    Hi there,
    i have a SQ6.
    Going to do some surround sound gigs.

    The speaker layout will be
    ROOM: rear LR, mid LR, fOH,
    STAGE: 7 mono monitors (and maybe 1 x LR for surround for the musicians. But thats an option at this stage.)
    So thats 4 (probably 3) stereo mixes and 7 mono.
    With a GX48/16 stage box i guess i have enough I/O.
    Any reason the SQ6 can’t handle this set up well? I love the SQ and would rather not have to learn an Avantis if the SQ is up to the job which i think it is.
    Thanks.

    Let us know if you succeed in creating an authentic surround mix with a stereo desk 🙂

    What is an example of a surround desk?
    The theatre the shows will be at has a Dolby Atmos Surround Sound System
    installed.

    Thanks, got a reply from A&H. They say SQ will do fine for my application. So for now i’ll stay with SQ and make it work.
    Love the sound of DLive with the touch screen X/Y surround gizmo.

    I don’t know why somebody would tell you that the SQ can do surround. It can’t do real surround.

    I just need to send a drone play back track to the surround speakers, and 1 delay used by 1 or 2 vocalists.
    I don’t see why using Groups or Auxes into the 1 or 2 matrices and 1 spare stereo aux won’t work.

    OK… My Feeling then is, Surround Mix is a big Word for this use Case…

    Ah thats good Tobi!!
    What would it be called then? Static surround? Stereo plus?
    I do appreciate the complexity of true surround, and i would imagine a separate mixer and engineer just for surround would be ideal.

    Mmh… Your scenario is more “an FX speaker”maybe?
