    I’m using the ‘main outs’ for the tops and the ‘aux out’ for the sub, Because my speakers dont have a built in crossover, so I Set the EQ to act as a crossover. My problem is, when I want to raise or lower the overall volume, I need to do it 2 times, Once, at the main fader (for the tops) and the second time at the aux fader (for the sub). This is pretty disappointing, I haven’t expected this with the CQ18. Am I missing some Information on how to do it correctly? I read the manual, And played around a bit on the mixer to figure out a way to control Everything with one fader, but haven’t been able. I would suggest to add an option at the ‘Config’ screen > ‘Aux out’> (pre fader, post fader,) follow Main L/R fader, so when moving the main L/R fader it will also affect the aux outs. Unless there is any other solution, will be very thankful for any solution.
    Thank you.

    The whole point of the Aux mixes is that they are totally independent of main LR! It is the same on all the A&H mixers!
    You would have just the same problem on Qu16. All other A&H mixers, from Qu24 upwards have groups and matrices, either of which would give you a solution to your problem.
    Many people are asking for groups and/or matrices to be added to CQ.

    It is a feature present on my X32 and very useful.
    I believe that it could be implemented easily with the flexibility of FPGA.

    I subscribe to this wish 🙂
    there are situations at conferences, where from the Aux, I send to another room and during the break if I look “up” it will send the sound even if the MASTER is down.

    @highflyer1953 You’re %100 right, but now that we don’t have groups, at least, we should have an option like this.

    On another post you were asking about how to properly gain stage if not using the ‘Gain Assistant’, but here you’re requesting groups. I think you need to walk before you can run, learn how to gain stage first before concerning yourself with groups etc! 🙂

    The good old 01V96 and similar have “Fader-Groups” (not DCA!).
    If you move one fader of the group the other members follow this movement relatively.
    I think this is what you need and would be very helpful (not only for CQ).

    Great idea. It would be ideal for ‘subs on aux’ mixing. I can use each input channel post-fader, have the sends all at unity, then need to have the aux output follow Main L&R volume to finish the setup. Far simpler than fader groups, channel groups or DCA etc.
