    Hello all!

    New user here. Just received our Qu-32 on Monday and am loving the interface and usability of it. I was wondering if anyone knew of a place I could download sample files to run off the Qu-Drive to practice mixing and do some training without having a live band in our venue.

    I’m looking for some samples of your typical band set-up: kick, snare, toms, guitar, bass, vox, etc.

    Does anyone know of anywhere I could get this? Or is it even possible without recording multitracks from the board?

    Hi Ben – I’ve recently found the following site and multitrack library run by Mike Senior (Cambridge Music Technology: http://www.cambridge-mt.com/index.html (click on “Mixing Secrets Free Multitrack Download Library”).

    The library has lots of multitrack recordings for download and practice purposes. You will have to do a bit of conversion and renaming of files, but not a big deal.

    Hope this helps.

    Best,
    Armin

    And just to repeat the quintessence of some other QuDrive-Threads: When copying back multitrack projects to the QuDrive don’t try this on HDDs. You’ll likely encounter playback issues from excessive head seeking (since copied tracks are no longer interleaved).
    A supported USB Stick (like the SanDisk Extreme) will be best for such experiments.

    Thanks Maverick! I’ll look into that.

    Hello guys …

    I’ve been downloading the files in the selected site, they come divided into .zip files, but can not make it work on QU-16.
    Where do I put the files and how then put the multitrack work?

    thanks

    First make a few seconds of MTK recording, the. Replace the files created – keep their names.

    You might need to resample the files to 48kHz before you can do that. Check this KB article:
    http://support.allen-heath.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/774/201/qu-drive–understanding-qu-drive-and-usb

    Note – .wav files imported to the USB drive for Multitrack playback via Qu-Drive must be MONO tracks, 48kHz 24bit, and follow the naming and file structure convention detailed in the User Guide. Also note that the Qu mixer expects 18 tracks to be present in the multitrack folder – you can create dummy tracks by duplicating and renaming your files.

    I’ve done (resample through audacity, converted to 24bit 48khz and all the tracks) and then kept these same tracks, renaming them in TRK01 to TRK11 in AHQU-> USBMTK-> QU-MT001
    When I called the USB pen by QU-Drive, always says it is “invalid project”. What is up?
    Someone has a multitrack possible to use the QU-16 so I try various table settings? Is that bought yesterday and wanted to try before going to the “road” ….

    Are they all the same length?

    Read the post above: Qu expects 18 tracks to be present in the multitrack folder – you can create dummy tracks by duplicating and renaming your files. It wouldn’t work with TRK01 to TRK11 only.

    but I also tried leaving the 18 files, replacing only up to 11.

    then mean I have to duplicate and rename all 18 files, even if the multitrack are only 11? And duplication, gets to name the remaining 7 files?

    All 18 files must be present. If you have 11 then just copy numbers 1-7 and call them 12 to 18, then don’t source them from USB or leave the faders down.

    If you have 7 short files left over then I imagine the QU will fail to load the project.

    I was copying 11 and renomeava to trk01 to 11. After copying the remaining trk12 up to 18 of the files created by the table in the recording.
    It was well with 11 wav files with 6.5MB and 7 with 1kb. so I have to do?

    I’m really struggling to understand the question… Sorry, any chance you could restate it?

    The directory must have 18 files, 48/24, and I think they have to be the same length.
