    Hi

    I just got my QU-16, love it! The only suggestion I have now is about creating personal monitor mix.

    I know the “professional” way to do this is to buy digital snake and several ME-1s, but that’s just too expensive.

    All we need is a simple iPhone app that every on-stage person can use to adjust their mix. The idea is:

    1. It does not have to have all the features like the qu-pad app, just fader controls on a mix should be enough. Come on, they are not audio engineers they don’t really need to adjust EQ or compression. And I don’t really want them to change processing on channels either. It does not even need to have metering, this can reduce network load, so the network communication is totally on demand.

    2. Not everyone bring or have iPad, but probably have iPhone in their pocket. And iPhone has the perfect screen size to fit simple mix app like I described above. (Just faders, No EQ, meter, processing and routing is needed.)

    Summary: simple iPhone mix app support for Qu.

    A managment panel on the qu-pad app to restrict which iphone control which mix is a good plus.

    +1. iPhone / iPad. A lot of the shows I do I use only four channels. Would love to have the mixer in my pocket

    you can also look at this project, for android:
    http://qu-apps.wieggers.org/2014/03/qumixdroid-0-0-3-work-in-progress/

    and this, with arduino:

    but all these ideas have one common problem: the qu16/24 does only accept ONE external device 🙁
    with the arduino system, it is quite easy to ask to disconnect if no activity for 5 sec (reconnect is very fast) all musicians do not need to modify their return settings at the same time

    Cool, I see so the MIDI control of the mixer is actually open and public. Let’s just hope A&H can fix this one connection limit soon and then we can build our own iPhone app for it!

    it should be possible to build a kind of “router”, to talk with all the iphones/ipad/arduinos/android; chain the messages and send them to the qu16
    but it would be much more easy if A&H do it themselves 😀

    Yes this would be great! (and just what I’ve been asking for for months on end….) (See “Multiple Ipads / Iphone” post from me in suggestions forum)

    The arduino can be used to make all sorts of electronic systems that will perform the functions you want. They help to simplify work and make processes faster.

    Wow! This is an old thread!

    For anybody else who comes across this, the personal monitoring app for Qu is ‘Qu-You’ and available for free on both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store:
    https://apps.apple.com/app/qu-you/id935278018
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.allenheath.qumon

    You can have up to 8 total connections and we had a live stream looking into remote apps for Qu (including Qu-You) just last week, which you can see here – https://www.facebook.com/AllenHeathofficial/videos/862782077779918

    Thanks,
    Keith.

    yeah, true! and your apps work pretty well. but sometimes i still use my old arduino setup, because “hardware knobs” are more convenient (faster to use) during a live show.

    Yea this is an old thread brought back to life!

    When was the QU You released?

    In addition to mixing a monitor mix it works great as a simple way for someone
    to mix a mix for a remote feed like a live stream mix.
