    Hi we’ve just started using an SQ7 and OBS, however, we can’t seem to get a stereo feed into OBS (we’re using aux 8 as output, and channels 1&2 into OBS (windows 10), does anyone have any tips? We’ve installed all the plugins..
    Thanks

    Have you changed the USB on the colsole to USB-B ? (the USB on the back, as I presume you use that port)

    We have it up and running ok, using two separate stereo channels for the desk.
    (we use separate worship group and lectern/speaker feeds as the noise cancellation is very useful for the speakers, but definitely not for the music).

    It works nicely as long as you add about 20 – 24dB gain to the input on OBS.

    We had some issues with getting an output back to our desk for video inserts etc. but found the Audio Monitor plugin very useful for this purposes.
    Using the USB input helped cut down on the cabling (originally we used a Focusrite interface).

    Thanks John, could I ask, what your set up is re the two stereo channels from the desk? As we’ve looked and we have done everything correctly we believe, but are still only getting mono in OBS.. Thanks again

    You mention that you are using Aux 8 to feed the computer running the OBS software (and very useful software it is, too!) Do you mean that you are using the Aux 8 output socket on the back of the mixer, and connecting this to a USB audio interface? What type of cable are you using between the mixer and the audio interface? The Aux output connector is actually a balanced mono signal; you’d need to use two Aux outputs to feed the interface. Check the mixer setup: if Aux 8 has been configured as a stereo output (even though only one fader will be used on the desk), check the IO Patching: Aux 8 should be mapped to TWO outputs. (in my photo, we are using Aux 6 to send a stereo signal to our CD recorder, from mix output connectors 7 and 8. These use cables wired to convert the XLR balanced output signals to unbalanced connectors: as the cable length is less than one meter there is no discernible loss of signal quality)
