card issue I’ve been reading about. I would love to capture at 96K all 16 channels on the CQ20B. Shows are typically two to three hours straight through so not changing out cards would be awesome. Being the drummer/technical director for the group is a bit much at times.
    Coming from the Soundcraft UI24R to this unit has been a game changer this far. I bought one unit, used it for one small venue show and ordered a second one for our large venue rig the following Monday. Great stuff in such a small form factor.

    Thanks for all the feedback folks. I found a calculator on line that helped to find the capacity I need to run. Now, time to see if the CQ will recognize all of the SD Card space. I will circle back after my recon is complete.

    Quick Update:
    I used a 120gb SDXC card in the mixer over the weekend. I formatted with the mixer and was able to see 119 gb of storage on the mixer. I have not used the record function live with this card in the unit yet. It was promising to see all of the storage space available on the unit though. This tells me that the OS inside the box does not use the typical Windows FAT32 32gb partition limitations. I will circle back after sampling a live show at 96k with my results! Have a great week.
