    Hi,can anyone please help, on qu-16, do you know if it’s possible to link stereo mix outs 5/6-7/8-9/10 to master volume fader? I want to adjust volume of all stereo mix outs same time as the master volume fader.
    Thank you in advance.

    Assign all those outputs to a DCA.
    The DCA can be raised and lowered and will basically be a remote controll of all those outputs.
    A DCA does not pass audio, it is just a remote fader that can control numerous faders.

    NOTE:
    Even though you will move the DCA up and down, it will not cause the mix output faders to physically move as you would think,

    BUT,,,, the audio of all those outputs will be raised and lowered in tandem.

    Hi dpdan, thank you for your prompt response, ok, i went to DCA group assign and turned on green light for Mix5-6 Mix7-8 Mix9-10 and LR, is that it? now when i turn the master fader up and down it would turn all Mix 7to10 also?

    close but no, πŸ™‚

    in order to see the DCA fader, you need to go to the custom layer and place that DCA in the custom layer,
    I use an iPad and leave it sitting on the custom layer page, that way I always have access to it without having to switch away from my L/R mix.

    DCAs are wonderful, instead of assigning all your drum mics to a group (which is such a common practice, but horrible).
    With all the drums in a DCA named DRUMS, you can now raise and lower all the drums, and the effects will also be altered as well provided the effects like reverb are post fader. If the drum mics were assigned to a group, the reverb relationship (dry/wet) would change and not be consistent,,, try it. You’ll never want to use a group again. Just remember that a DCA does not pass audio, so you can not place a single compressor, EQ. or some other processing on all those channels like you can with a group.

    in order to move the “ALL MAINS” DCA up and down,
    it will need to reside in a custom layer since there are no dedicated faders for DCAs,,,

    You know, the User Guide (aka “the Manual”) can be a great help:

    http://www.allen-heath.com/media/Qu-Mixer-Reference-Guide-AP9372_7.pdf

    You’ll find information and pictures.

    I know you all love DCA, but why not simply set the mix feeds to post fader in this case?
    Select mix, hold Pre Fade button (on the left) and toggle all SEL buttons so the LEDs are on.
    …page 22 in The Manual, btw. πŸ˜‰

    Andreas, you said….

    I think you meant so the LEDs are off.

    He is using L/R for mains, with 5-6, 7-8, and 9-10 for stereo delayed systems. He is using post fader on 5-6, 7-8 and 9-10 with all the faders set at 0 db and all set to post. This allows him the luxury of riding faders in the L/R mix and having all of those changes reflected in the three additional stereo outputs, and having separate delay settings.
    One DCA fader to raise and lower ALL the mains is nice, and a DCA is the only way to accomplish that.

    sorry, sure, OFF for post.
    I see, its the output not the channel faders. My bad.
