    Does anyone know if there is a user guide for the SQ5 Dynamic Multiband Compressor somewhere?
    Most of it is pretty obvious but are there more details about the Modes – Auto Opto etc anywhere?
    Plus what are the LINK and REL buttons for?

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    if you press Link all values of the four bands will be set to the same amount. If you change one of them, the same amount of value change is applied to all 4 bands.
    REL(ative) does also “link” all 4 bands together, but the values stay where they were set to individually. If the Gain on the the LF is -2dB, on the the LM is -4dB, on HM is 0 and on HF +2 and you apply a gain change of – 3dB to any of the bands gains, you will lower all gains by 3dB. The result will be: LF -5dB,LM -7dB, HM -3dB and HF -1dB.

    Hope that helps a bit.
    Cheers

    Since the effects are also available on the flagship model (dLive) you can find a brief description of the effects DEEP or RackFX in the reference manual of the dLive at https://www.allen-heath.com/dlive-home/dlive-documents/

    There is a fairly detailed description of all the functions in the dLive reference guide here – https://www.allen-heath.com/media/dLive-Firmware-Reference-Guide-V1.8.pdf#page=112&zoom=auto,-274,810
    The only difference between the dLive version and the SQ version is the GUI (with bands split across two tabs at the bottom).

    Cheers,
    Keith.
