    I have 12 hardware synths that go into the Orion 32+, but I want a mixer for the synths to have hardware control of faders, pan, etc. The Allen & Heath QU mixers really look tempting because in addition to a digital mixer, they are a HUI control surface and a 32 channel USB audio interface. The Qu-32 could replace my Orion 32+ and Satori monitor controller, give me my desired hardware mixer control, and negate the need of having to buy a HUI DAW controller (I was considering an SSL UF8). It almost seems to good to be true, so I would love to hear thoughts on doing this….perhaps there are some things that I haven’t thought about in considering this. Thanks!

    The QU32 is a wonderful digital desk. Its stable!
    24bit 48k fixed
    I know… I had 4 of them and 4 QU16s
    Used in a studio scenario and to Very LOUD and mountains of people.
    However it will not do what a

    HUI DAW controller (I was considering an SSL UF8

    will do.
    It dose not have touch sensitive faders!
    I used them with both Imacs and windows using USB2
    I used them for 3 years doing this

    I think it depends an what you want to exactly do.
    Price point they are brilliant!
    Reliability Brilliant!
    Crossing over from Anologue desks to Digital : Brilliant!
    If there is anything else you want to know PM me.
