Powered by Allen & Heath’s revolutionary XCVI 96kHz FPGA engine, SQ-5 is built for professionals in demanding live sound, recording and streaming applications. Delivering class-leading high-resolution audio with an ultra-low <0.7ms latency, the SQ-5 gives you unrivalled power and audio fidelity.
MIXING HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER
With each new design, the Allen & Heath team strives to get closer to the ultimate mixing experience.
SQ’s dashboard is centred around a high-res 7” capacitive touchscreen, framed by an array of high-grip, illuminating encoders to create an intuitive, integrated blend of clear visual feedback and immediate, hands-on control.
Channels and mixes can be dragged and dropped to any strip, with custom naming and colour coding on the colour strip displays, allowing you to build a mixing environment that works for you.
Each strip features our patented Chromatic channel metering system, giving you at-a-glance level indication thanks to LEDs with variable brightness and colour.
ALL THE TOOLS FOR THE PERFECT MIX
SQ comes equipped with all the processing you need to craft the perfect mix.
Every input has HPF, a super-fast gate with sidechain and filter, a musical 4-band parametric equaliser, and Peak/RMS compressor for control and shaping of levels and transients.
Mixes have both a parametric and 28 band graphic EQ along with compressor as standard, all ready to switch in when required.
SQ is armed with 8 stereo FX engines and comes complete with the acclaimed RackExtra library, featuring emulations of legendary classic reverbs, gated reverbs, delays, modulators and more.
Every engine has its own dedicated stereo return too, so you don’t need to use up any of your 48 input channels.
