    So I connected my QU-16 to Adam S2V monitors with the digital AES out. I’m trying to monitor sound playback and tracking from Logic Pro 10 on my Mac. The Mac is connected to the rear panel USB on QU-16. After much trail and error I got the speakers to finally play sound from computer (send to channel 17-18). Now my problem is that the volume is controlled by Stereo 1 fader and by master fader. Is there a way to control AES out volume independent from master volume?

    since the AES out mirrors some bus outs it is not possible to control it separately

    With a QU 16 short of using a post mix out to the AES you could select L R Pre for the AES out, for monitor level control you would need to the controls on the monitors.

    For a non digital monitor connection you could use the ALT OUT and then control the
    monitor levels with the ALT OUT level knob.

    So how would I set up “post mix out to AES”? Sounds like I may my stuck using the alt out analog solution, which is quite disappointing since the S2V monitors have the AES3 input option. I’m guessing Allen Heath didn’t have this configuration in mind when they designed the QU series.

    Use a mix and set the AES to that mix.

    Ah, yeah, prob not a good option since since I’m using 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 for monitor mixes for musicians headphones for tracking. I suppose I could change one of those to mono mix.

    If you have a stereo mix for tracking that doesn’t get changed a lot, use 2 mono mixes and pan using the faders.
