• Hi, hopefully this might help.

    You can create and store your own custom I/O patching, selecting the ‘Library’ button when you’re on the I/O screen itself. This is really useful, since you can quickly switch between recording / playback at a live session. I have one I’ve just named ‘16tk Multi’ as an example.
    This is great if you only need the ma…[Read more]

    Hi there, I thought I might be able to help with a few questions you may have regarding your post.

    I’ve filmed and recorded a good few live ‘one take’ studio recordings using my SQ5. I just use the 16 tracks directly to an external drive, it’s really so simple.

    When I want to mix and not use Pro Tools (in my example), it’s very quic…[Read more]

  • I’ve owned quite a few systems, for exactly the same purpose as you’re looking to use the SQ-5 for. (I recently purchased the SQ-5 for this very reason)
    As a ‘mobile recording setup’ I personally don’t think you’ll find a better sounding mixer to use in its class.
    To my ears, the mic pre’s in the desk sound excellent. I would describe the…[Read more]

    I’ve had no issue running all 16 tracks directly to Pro Tools (to an external SSD).

    With regards to your issue with Logic X, have you checked the buffer size? If it’s set too low in a 96k session, that could be why it’s freezing up perhaps? Try setting it to maybe 1024 samples and see how you get on..(Sorry if you already did!)

    Yes, pulli…[Read more]

    I’m now running OSX Mojave. I did have some formatting issues using the OSX disk utility, running Sierra at that time. Hopefully High Sierra fixed the mounting issues when trying to format an external drive in the MS-DOS (FAT) format.

    Anyway, if you open disk utility and go to the erase tab once you’ve selected the drive to format. By default,…[Read more]

    The drive was a Samsung M3 1TB.
    Was a bit of a pain formatting via Mac OS (so that the desk could format it itself, but once done it recorded all the tracks with zero errors.

    Hope that helps.

    I used the SQ drive (via SSD) & multitrack recorded a 2 hour show the other night.
    It worked perfectly.. 👍
