    I’ve spent a good part of today trying out a SQ6 to see if I should upgrade from my QU24.
    Lots of nice features but I was unable to connect my QU to the SQ6. (I’m looking to set up the QU as a monitor mixer with the SQ6 for FOH)

    I’ve updated to the latest QU firmware and I read in the release notes that QU and SQ should now be connectable with the QU providing the clock.

    Has anyone got a connection diagram or indeed been able to make this feature work?

    In addition, is it possible to directly connect 2 SQ mixers without the expense of adding an IO card to each mixer?

    Finally, when will the IO be available.

    TIA

    Hi!

    We have some videos and articles on the way to explain this, however I can help explain an easy way to route audio here.

    At the moment, the SQ can route it’s direct outputs to Slink which will appear on the Qu as DSnake In.

    The Qu can route it’s monitor outputs 1-40 (usually used for ME) which will appear on SLink inputs 21-60.

    This of course require V1.1.0 on the SQ and V1.93 on the Qu.

    Two SQ’s can be connected directly via the SLink port.

    IO cards are on the way and aimed for Q2 this year.

    Thank!

    Alex

    Is this also possible using GLD running 1.60 instead of QU?

    I own an SQ5 and regularly work in a venue with a GLD, and was discussing over the weekend how useful it would be to do a digital monitor split using the ME channels from GLD.

    Hi Ben,

    This is not possible unfortunately. You will be able to connect SQ and GLD over Dante once the SQ Dante Module is released.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Alex for clarifying this.

    At the moment, the SQ can route it’s direct outputs…

    You said at the moment… what is planned for this?

    I’m looking at getting an SQ to compliment my Qu (FOH + Monitor desk) but would need to be able to send groups from SQ to my QU.

    Hi Jakethepeg,

    What I meant by ‘At the moment’ was more that this is the easiest way it works for input sharing. You can however route mix outputs and FX between the two consoles already.

    Nothing else is planned.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Alex, do the mix outputs and FX have direct outs?

    Hi Jakethepeg,

    They don’t, but a mix bus can be routed to multiple outputs at once.

    Thanks!

    Alex. If the dSnake is connected to the SQ then how does one connect to their stage boxes?
