    Greetings,

    I am a complete newbie to this so I would appreciate any help I can get.

    Our Church has a QU-24 soundboard and we would like to set up a live stream using
    OBS software. I have been reading and watching many videos about this subject.

    We have a laptop computer with an i7 intel processor running windows 11 Home and
    12 GB ram which will have the OBS software installed.

    My question is What is the best way to connect the QU-24 board to the laptop??
    I have seen that there is a usb port on the back of the board that looks like
    an older usb-b square shape and on the top of the board is a new style usb
    port.

    Can I use either one of these to connect to my laptop via a usb port on the
    computer??

    Once I know what connection to use I think I have seen enough videos and read
    enough on how to get the feed into OBS. If not I will inquire again.

    Thank you for any suggestions and help.
    Gene

    Yes the USB output will work just fine.
    Your need to go the Allen Heath QU website page and download the ASIO driver.
    In the set menu go to the IO tab select USB and on tracks 17 18 to start set them to the L R main out puts.
    That will send the main L R mix to OBS for streaming audio for a quick way to get audio.

    In OBS the QU mixer will show up as a sound card source.

    You will want to look at least using a matrix mix to feed the live steam so you have some more processing control of the audio or setting up an aux mix dedicated to the live stream audio feed.

    Search my older post and you’ll find many were I go over setting that up.

    we don’t exactly live stream, we just record but we have a mix at church for recording (only certain mics get sent to it) and it gets sent out L & R to a U-PHORIA UMC202HD, USB will work but getting a usb interface might be better for the long run
