    Trying to ultilize the Playback and multi track recording for the CQ18. I’d like to be able to:
    1. Upload pre recorded tracks in the first 5 tracks.
    2. Play Tracks 1 to 5 while we record with the band in tracks 6-10.

    Problem:
    1. I am unable to load Recorded Tracks. Device unable to detect from formatted SD and also tried a formatted USB.
    – Is there a specific folder i should drop the wav files in the SD?
    – It can detect in the STereo playback but NOT in the multi track tab.

    Please assist. Thanks.

    Record some tracks to the SD card. That will show you how to format them. If CQ is like the other A&H mixers, there is a very limited spec as to what will play.

    That’s just for playback, though. You’ll need to go USB to a DAW to do multitrack overdub recording, which is what you’re asking about. Reaper is cheap and excellent.

    That is so unfortunate and a huge missed feature. Just to clarify what I am trying to do is exactly same as below:

    I was attempting to move to CQ from the brand in the video. So is importing file to a Project not possible in the CQ? šŸ™ Hoping to not have to connect another device such as a laptop to do this step.

    Please advise. Thanks.

    A&H rec/playback has a very limited feature set. Using a laptop DAW is way more flexible.

    Yup. I noticed its very very limited and quite frankly a let down :(. my korg D3200 a decade ago and ZoomL12 from 5 years ago has this basic feature:(

    With so much dsp power it’s unexplainable why you need to carry extra hardware for such a simple task.

    Early days yet – put in feature requests.

    I wanted to use tracks recorded on another device. I made sure they were 48KHz, 24 bit and named..
    01XYZ
    02ABC
    03DEF
    etc.
    (obviously letters can be anything – KICK,VOX etc.

    And replaced the WAVs in the CQ-MT001 folder which the desk had created for me on a short recording.

    All worked fine šŸ™‚

    It all worked OK when I switched over.

    Ah, there are more who would like to have multitrack playback and recording simultaneously.

    Early days yet ā€“ put in feature requests.

    I just added the feature request here: https://community.allen-heath.com/forums/topic/allow-multitrack-playback-recording-simultaneously
