The AnalogiQ design offers superb transparency, minimal distortion and an ultra-low noise floor, with a warm, musical sound that can be missing from some digital consoles. The analogue signal is captured by high class, low latency 24bit analogue to digital converters matched to high quality 24bit digital to analogue converters to deliver the required outputs.

The Qu-16 features all the controls that you need, in all the right places.  Once you start using Qu-16 you’ll sense the years of research into ergonomics and the hands-on mixing experience that Allen has drawn upon to deliver a wonderfully natural layout and workflow.
