    You’re getting your terminology all mixed up. Bit depth and sample rate are two very separate things!

    If you are going to try my suggestion of using the line-in as a direct-out, you must use a balanced connection on TRS jacks otherwise you will un-balance the source coming in on the XLR socket.

    It occurred to me that the line-in sockets are pretty much (DC-blocking caps and pad resistors aside) wired in parallel with the XLR sockets.

    If you are using only XLR sources, your line-in sockets are free to become direct-outs. It would all depend on whether the additional impedance of two lots of pad resistors would load the source down too much or not.

    Essentially, if it works, you could get a short 12-way balanced TRS loom and connect line-in 1 to line-in 13, line-in 2 to line-in 14, etc… to get your monitor splits.

    Or just do what everyone used to do “back in the day” and just use a load of XLR Y-cables.

    Or, specifically with Qu, you could buy a digital stage-box which would allow you to use the in-built input patching.

    Lots of ways to skin this particular cat.

    Cheers,

    John.

    In case you didn’t know already, you can get a finer grained control over the faders. Press and hold a fader in the normal way but whilst you are holding it, you can move your finger horizontally away from the fader. The further you are away, the finer the control you have when you move your finger up and down.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Quote from A&H website:

    Windows 10 – read here – please note that the correct operation of this OS with the Qu Windows driver is not yet verified by our Software Test department. As a result, support for Windows 10 is not currently offered for this product.

    It sounds like you are comparing Qu with GLD but with the GLD in “NOM” mode. If you switch your GLD to “D-Classic” mode you should find it operates exactly the same as Qu.

    There is also the button at the bottom of the Setup->Control->Custom Layer screen which can lock the desk into Custom Layer Only, regardless of user.

    24 display of pan/balance values in the Qu’s screen

    I am a bit puzzled by this – You can see pans in the routing screen.

    nor the usb 2.0 connectivity

    I’d be interested to hear what you feel is lacking about the USB connectivity?

    The only problem with devices like that is that you don’t get independent mixes on each headphone out (if you need that kind of thing).

    Hi,

    The most logical solution in your situation would probably be to use external headphone amps and feed them from the mix outputs. If you connected your studio monitors to the main L/R output it would enable you to use the L/R mute button to quickly mute the monitors, leaving the headphone feeds in tact. Alternatively, you could set the alt-out source to “PAFL” (in Setup->Output Patch->Surface) and feed your studio monitors from the alt-out. This would enable you to PAFL an individual channel through the studio monitors.

    Another alternative would be to mix completely in cubase and just use the Qu for audio routing duties. You should be able to set up several “studio” outputs in cubase in addition to your normal main mix output. Then route your main mix output to USB output 1-2, “studio” outputs to USB outputs 3-4, 5-6, etc… Then on the Qu, you would just send channels 1-2 to the LR mix, 3-4 to Mix 5-6, 5-6 to Mix 7-8, etc…

    Hopefully that makes sense? There is a great Sound on Sound article about this here http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/apr12/articles/cubase-0412.htm

    Hi,

    It sounds like your gain structure might need some attention. Have you tried turning your FOH amps/speakers down and raising the level on the mixer?

    Have you tried this:

    One of the guys here managed to get MidiOX to run on a Mac, but I don’t know how.

    The Home->Qu-Drive->Multitrack screen managed playback and recording all in one screen with one set of meters and transport controls.

    Since multitrack playback always sends Qu-Drive channels 17+18 to ST1 it has to reflect this when you’re stopped/paused/playing. Once you are armed/recording, it will show you the output patching which has been set up in the Setup screen.

    Basically, the issue stems from the routing being fixed in one direction, but patch-able in the other direction. Hopefully that explains the behaviour you’ve been seeing. Apologies if this isn’t very intuitive, it’s something we could look at for future releases.

    Regards,
