    I was watching a video on mixing live sound (on CreativeLive, which was great btw). The sound engineer gave a tip to use a HPF (cutting 100hz) on everything except bass and kick, in the monitors.

    Is this possible with the QU? If it is, I don’t know how to do it. I can apply the HPF in the PEQ for a channel, but I think that is for FOH too?

    It will effect both FOH and the monitors, but that’s a good thing. The same principle applies to FOH: you want to clear out 100 Hz and below for the bass and kick so that they can be heard more clearly.

    There is a PEQ and GEQ on each of the mixes. Select the mix and processing view.
    Though yes, in general HPF on channels with little bass content helps to keep bass spill out of everything.

    Yes, you have both PEQ and GEQ on the buses, but you do NOT have HPF’s. You can use a low shelving filter, but it’s not the same.

    Not sure you need an HPF on a mix if you’ve applied this to the channels that need it. You just apply PEQ and/or GEQ as needed to deal with the response of the monitors and their acoustic environment.

    After more than two years of repeated requests I can’t figure out WHY A&H has not added this feature to mix busses. It’s not like it’s that hard to do since the algorhythm exist on the individual channels.

    We haven’t had a firmware update in a LONG time. This concerns me. But being unresponsive to users troubles me more.
