    I watched the webinar last night. The folks at A&H did an outstanding job! I am using the Windows DAW update without any issues. I have decided to now start using my QU-16 in the studio for dedicated drum tracking. Any ideas suggestions as to the set up? Mic wise this is how the physical set up will look:

    Kick – 1 mic
    Snare – 1 mic
    Rack Tom – 1 mic
    Floor Tom 1 mic
    Overheads -2 mic’s

    So what is the best way to set up the QU-16 for tracking only? I would also like to use the onboard compression. I would also in some cases like to use some outboard preamps and compressors. What is the best way to set those up? Thanks in advance!

    @alrod Hi Al, thanks! For tracking with Qu-16 I’d suggest having channels 1-16 source assigned to Local inputs, then ST1 and ST2 source to USB-B. To use processing on the “way in” make sure the CH/ST Source is set to DIRECT OUTS in the SETUP > I/O Patch > USB Audio.
    In the ROUTING menu you can change the tap-off point for the Direct Out. Post Compressor will allow you to use your onboard Dynamics when recording.

    For outboard processors, you would need to set up send / return channels for these bits of hardware.
    Use a Mix out like you would a monitor, then return the processed signal back to the local inputs of the mixer.
    If this is a stereo processor, use a stereo mix out to send and a pair of linked channels to return, for a mono processor just use a mono mix and 1 input channel.
    I should have some template show files available in the Qu User Library of the Community shortly.

    Let me know if you need more info.

    Thanks.
    Harry.

    Thanks Harry!
    I think the template idea is a great one, looking forward to it. And again, I cannot thank you enough for the outstanding job you did on the webinar. I learned a lot!
