    Sorry if this has already been covered elsewhere, trying to find out authoritatively if there will be a Madi card option for the SQ series? Looking to use SQ5 with UA LiveRack eventually if possible.

    I’m with you, MADI would be cool.

    Keith told me in an email: “We are looking into market demand for an SQ MADI card at present, but there is nothing planned for production at this time.”

    I’m with you, having access to a UAD Live Rack with the SQ’s power and flexibility would be a great combination for both studio/live streaming and live event use.

    I think this with a Dante SQ card can be an expensive workaround for now..

    Focusrite are great and well known for their converters, but for pure DD conversion I´d look at less costly alternatives like ferrofish verto mx (just a converter) or rme digiface dante (also is a usb interface). Both are around 50-60% of the red box, so still costly. There may be others, those two just from the top of my head.

    I would absolutely love a MADI card for the SQ to use with UAD

    The announcement from Allen & Heath, when they released the SQ Series, that it will be compatible with the Madi and Super Madi cards was the point that convinced me to buy one.
    I am reading now “We are looking into market demand for an SQ MADI card at present, but there is nothing planned for production at this time.” and I am really disappointed.
    The Madi format is the only option for an absolute stable, reliable multichannel long distance audio connection between two (or more) locations. With only one fiber without any repetitors (as you have to use with Dante), I have been able to connect 800 meters distances between several stages and scenes.
    It is the preferred format for a lot of broadcast radio & tv trucks and large PA systems.
    The SQ Series are not broadcast consoles but can be used in lot of situations where a broadcast mixer is just too much, too big or too expensive for a secondary mix.
    Believe me, enabling the SQ series to communicate with already existing Madi configurations would open it a major market.
    Not speaking about enabling the SQ Series to replace or double a Digico mixing desk using existing Digico stage boxes for example…

    No news about MADI.

    Still wanting to use with Direct Out Andiamo MC 32ch preamps, Crookwood Igloo 32ch preamps, and 5xRME Micstasy 8ch preamps…
